Analyst Report

This ETF offers investors a way to target a group of European equities that exhibit high dividend yields, screening the universe of potential components by various dividend-related metrics. As such, while FDD is probably too narrow and too targeted for most long-term portfolios, but it can be a useful tool for investors looking to enhance current returns from their equity allocations or implement a value tilt in the European equity portion of their portfolios. Not surprisingly, FDD has a heavy tilt towards large cap stocks, though a significant allocation to mid caps is present as well. Though FDD is inherently concentrated due to the fixed number of index components, this fund spreads exposure across the portfolio in a relatively even manner. It's worth taking a closer look at the country breakdown, as FDD has been known to make big weightings to a small handful of European economies. Those seeking broader European exposure would be better served by ETFs such as VGK or IEV, though neither of these options is likely to come close to FDD's dividend yield.
