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 beyond 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.
