In this episode of ETF Spotlight, I speak with William Rhind, CEO at GraniteShares, about inflation, commodities, dividend funds and single stock ETFs.

Commodities were very hot earlier this year, thanks mainly to inflation concerns. Investors have become cautious on the asset class lately as their worries have shifted from inflation to economic growth slowdown.

The GraniteShares Bloomberg Commodity Broad Strategy No K1 ETF (COMB - Free Report) is down significantly from its record high in June but still up about 18% year-to-date.  The actively managed fund holds futures contracts on popular commodities like energy, grains, precious metals. Have we seen the peak in energy and food prices?

Gold is almost unchanged this year, significantly outperforming stocks and bonds. While gold also acts as an inflation hedge, it usually moves inversely to the US dollar. Further, rising rates dim the appeal of gold as it yields no income. The GraniteShares Gold Trust (BAR - Free Report) is a physically backed gold ETF.

Dividend and high-income strategies are very popular with investors this year. The GraniteShares HIPS US High Income ETF (HIPS - Free Report) provides exposure to highest yielding securities across alternative income categories like MLPs, REITs, BDCs and Closed-end funds.

GraniteShares Europe offers  77 single-stock ETPs that provide leveraged long and short daily exposure to popular stocks including Alphabet (GOOGL - Free Report) , Tesla (TSLA - Free Report) , NVIDIA (NVDA - Free Report) . The firm is expected to launch some single-stock products in the US soon.
