This ETF offers exposure to the domestic health care industry and it uses an alternative strategy to access this lucrative asset class. The fund follows the S&P 500 Health Care Index, however each sub-industry component is given an equal weight. A strategy like this might appeal to investors looking to avoid traditional indexing methodology which typically distributes holdings based on market-cap. RYH is designed to offer more balanced exposure for the long-term investor since it has the added benefit of avoiding the potentially adverse impact of rallies or crashes in a specific sub-industry within health care. RYH is an alternative to XLV, however it has a higher price-tag as the expense ratio is higher and liquidity is lower.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for RYH 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 Health & Biotech Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
