This ETF is one of several ETFs available that offers exposure to mid cap U.S. stocks, an asset class that can make up a significant portion of long-term, buy-and-hold portfolios. As such, this ETF may be more appealing to those in the portfolio construction process as opposed to short term traders. Mid cap stocks are appealing to many because they still have significant growth potential but they are less risky than their small and micro cap brethren. FNX offers exposure to a balanced portfolio of stocks, including close to 300 individual names and spreading exposure relatively evenly. The expense ratio is much higher than many of the other products in the category but that is thanks to the fund's methodology which attempts to screen out some of the worst companies in the index, potentially adding to the overall return. For those seeking other, cheaper choices, there are cap-weighted choices such as MDY and IJH, the ultra-cheap FMU, and equal-weighted EWRM.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for FNX 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 Mid Cap Blend Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
