Analyst Report

SMH tracks the overall performance of the 25 largest, U.S. listed companies that produce semiconductors, a crucial component of modern computing. Semiconductor chips act as the brains to numerous devices that we rely on today, including smartphones, calculators, computers, and much more. As technology continues to improve and expand, these chips will invariably be in demand to help power new devices. The fund focuses on U.S. stocks entirely, offering investors concentrated exposure to America’s semiconductor industry. Investors should note that this fund is equally split between giant, large, and mid cap size companies, offering a well-balanced risk/return profile. Given its shallow portfolio, SMH is inherently top-heavy; the top ten holdings account for over two-thirds of total assets. Overall, this ETF is fairly priced and it may hold appeal as a long-term, core holding for buy-and-hold investors looking to tilt exposure towards this corner of the technology sector.
