Analyst Report

PXLV is one of several ETFs that offers exposure to large cap value equities, a corner of the U.S. stock market that includes countless well known firms and receives a hefty allocation in many portfolios. As such, PXLV has a number of potential uses; this fund could potentially be appealing to investors building a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio or might also be useful for those looking to establish a shorter-term tactical tilt towards this asset sub-class. PXLV is unique from many of the ETFs in the Large Cap Value ETFdb Category because of the methodology employed by the subject index. This ETF is part of the suite of RAFI ETFs from PowerShares, and seeks to replicate an index that uses multiple fundamental factors in order to determine both which stocks should be included in the benchmark and the weightings afforded to each. This approach to indexing has the effect of removing the link between stock prices and the allocation afforded to individual securities, one of the most widely cited drawbacks of cap-weighted indexes (those indexes have the tendency to overweight overvalued stocks and underweight undervalued ones). In return for exposure to this RAFI methodology, investors can expect to pay a bit more; PXLV has an expense ratio that is a bit higher than other competitors in the Large Cap Value ETFdb Category. For those who are convinced that the RAFI methodology is capable of generating excess returns over the long run, this fund might be the preferred means of establishing exposure to large cap value stocks. But keep in mind that outperformance is by no means guaranteed, and that the higher expenses charged set an "alpha hurdle" that must be consistently cleared. Those who prefer to minimize fees and simply own the market might look elsewhere; VTV and IWD are among the most popular alternatives (SCHV may appeal to the cost conscious crowd).
