The fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities of companies that are economically tied to the lithium industry. There is a heavy concentration in materials and strong international diversification.

The fund has 5.83% exposure to Tesla, which we’re willing to take on despite our views on the stock being overvalued.

• Price to earnings of the fund is reasonable, at 28.0.
• Average market cap of its holdings is 7.75 billion.
• Management fees are 0.75%

During the most recent fiscal year, the fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 44.90%, meaning that management is relatively active—something you want to look for in an evolving industry. We rate Global X Lithium & Battery Tech ETF a “Buy” under $32.00. The risk level is “Medium-Low.”
