Analyst Report

This ETF is one of several within the Utilities ETFdb Category that offers targeted exposure to this sector of the U.S. economy. Because utilities have historically shown low volatility and high dividend yields, this asset class might be appealing for those seeking low beta equity exposure or looking to beef up the current returns generated by the equity side of a portfolio. Given the sector-specific focus, this ETF might be more appealing to those with a specific outlook on utilities, as opposed to those looking to build a longer-term, buy-and-hold portfolio. PSCU is unique because this fund focuses on small cap stocks; most utilities ETFs are dominated by positions in large cap names (and mid caps to a lesser extent). While large cap and small cap utilities will be impacted by many of the same price drivers, these asset classes often show very unique risk/return profiles. Small caps will generally offer greater potential for capital appreciation, but may experience greater volatility as well. Investors looking for large cap utilities exposure have a number of options available, including XLU, VPU, and the equal-weighted RYU. It should also be noted that this small cap ETF includes some telecom stocks, as these equities generally exhibit similar returns and volatility as utilities (many technology sector ETFs include telecom stocks under that umbrella).
