FactSet's Analytical Report

Invesco Solar ETF provides exposure to renewable energy sector. The Fund is focused on the firms specializing in solar power. This way, the ETF cuts out a considerable part of a broad clean energy market. Invesco concentrates on pure plays whose revenue is mostly earned from solar energy, thus underweighting the more diversified firms. As a result, the Fund's portfolio is characterized by great concentration and consists of a small amounts of companies. The ETF focuses on USA-based and Chinese firms, allocating most of its finances in small-cap companies. In spite of considerable spreads, the liquidity is quite adequate. But there is a lack of secondary liquidity, and the creation/redemption process can lead to price fluctuation. The fee charged is rather high although the solar-stock short-interest strength mostly allows the Fund to lend the stocks out and get sufficient earnings for paying the fee back a few times. However, the income from securities lending is quite changeable.
