Analyst Report

This ETF focuses on small cap value stocks, making it one of several options available for investors looking to achieve targeted access to a corner of the domestic equity market that is generally represented in almost every long-term portfolio. Small cap value stocks may maintain a unique risk profile and return potential compared to larger companies or growth stocks, making PXSV useful for those looking to establish a tactical tilt towards this corner of the domestic market. This ETF may also be useful for those building a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio, since small cap U.S. stocks are often a core holding in such strategies. There are several other ETF options for investors seeking exposure to small cap value stocks, a group that generally exhibits low pricing multiples and high dividend yields. PXSV distinguishes itself from others in the ETFs in the Small Cap Value ETFdb Category by the methodology used by the underlying index. This ETF is part of the suite of RAFI ETFs from PowerShares, a lineup of products that seek to replicate fundamental-weighted benchmarks that use various fundamental metrics (such as dividends and cash flow) to determine component stocks and the weightings assigned. The holdings of PXSV will generally overlap with other ETFs designed to deliver access to small cap value stocks, but the risk profile and return potential can be very different across weighting methodologies. The RAFI approach to indexing breaks the link between stock price (and therefore market cap) and the weighting assigned to a stock in the benchmark, a feature that many cite as a troubling inefficiency of market cap-weighted products (these benchmarks tend to overweight overvalued stocks and underweight undervalued stocks). The RAFI methodology may cost a bit more than other options for small cap exposure; PXSV is more expensive in terms of bottom line ER than other options in the Small Cap Value ETFdb Category (though it's well within the range of the ETFdb Category). For those who believe that the RAFI approach is a superior way to access U.S. equity market, this fund might be appealing to those looking to overweight small cap value stocks. If the unique weighting strategy creates excess returns over the long run, the additional fees may be justified and PXSV may contribute to relatively impressive returns. Of course, outperformance is by no means guaranteed; investors considering this ETF will want to take a look at the historical returns and volatility relative to similar ETFs. Those who prefer to keep a lid on fees and simply own the market might prefer cost efficient choices such as VBR and IWN.
