OIH - VanEck Vectors Oil Services ETF

OIH had a makeover in late 2011 as the old 'Oil HOLDRS' was taken over by Van Eck and turned into a living, breathing ETF, with new management, and a simple strategy aimed at capturing the 25 largest and most liquid US-listed oil services companies. Although a fraction of its portfolio is focused overseas, OIH overweights the US and makes its own sector bets. Overall, the OIH offers extremely concentrated exposure with a strong bias to US-firms. The index is rebalanced semi-annually.

The fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the fund's benchmark index. The index includes common stocks and depositary receipts of U.S. exchange-listed companies in the oil services segment. Such companies may include small- and medium-capitalization companies and foreign companies that are listed on a U.S. exchange. The fund is non-diversified.
