PBE Fund Description

The PowerShares Dynamic Biotechnology & Genome Portfolio ETF tracks a tiered equal-weighted index of companies principally engaged in biotechnology and genetic engineering.

PBE FactSet Analytics Insight

As is evident from its name, PBE goes beyonda unique portfolio of biotech and peripheral-industry companies the scope of pure biotech firms, which causes PBE to differ substantially from other biotech ETFs and our segment benchmark. Only about 1/2 of its holdings overlap those of our biotech benchmark. Moreover, far from a plain-vanilla approach, PBE's underlying index uses a multifactor system (fundamental and technical factors) to select stocks and a tiered equal-weighting system to construct its portfolio. The approach produces a unique portfolio of biotech and peripheral-industry companies. PBE is one of the least liquid biotech ETFs but, in a highly liquid segment, that still translates to penny-wide spreads and ample block liquidity. While PBE's sizeable fee generates a strong headwind to tracking, it generally recovers some of its expense and overall lags its index by less than its fee.
