acks.local/funds/etf/FBT/profile?q=BBH">BBH-Free Report)

This ETF tracks the Market Vectors US Listed Biotech 25 Index, a benchmark of 25 companies in the biotech sector. The fund charges a reasonable 35 basis point fee per year, and sees decent volume on assets of about $300 million (see Two Sector ETFs to Buy in 2013).

The ETF is heavily focused on large caps and growth stocks, as more than two-thirds of the portfolio falls in the large cap category, while about 80% is classified as growth. With this focus, it shouldn't be too surprising to note that the ETF doesn't really pay anything in yield, and that it isn't an income choice for investors.

In terms of holdings, large biotech firms take the top three spots and account for about 36% of assets, suggesting a relatively heavy level of concentration. Six other companies make up over 4% though, so there is a decent amount of diversification.

From a performance perspective, the ETF has been extremely solid, adding about 30% over the past six months. The fund is also up 55% from a one year look, thoroughly crushing similar funds and the broad market in the time frame.

iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (Nasdaq: IBB-Free Report)

This fund follows the NASDAQ Biotechnology Index, a benchmark of about 120 companies involved in biomedical research. The ETF charges 48 basis points a year in fees, and sees great volume on assets of just over $3 billion.

Growth stocks are once again a big part of this fund accounting for about 80% of the total. Ho
