The cleverly-named TAN delivers targeted exposure to the solar power energy, making it potentially useful for both betting on long-term adoption of this energy source or capitalizing on perceived short-term mispricings. Like many granular ETFs focusing on specific sub-sectors, TAN doesn't offer tremendous diversification; there are only about 35 individual components--including both U.S. and international stocks--with three or four names accounting for a third of assets. Investors seeking broad-based exposure to clean energy may want to take a look at ICLN or GEX, while KWT offers another option for targeted solar power exposure. TAN's hyper-targeted focus makes it appropriate only for a select few, but for those seeing to overweight the solar power space this ETF can be a nice option.
