XLB Fund Description

The Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US basic materials companies. The fund includes only the materials components of the S&P 500.

XLB Factset Analytics Insight

XLB is a massive, liquid ETF that invests in basic materials companies from the S&P 500. Its limited selection universe means it is heavily concentrated, with just a few holdings making up a huge chunk of the portfolio. Not surprisingly, XLB favors large-caps relative to our broader benchmark. Still, it offers reasonable exposure to the space. XLB is one of the most popular funds in the US materials segment, with a huge asset base and unmatched trading volume. It’s an excellent choice for occasional traders and institutions alike.
