Analyst Report

This ETF is often described as a "third generation" product, and is noteworthy in that the composition of the underlying index changes monthly based on observable price signals. USCI screens out commodities that show the most significant backwardation or moderate contango, making it appealing to those frustrated by the nuances of futures-based investing. The rules-based index is designed so that exposure is spread across multiple types of commodities at all times, making USCI an alternative to products such as DBC or DJP for investors who buy into the academic research behind the underlying index. USCI is slightly more expensive than DBC or DJP, but the manner in which the index is constructed arguably makes this ETF a better way to gain exposure to prices of natural resources.
