Analyst Report

PUW is not like any other fund in the Alternative Energy ETFdb Category, as this ETF seeks to replicate an index constructed around a unique investment thesis. PUW's underlying index includes stocks that are significantly involved in transitional energy bridge technologies, with an emphasis on improving the use of fossil fuels. As such, the tech sector receives a relatively small weighting (compared to other alternative energy funds at least) with heavier weights given to industrials and materials. Investors who buy PUW thinking they're getting into wind or solar power companies will be disappointed; it's important to take a long look under the hood of this ETF and understand the risk/return profile. PUW offers exposure to a very specialized investing strategy. For those who understand and subscribe to the thesis behind this fund, PUW is the only ETF offering that exposure. This ETF may have appeal in a number of different roles. It's useful as a way of establishing a short-term tactical tilt towards this unique corner of the global energy market, and might be also appealing as a satellite holding in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio that offers the potential for excess returns over the long run. Finally, it's noteworthy that PUW maintains a very balanced portfolio; assets are spread evenly among component companies, meaning minimal concentration in any one name.
