Analyst Report

This ETF provides exposure to the mortgage backed security slice of the bond market, a corner of the finance world that has seen its share of troubles over the past few years. While MBS funds were at the heart of the subprime crisis, this product invests in liquid, stable bonds that are unlikely to default, pay out solid rates of interest, and provide valuable diversification benefits to a portfolio. Due to these benefits, most investors should consider adding some MBS holdings to their portfolio, albeit in a very small amount. Although MBG doesn't offer nearly the same level of liquidity that its counterpart MBB does, the fund is significantly cheaper than its iShares cousin, making it a solid choice for those in it for the long haul. However, the fund is significantly more concentrated than MBB as the fund has less than 30 securities in total. This suggests that investors would probably be better served by investing in the iShares product instead; this is one case where a higher expense ratio is probably worth the added cost.
