Basic materials companies are involved in the exploration, development and processing of raw materials, but many times target specific resources, such as gold, silver and crude oil. This sector also includes companies that run refineries and plants to develop refined materials. The dividend yields within this sector are above average in comparison to the wider market.

If you’re looking to invest in basic materials stocks, you may also be interested in materials exchange-traded funds (ETFs). These funds offer a diversified basket of basic materials stock holdings. They are investment structures that are traded on stock exchanges, similar to equities. They’re also similar to mutual funds in that they hold securities of many companies.

3 Reasons to Invest in Materials ETFs:

  • ETFs offer lower fees when compared to other investment funds and vehicles, such as mutual funds.
  • They provide diversification in the basket of materials stock holdings in the ETF, which lowers portfolio market risk.
  • It’s easy to gain exposure to many materials stocks with just one vehicle (ETF).

Whereas, if you’re interested in investing in individual basic materials stocks, check out the tables below.
