Analyst Report

PXMG is one of several ETFs that provides access to mid cap growth equities, a corner of the U.S. stock market that may maintain a unique risk/return profile compared to stocks of other sizes and styles. A relatively broad-based fund, PXMG could be potentially appealing to a wide variety of investors. This ETF can be useful as a holding in a long-term portfolio, and can also be used as part of a shorter term strategy that involves a tactical tilt towards mid cap growth stocks. There are several other ETFs that offer exposure to mid cap stocks with growth characteristics--generally higher pricing multiples (along with higher growth potential) and lower dividend yields. PXMG is unique from other ETFs in the Mid Cap Growth ETFdb Category due to the methodology used by the underlying index. This ETF is part of the lineup of RAFI ETFs from PowerShares; these funds seek to replicate fundamental-weighted indexes that use multiple fundamental factors (such as cash flow and sales) to determine component stocks and the weighting assigned to each. The holdings of PXMG will overlap with other ETFs designed to deliver access to mid cap growth companies, but the return generated and the risk experienced can be quite different. The RAFI approach breaks the link between stock price (i.e., market cap) and the weighting given to a stock in the benchmark, a feature that is held out as an inefficiency of market cap-weighted products (these benchmarks tend to overweight overvalued stocks and underweight undervalued ones). In return for exposure to this RAFI-weighting strategy, investors will pay a bit more than some other ETFs offering access to similar portfolios; PXMG is more expensive in terms of bottom line ER than other options in the Mid Cap Growth ETFdb Category, though it falls well within the range of the other products in that ETFdb Category. For those who believe that the RAFI approach offers better, more efficient access to U.S. equity markets, this ETF could be appealing as a way to establish exposure to mid cap growth stocks. If the RAFI methodology generates excess returns over the long run, this ETF could help to boost bottom line portfolio returns. But outperformance is by no means guaranteed; investors considering this fund should take a look at the track record compared to other more widely-followed indexes. Those who prefer to minimize fees and simply own the market are probably better off with an ETF like IWP or VOT; those options are among the most cost efficient alternatives.
