Vanguard Mid-Cap ETF Experiences Big Inflow – NASDAQ.com

Easily the most popular is the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF ( GDX ) which has over $8 billion in AUM, though GDXJ and RING are solid options too. This latest fund from Sprott though, looks to take the smart beta craze which has been hitting the ETF world and apply it to the gold mining space, hopefully resulting in some outperformance. This process is accomplished by tracking the Sprott Zacks Gold Miners Index, which focuses on 25 gold miners that have high betas compared to the price of gold, keeping the overall basket small. This allows for each company to receive a decent weight in the benchmark, and thus contribute to overall performance (read The Guide to Gold Mining ETFs ). The weights for this group are determined not by market cap but instead by looking at which have the highest quarterly revenue growth measured on a year-over-year basis, and stronger relative balance sheets as measured by long-term debt to equity levels. Additionally, the index will be rebalanced quarterly, ensuring that the latest company results are reflected in the index, and thus SGDM as well.
