XBISPDR S&P BIOTECH ETF
XBI Fund Description
The SPDR S&P Biotech ETF tracks an equal-weighted index of US biotechnology stocks.
XBI Factset Analytics Insight
XBI provides exposure to one of the broadest portfolios among US biotech ETFs. The fund equal-weights its portfolio, which in turn emphasizes small- and micro-caps and greatly reduces single-name risk. Thus, the weighted-average market cap is much smaller than some competitors. Unlike other funds in this segment, XBI is a pure biotech play, with relatively small pharma overlap as we see it. This highly efficient fund, which charges less than competing funds, has a history of beating its index due to revenue from securities lending. It has attracted a large asset base and trades with excellent volume. The fund’s alternative take on the space earns it a place on our Opportunities List.
