SPDR S&P Global Natural Resources ETF

StateStreetSPDR185Offering one of the best “one-stop-shops” for broad commodity producer exposure, the SPDR S&P Global Natural Resources (GNR) should be on investors’ lists. The ETF’s underlying index tracks 90 of the largest U.S. and foreign companies in the materials businesses. GNR is weighted so that investors get a balanced approach to commodity investing as the fund has one-third of its portfolio in each of the three main hard asset categories — energy, agriculture and metals & mining.

This provides exposure to everything from forest and paper products producers to gold miners and oil refiners.

So far, the ETF has been flat since its inception in 2010. But GNR does pay a nice 2.5% yield — so at least investors are being paid to wait. And given the sector’s cheap valuation and the potential to outperform next year, investors may not have to wait very long.

Expenses for the SPDR S&P Global Natural Resources run at just 0.40% — or $40 per $10,000 invested.
