KWT Fund Description

The Market Vectors Solar Energy ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of companies that earn at least 50% of their revenues from the solar energy industry.

KWT ETF.com Insight

KWT only holds companies involved in the solarBesides the US, the Greater China region accounts for another 40% energy industry, so it covers a specific subset of the broader renewable energy market. To be included, a company must derive at least half of its revenues from solar-related business. The market-cap weighted fund carries heavy exposure to the US and the Greater China region (Taiwan, China, Hong Kong). Most of the companies in KWT’s portfolio are quite small. Unfortunately, KWT hasn’t had as much success as its other solar-focused competitor, TAN, and is currently at high risk for closure. Although KWT and TAN take slightly different approaches to constructing their portfolios, they mostly hold the same companies. (Insight updated 09/17/15)
