This ETF offers a way to access the global mining industry through an international basket of companies engaged in the extraction and production of metals, including aluminum, steel, and precious metals. As such, PICK can be useful as a tool for tilting portfolio exposure towards the mining sector or betting on a short term surge from mining stocks. PICK features by far the most diverse portfolio of holdings among broad-based mining ETFs, making this an appealing option for those interested in establishing well-rounded exposure to the mining sector over the long-haul. However, short-term traders who value liquidity above all else will likely opt for the more popular XME instead. Furthermore, this ETF is heavily tilted towards companies from developed nations; investors looking to tap into more lucrative opportunities overseas should consider EMT, which offers exposure to mining companies in emerging markets.
