Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to the global natural resources industry, targeting a corner of the world economy that includes companies engaged in the extraction and production of raw materials ranging from metals to timber to oil and gas producers. As such, GNAT can be expected to exhibit a reasonably strong correlation to commodity prices; stocks of companies that focus on the production of a specific resource or group of resources tend to move in unison with the prices of the underlying assets. Since many of the component companies are included in more broad-based equity ETFs, GNAT might not be most useful as a component of a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio; instead, this ETF may be more appropriate for those looking to establish a tactical tilt towards stocks that will thrive during bull commodity markets. GNAT is also unique in that the underlying index uses market capitalization to determine component companies, but weights within the index based on cash dividends paid. That may be appealing to those looking to avoid cap-weighting, and can enhance the effective yield realized in this ETF. The balance among individual securities in this portfolio is impressive, and weightings to a number of different developed and emerging markets are included. The methodology of the underlying index results in a concentration to energy companies, a fact that is worth considering when analyzing potential investments. Investors seeking more targeted exposure to commodity producing stocks have several options available in the Commodity Producers Equities ETFdb Category; other broad-based alternatives include HAP and CRBQ.
