This fund offers exposure to one of the world's most important agricultural commodities, and potentially has appeal as an inflation hedge. CORN may be too specialized for inclusion in a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio, through it can be a very useful tool for expressing a tactical tilt towards this corner of the agricultural market. Investors seeking more broadly-based exposure to agricultural commodities have a number of options in the Agricultural Commodities ETFdb Category, while those seeking to access other types of resources may prefer the funds in the Commodities ETFdb Category. CORN is unique not only for the resources included but for the structure of this fund; unlike many commodity products, CORN diversifies across multiple maturities. That structure is designed to mitigate or potentially eliminate the adverse impact of contango, making CORN more useful for investors expressing a longer-term outlook on the commodity.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for CORN on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Agricultural Commodities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
