Should shares of homebuilders enter a prolonged run of weakness, XHB would be vulnerable, but the iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF (NYSEArca: ITB) would be even more so.
The $1.6 billion ITB is the purer homebuilders ETF with Dow component Home Depot (NYSE: HD) being the only member of ITB’s top-10 lineup that is not a homebuilder. ITB’s top-10 lineup is 62.6% of the ETF’s weight.
