Analyst Report

This ETF technically offers broad commodity exposure, but the underlying index is tilted heavily towards energy resources. Crude oil, natural gas, and other energy commodities make up close to 70% of the exposure, meaning that metals and livestock are under-represented in this products. GSG is essentially a cross between a pure energy ETF such as DBE and a more broad-based commodity fund such as DBC or USCI. We don’t see GSG as a tremendously useful product; those seeking energy exposure would be better off in an oil ETF, while those seeking balanced commodity exposure should gravitate towards DBS or USCI.
