This ETF offers exposure to the large cap U.S. equity market, making it one of many options available for accessing an asset class that is a major component of many portfolios. EZY should be viewed as an alternative to funds like SPY and IVV, as this ETF offers exposure to a generally similar group of securities but features nuances that result in a unique risk/return profile. Most notable is the weighting methodology; the underlying index uses positive cumulative earnings over the past four fiscal quarters as well as WisdomTree's market capitalization and liquidity standards in order to weight securities. As such, EZY may feature a value tilt and biases towards/away from certain sector of the U.S. economy. This methodology may appealing because it shifts exposure towards those that are actually producing earnings, potentially shielding against risks and avoiding the drawbacks of simple market cap weighting. EZY is slightly more expensive than some of the cap-weighted ETF options out there, but those who believe the unique methodology will consistently add alpha may be happy to pay a few extra basis points in fees.
