GEX Fund Description

The VanEck Vectors Global Alternative Energy ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of companies that derive at least 50% of their revenues from alternative energy.

GEX Factset Analytics Insight

GEX holds a wide spectrum of companies that earn at least 1/2 their revenues from the broader renewable energy industry, which includes solar, wind, biofuel and geothermal players, as well as companies focused on energy efficiency. Its broad portfolio looks very different from our neutral and narrow benchmark. For one, GEX heavily overweights the US, with names like Cree, Eaton, Tesla and First Solar dominating its top holdings. GEX is also far more sector-diverse, reaching well beyond the renewable energy equipment and services sector that our benchmark heavily favors. Poor Fit score aside, the fund is fairly cheap and highly efficient. Overall, GEX is a decent take on a segment where no fund Fits the benchmark well.
