With ETFs, Don't Always Think Big

News summary by MFWire's editors

What makes an ETF great? Is it the size of the fund, or something else? Seeking Alpha looked for the answer by examining how much the ten largest commodity ETFs earn on an average year.

The reporter, Jared Cummins, notes that statistics show that bigger ETFs are not always better than smaller competitors.

The top ten biggest commodity ETFs are SPDR Gold Trust, COMEX Gold Trust, iShares Silver Trust, DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund, Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index TR ETN, Physical Swiss Gold Shares, DB Agriculture Fund, United States Natural Gas Fund LP, GSCI Commodity-Indexed Trust Fund, and the United States Oil Fund.

The fourth largest ETF, the DBC, has the second highest revenues. IAU is second in the amount of assets, which could mean that investors are attracted because it is the cheapest, according to Cummins.
