This ETF offers a way for investors to access large cap U.S. equities that are classified as value stocks, generally maintaining low pricing multiples and higher dividend yields. RPV may seem similar to the more popular and liquid S&P 500 Value Index Fund (IVE), but the methodologies used are actually quite different. RPV maintains a "pure value" focus, holding a relatively small number of firms that demonstrate the most significant value characteristics, while IVE uses a more liberal definition of value stocks and includes several securities that are also found in the growth counterpart. RPV is slightly more expensive, but is a more targeted choice for those investors who are seeking to focus explicitly on value companies. Not surprisingly, RPV exhibits a bias towards certain sector of the U.S. economy, generally tilting exposure towards financial companies and energy firms.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for RPV 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 Value Equities with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
