ISHARES NASDAQ BIOTECH ETF

IBB_CFD.ETF

The coverage offered by hugely popular IBB differs dramatically from most peer funds. It tracks a market-cap-weighted index of NASDAQ-listed biotech companies, while most peer funds use alternative weighting schemes. IBB’s cap-weighting produces a basket that heavily favors large-caps and concentrates exposure in top 10 names. IBB also differs from some peer funds and our segment benchmark in its emphasis on pharmaceuticals. Since the fund can only hold companies traded on the NASDAQ, IBB may miss opportunities in companies traded on the NYSE, which several of the other biotech funds are eligible to hold. This extremely large and liquid product has a good history of tracking its underlying index and does so at a cost towards the lower end of its segment.
