Analyst Report

This ETF utilizes the AlphaDEX strategy to invest in emerging market small caps. This methodology involves a quantitative screening methodology designed to identify the stocks from a specific universe that have the greatest potential for capital appreciation. Specifically, stocks from the eligible universe are ranked on growth factors such as recent price appreciation, sales-to-price ratio, and one year sales growth, and separately on value factors such as book value to price ratio, cash flow to price ratio, and return on assets. Stocks with the highest scores are included in the benchmark, and the highest weightings are afforded larger weightings. For those looking to make a play on small cap equities, FEMS certainly makes for a viable option. The fund has nearly 200 holdings, but allocates over 25% of its assets to Taiwan; an economy that most believe is already fully developed. This may dilute the emerging market exposure and lead to undesirable results. Beyond that, the fund has a sound strategy and can be used as a part of a bigger emerging market strategy, but the fund is not deep enough to be your core holding for exposure to developing economies.
