9 Newly Rated ETFs For Your Portfolio

NEW YORK ( TheStreet Ratings) -- TheStreet.com Ratings initiated coverage of 21 exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, that accrued a sufficient track record of risk and performance data by the end of January 2012. Only one of the 21 newly rated exchange-traded funds start out in the 'Buy' range. Eight begin at 'Hold' while 12 earned initial grades in the 'Sell' range.

The one newly rated fund that opened for business January 2011 received our lowest possible 'Buy' rating of B-, or good. The exchange-traded fund, Schwab US REIT ETF (SCHH), returned 15.7% in the last year, beating all other newly rated ETFs on a risk-adjusted return basis.

The Schwab US REIT ETF seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Dow Jones U.S. Select REIT Index by investing in stocks that are included in the index on a narrow expense ratio of just 0.13%. Top holdings include Simon Property Group (SPG - Get Report), Public Storage (PSA - Get Report), and Equity Residential (EQR - Get Report).
