Analyst Report

This ETF tracks an index consisting of some of America's largest companies. As a result, investors should think of this as a play on mega and large cap stocks in the American market. These securities are usually known as 'Blue Chips' and are some of the most famous and profitable companies in the country, including well known names such as ExxonMobil, Apple, IBM, and GE. The fund is probably one of the safest in the equity world as the companies on this list are very unlikely to go under unless there is an apocalyptic event in the economy. However, these securities are unlikely to grow very much either as they are already pretty large and have probably seen their quickest growing days in years past, but most do pay out solid dividends which should help to ease the pain of this realization. Thanks to this, the fund could be a better choice for those looking for more stability in their portfolio without such big daily moves. Additionally, it should be noted that this fund will likely outperform in a bear market and underperform broad markets in a bull market, making it a way to bet on the economic growth prospects of the country as well. However, the fund does charge a rather high expense ratio so it may not be appropriate for buy and holders, but the cost is far less than other volatility focused funds such as LVOL. For investors seeking lower volatility securities believing the economy to be poised for a bear market, this product could be a quality choice.
