This weeks ETF Talk focuses on an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that sets itself apart from the pack as a biotech offering thats just a bit different from anything else on the market. Biotech is a very hot and interesting sector, and it has become known in recent years for its potential for powerful growth. This fund, BioShares Biotechnology Products ETF (Nasdaq:BBP), features more established biotech companies that have much of their early-stage clinical trial failure risk behind them.
