13 New Commodity ETNs

NEW YORK ( TheStreet Ratings) - Month after month the list of exchange-traded notes continues to grow. Each narrow sub-category of investment classification is a candidate for its own tradable security.

To qualify for a risk-adjusted return ranking with TheStreet Ratings, new exchange-traded funds or notes must trade for a full year. 209 new exchange-traded funds & notes with less than one year of history are slated to be added to our universe of rated funds over the next 12 months.

The following iPath exchange-traded notes are New York Stock Exchange listed securities that are available for purchase and sale throughout the secondary market's trading day. Like ETFs, they can be sold short. These securities differ from exchange-traded funds in that they are senior, unsecured, unsubordinated debt securities of Barclays Bank PLC (BCS) that have returns tied to benchmark indexes. This adds an issuer risk not present with exchange-traded funds.

13 new notes from Barclays Bank PLC covering new pure-plays on commodities that launched in April turned in their first full calendar month of trading. All the securities below began trading on April 20, 2011.

iPath Pure Beta Aluminum ETN (FOIL) generates returns linked to the Barclays Capital Aluminum Pure Beta TR Index (the "Index"). The Index is intended to reflect the returns that are potentially available through an unleveraged investment in the futures contracts in the Aluminum markets. In May, the fund lost 2.4%.

iPath Pure Beta Cotton ETN (CTNN) generates returns linked to the Barclays Capital Cotton Pure Beta TR Index (the "Index"). The Index is intended to reflect the returns that are potentially available through an unleveraged investment in the futures contracts in the Cotton markets. In May, the fund gained 12.9%.

iPath Pure Beta Crude Oil ETN (OLEM) generates returns linked to the Barclays Capital WTI Crude Oil Pure Beta TR Index (the "Index"). The Index is intended to reflect the returns that are potentially available through an unleveraged investment in the futures contracts in the Crude Oil markets. In May, the fund gained 1.8%.

iPath Pure Beta Energy ETN (ONG) generates returns linked to the Barclays Capital Commodity Index Energy Pure Beta TR and reflects the returns that are potentially available through an unleveraged investment in six futures contracts on energy commodities traded on U.S. exchanges. In May, the fund gained 4.5%.
