This ETF is one of several dividend-weighted products from WisdomTree, part of a suite of products that uses fundamental factors as a means of allocating exposure and avoiding the potential pitfalls of market cap-weighting strategies. This product is unique in that it removes the financial sector from the underlying portfolio; because financial stocks often pay attractive dividend yields, this sector generally has a meaningful allocation in any dividend-weighted product. For investors looking to steer clear of financial stocks, DTN can be an effective way to access large and mid cap U.S. stocks without the risks associated with big banks and other financial institutions. As such, DTN has the potential to be used as a component of a long-term portfolio, or as a shorter-term tactical tool for shifting exposure away from from financials while enhancing the current returns generated by the equity portion of a portfolio.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DTN on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Large Cap Value Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
