This ETF offers exposure to one of the most widely followed indexes in the world, but with a unique twist that makes the exposure offered very different from many other products linked to the NASDAQ. The NASDAQ is an index consisting of blue chip U.S. stocks, with a significant tilt towards the technology sector (tech stocks account for more than half of the underlying index). QQQE will consist of the same stocks as QQQ, one of the most popular ETFs out there. But the two products are far from identical as a result of the weighting methodologies employed; QQQ is a modified cap weighted ETF, while QQQE assigns an equal allocation to each of the approximately 100 components. The result is that the QQQE portfolio is much more balanced, whereas QQQ tends to be top heavy and dominated by a small handful of tech giants. For investors who believe that equal weighting represents a superior way to access stocks, QQQE might be a preferred way to tap into the tech-heavy NASDAQ.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for QQQE on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Large Cap Growth Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
