This ETF is one of the most popular options for achieving exposure to agricultural commodities; DBA invests in a diversified basket of various agricultural natural resources, and as such can be a useful diversifying agent or inflation hedge. The targeted focus of this fund makes it often more appropriate for investors looking to implement a shorter term tactical tilt, though DBA may also be useful as a component of a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio. Those seeking more broadly-based commodities exposure may prefer funds such as DBC or DJP. Investors considering agriculture exposure should take note of the frequency with which the underlying holdings are rolled and the mix of exposure across various contracts. The tax consequences should also be noted; as an ETF, DBA will feature slightly different tax treatments than ETNs such as AGF (it also won't expose investors to the credit risk of the issuing institution).
