ITBiShares U.S. Home Construction ETF
ITB Fund Description
ITB tracks a market-cap-weighted index of companies involved in the production and sale of materials used in home construction.
ITB Factset Analytics Insight
ITB provides investors with a traditional market-cap selection approach to the US homebuilding industry, with a capped weighting methodology to ensure diversification. The resulting basket of stocks isn't quite vanilla though: ITB trades purity for breadth. Its holdings extend past the confines of our narrow benchmark and into related industries that encompass: manufacturers, sellers, and distributors of home furnishings, homebuilding, housewares, specialty items, and materials used in construction and refurbishing. At times, this shows up as a lower beta play on the space. Still, ITB's portfolio can at times offer chunky positions in leading homebuilders. The underlying index will rebalance quarterly.
