10 Commodity ETFs With Monster Inflows in 2012


GLD, SLV, and UNG make the list.


  • 2012 Inflows: $218
  • Total Assets: $567 million
  • Expense Ratio: 0.50%
  • YTD Performance: -8.1%
Despite being half the size of the utra-popular USO, this fund was able to edge out its larger counterpart. Whereas USO tracks front-month futures, DBO uses a rules-based methodology that looks to mitigate the impact of contango during its monthly roll.

9. United States Oil Fund (NYSEARCA:USO)
  • 2012 Inflows: $174
  • Total Assets: $1.3 billion
  • Expense Ratio: 0.45%
  • YTD Performance: -9.5%
By far the most popular oil fund, USO's front-month strategy drags behind that of DBO, which may be the reason for the inflow gap. For the most part, USO is a trading instrument and it shows from its average daily volume of nearly 8.8 million.

10. Ultra Silver (NYSEARCA:AGQ)
  • 2012 Inflows: $165 million
  • Total Assets: $959 million
  • Expense Ratio: 0.95%
  • YTD Performance: -9.5%
A great inflow for a leveraged product, as a massive return of 94% in the trailing three years helped guide investors into AGQ. Its overall asset base has grown by more than 20% thus far in 2012 and will only continue to surge for as long as silver can maintain its strong bull run
