Analyst Report

This ETF is one of many options available to investors seeking exposure to large cap U.S. equities, an asset class that is a core component of most long-term portfolios. DLN is unique thanks to the methodology employed by the underlying index, a fundamentally-weighted benchmark that uses cash dividends to determine components and individual security allocations. As such, DLN may be appealing to those looking to maximize current returns from the equity portion of their portfolios, or simply to those looking to avoid the potential pitfalls of market capitalization weighting. The underlying portfolio is balanced across hundreds of large cap stocks, with the dividend-related methodology resulting in a bias towards certain sectors that have historically made significant distributions (though DLN does a nice job of including all corners of the U.S. economy). On an individual security level, a few stocks make up meaningful chunks of the portfolio, though concentrate is not too extreme. DLN is more expensive than some of the cheapest large cap equity ETFs, though still very efficient from a cost perspective. Those who believe the dividend-weighted methodology is a preferred means of establishing and maintaining stock exposure likely won't hesitate to pay a few extra basis points in fees.
