Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to one of the world's most widely-followed equity benchmarks, but with a twist; weighting each of the component securities equally. While QQQ is well known among investors, this ETF has some appeal to those constructing a long-term, balanced portfolio as its equal-weighting methodology mitigates some of the impact from the heavy tech weighting. However, the sheer number of tech companies in the Nasdaq ensures that even with this equal-weighting, the fund is heavily dependent on technology names. QQEW should be used by more long-term investors while traders should seek out the more liquid QQQ instead. QQQ has penny-wide spreads and can be a nice tool for those looking to quickly establish a position in U.S. equity markets. But investors building a retirement portfolio or maintaining a longer-term objective would be better served by looking at this often forgotten fund from First Trust instead if they are dead-set on obtaining broad exposure to the Nasdaq-100.
