This ETF is one of the more unique products in the Commodity Producers Equities ETFdb Category; GUNR focuses on the "upstream" portion of the natural resources supply chain, maintaining meaningful exposure to the water and timber industries along with positions in companies engaged in energy production, metals extraction, and agriculture. While this focus of GUNR might seem unique, this product consists of many well known stocks that are also found in other commodity-related products. GUNR is tilted heavily towards mega cap stocks, including Big Oil and major mining furms. Products such as GUNR may have appeal as ways to establish "indirect" exposure to commodity prices. Because the profitability of the component stocks tends to move in unison with spot prices of the underlying resources, this fund should perform well when natural resource prices are on the rise. GUNR can be used in a number of different ways; those looking to maintain a tilt towards commodity intensive equities might find this fund to be a valuable addition to a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio. It can also be an effective way to establish more tactical, short-term exposure to the commodity industry. The GUNR portfolio consists of a number of names that are probably widely recognized by most investors, including mega cap energy and mining firms. With more than 100 individual components, GUNR offers relatively deep exposure to the global commodity sector; it also achieves impressive balance, spreading holdings relatively evenly across the basket of stocks. In terms of expenses, GUNR is towards the low end for this corner of the ETF market. For investors seeking more targeted exposure to commodity-intensive equities, there are a number of options in the Commodity Producers Equities ETFdb Category that focus on specific natural resources (such as timber, mining, or agriculture). There are also several choices for more broad-based exposure; ETFs such as HAP will have considerable overlap with GUNR.
