This ETN offers a way for investors to gain exposure to a basket of commodity futures, as the related index includes a number of different natural resources across various commodity families. The index to which this note is linked is somewhat unique in that it will not follow a predetermined roll methodology; rather, roll decisions are made based on current market conditions in an attempt to mitigate the potentially adverse impact of contango. This methodology may be preferable to a strategy that invests exclusively in front month contracts, though there are potential drawbacks as well. It should be noted that DPU is an ETN, and as such investors are exposed to the credit risk of the issuing institution. However, there are some potential advantages to the ETN structure, especially in the commodity space. DPU may be more efficient from a tax perspectives than partnerships such as DBC, especially for those with a holding period greater than one year.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DPU on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Commodities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
