SBIO Fund Description

The ALPS Medical Breakthroughs ETF tracks the Poliwogg Medical Breakthroughs Index, a market-cap weighted index comprising US-listed biotech companies with one or more drugs currently in either Phase II or Phase III FDA clinical trials.

SBIO FactSet Analytics Insight

If you're looking for broad biotech exposure, you won't find it in SBIO; the fund targets biotech companies with drugs in Phase II and Phase III of FDA clinical trials, and limits itself to US-listed firms with market caps between $200M and $5B. SBIO also screens for sustainability—meaning constituent firms have enough cash on hand to last 2 years. Given the low historical success rates in clinical trials, the fund is a high-risk, high-reward bet on a small subset of biotech companies. SBIO's Tradability isn't bad for a specialty fund, with decent volume and sizeable spreads, and its underlying liquidity is good. It charges a middling fee for a niche fund, which may give it an edge over its more expensive rival, BBC.
