This ETF offers targeted exposure toward the U.S. consumer discretionary sector, making it a potentially useful tool for those employing a sector rotation strategy or for investors looking to tilt their portfolio towards a high beta sector that can perform well in bull markets. PEZ is one of the "Dynamic" ETFs offered by PowerShares, meaning that the underlying index utilizes a quant based analytical framework to select holdings. In exchange for this attempt to generate alpha, investors can expect to pay a bit more; PEZ is more expensive than FCL and XLY. For those who believe the Intellidex methodology has the ability to add value, PEZ might be an interesting play. But considering the less-than-impressive track record and expense differential, there are probably better ETF options for exposure to this sector.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for PEZ 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 Consumer Discretionary Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
