DBO FactSet Analytics Insight
DBO is a large and liquid ETP that gets access
“DBO optimizes exposure to the curve to combat contango” to WTI oil using a "next generation" futures strategy. DBO gets exposure to the price of oil using future contracts, and futures-based exposure is subject to negative roll yield or decay when the futures curve is upsloping. DBO optimizes exposure to the curve to combat contango by rolling into whichever contract month (within the next 13) looks most attractive by its rules, rather than rolling front-month contracts. The fund enjoys ample liquidity for institutional and retail investors, with manageable spreads and reasonable daily volume. DBO charges a low fee for its segment and has attracted strong investor interest, but tracking can be very unsteady. Like many of its competitors, DBO is structured as a commodity pool, so it reports capital gains on a K-1 at a 60/40 blended rate.
