IYM Fund Description

IYM tracks a broad, market-cap-weighted index of US basic materials companies that includes coal companies.

IYM Factset Analytics Insight

IYM is a popular, straightforward basic materials fund that tracks a vanilla market-cap-weighted index. It provides simple exposure to a small list of well-known basic materials firms, but also dips into other sectors like industrial conglomerates and business support services that cause significant deviation from our benchmark. It's not a bad take on the market, but investors do need to be aware of its sector biases and large-cap tilt before jumping in. IYM is easy to trade for retail investors, with tight average spreads, and underlying liquidity is excellent. IYM charges an average fee, and effective fund management has kept true holding costs below that sticker price.
