Analyst Report

PXSG offers exposure to small cap U.S. stocks exhibiting strong growth characteristics, such as low dividend yields and high pricing multiples. This ETF is one of several that provides access to this corner of the U.S. stock market, an asset class that may offer relatively high volatility and potential for capital appreciation. Given the nature of the exposure offered, PXSG could be potentially appealing to a wide variety of investors. This ETF could be used as a core holding within a long-term portfolio, or as part of a shorter-term tactical tilt towards high beta stocks or generally risky assets. There are several other ETFs that offer exposure to small cap growth stocks; PXSG sets itself apart from the rest of the Small Cap Growth ETFdb Category due to the methodology used by the underlying index. This ETF is part of the suite of RAFI ETFs offered by PowerShares; these products seek to replicate the performance of fundamentals-weighted benchmarks that use multiple fundamental factors (such as cash flow and sales) to determine holdings and the weighting assigned to each component stock. The portfolio of PXSG will likely feature considerable overlap with other ETFs designed to deliver access to small cap growth companies, but the returns and risk can be quite different across various weighting methodologies. The RAFI approach to indexing breaks the link between stock price (i.e., market cap) and the index weighting given to the stock, a feature that is held out as an inefficiency of market cap-weighted products (these benchmarks tend to overweight overvalued stocks and underweight undervalued stocks). The RAFI approach is slightly more expensive to implement; PXSG has a higher bottom line expense ratio than other options in the Small Cap Growth ETFdb Category (though it falls well within the range of these peers). If you're convinced that the RAFI approach offers better, more efficient access to U.S. equity markets, this ETF could be appealing as a way to bet on small cap growth companies. If the RAFI methodology is able to generate 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 a position in this ETF may want to analyze 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 IWO or VBK; those cap-weighted products are among the most cost efficient alternatives.
