This ETF offers exposure to the global clean energy index, including both U.S. and international stocks in the underlying portfolio. PBD also diversifies across various types of clean energy--such as wind, solar, and hydro--making it an interesting option for those looking to bet on a clean energy boom but unwilling to make a concentrated bet on a specific sub-sector. Relative to competing options such as ICLN or GEX, PBD may be appealing because it maintains a much smaller concentration of assets among its top holdings--thereby minimizing the fund's dependence on a few select stocks. On the downside, PBD is significantly more expensive than some alternatives, particularly ICLN. Those who value balanced exposure may find that PBD is worth the extra fees charged relative to other options.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for PBD on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
