This ETN offers exposure to a basket of base metals, including copper, zinc, and aluminum. As such, this ETN can be a tactical tool for investors with a bullish outlook on this corner of the commodities market; those seeking more broad-based exposure to natural resources would be better served by a fund such as DBC or DJP that includes precious metals, agriculture, and others. Those seeking more granular exposure have metal-specific ETPs available to them, such as JJC. The structure of UBM is worth noting; as an ETN that tracks a basket of futures contracts, this fund will avoid tracking error issues but does expose investors to the credit risk of the underlying issue. For investors looking for broad exposure to the base metal group, UBM represents a decent choice, especially for those who do not like to achieve their commodity exposure via the equities market. However, those looking for a more liquid option would be advised to seek out JJM, although UBM does offer a cheaper expense ratio.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for UBM on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
