DBE Fund Description

The PowerShares DB Energy Fund tracks an index of 5 energy-related futures contracts. It selects contracts based on the shape of the futures curve to minimize contango.

DBE Factset Analytics Insight

DBE aims to be a better energy fund, recognizing that the production-weighted energy space is extremely concentrated in just two commodities and can get hit hard by contango. The fund weights commodities by liquidity rather than production and strategically selects futures contracts in an attempt to maximize roll yield. The index underweights WTI and Brent crude relative to our benchmark, while providing extra exposure to Heating Oil, RBOB Gasoline and Natural Gas. Gas oil is completely excluded. With these parameters, the fund is designed to reduce the effects of contango. Average daily volume is fair and spreads are narrow. The expenses are average for this sector, though spotty tracking means realized costs will likely be higher.
