DBB Fund Description

The PowerShares DB Base Metals Fund tracks an index of 3 base metal futures contracts. It selects contracts based on the shape of the futures curve to minimize contango.

DBB FactSet Analytics Insight

With 90% of segment assets AUM, DBB is the clear breadwinner, even if its $2M median volume and 12 bp spreads are unimpressive. DBB holds a basket of futures contracts as opposed to merely promising to track them, but also requires the receipt of a K-1 at year-end. DBB equally weights just 3 metals—aluminum, copper and zinc—which is two fewer than our benchmark. The exclusion of nickel and lead cuts out 16% of our production-weighted benchmark, and DBB's equal weighting of the three metals gives zinc a 24% bump and copper an 11% haircut. Although its 71 bp expense ratio isn't the segment's lowest, DBB is easily the cheapest round-trip option given trading costs. The fund's liquidity and size—rare here—make it our Analyst Pick.
