This ETF offers exposure to four major agricultural commodities, including corn, sugar, soybeans, and wheat. As such, TAGS is one of several options available to investors looking to maintain exposure to agricultural commodities, an asset class that may have appeal as a hedge against inflation or a way to bet on rising natural resource prices around the globe. While TAGS might not have tremendous appeal in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio, it can be an efficient tool for those looking to establish tactical exposure to this corner of the market. There are several noteworthy attributes about TAGS. First, the underlying holdings of this ETF are actually other ETFs offered by Teucrium. Those ETFs in turn hold futures contracts linked to the actual commodities. As such, it should be noted that TAGS will not necessarily reflect movements in spot prices of the underlying commodities, but rather the performance of a futures-based strategy (meaning that the slope of the futures curve will impact returns). It should also be noted that TAGS maintains a considerably more focused portfolio than many other agricultural commodity ETFs; this fund focuses on the four primary agricultural commodities, without diversifying into other resources.
