Analyst Report

This actively managed ETF seeks to outperform the Russell 3000 Index, a widely followed, broad barometer of the U.S. economy, while maintaining lower volatility than that index. Given that objective, TTFS has the potential to be used as a component of long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio that delivers exposure to a core asset class: U.S. stocks. This fund is unique in the manner in which it selects stocks. The methodology behind TTFS focuses on liquidity and fundamental characteristics that are historically associated with superior long-term performance. In a nutshell, TTFS is built around the idea that stocks perform best when their outstanding shares has declined over the last 120 days. The rationale is that if the same amount of money is chasing a smaller number of shares, the price should increase. This approach assumes that corporate insiders time buybacks based on information that may not be available to the general public. A couple additional elements of TTFS are noteworthy; component stocks are equal weighted, which allows investors to avoid the potential pitfalls of cap weighting methodologies. It should also be noted that relative to the Russell 3000, the TTFS portfolio is quite shallow; only about 100 stocks are included. That isn't necessarily a negative; it means that the portfolio focuses on companies deemed to be the most favorable based on the underlying methodology. But it should be considered for investors seeking broad-based exposure; TTFS may make sense as a complement to a more diversified equity ETF. The biggest potential drawback of TTFS is the hefty management fee; investors seeking exposure to broad-based equities have a number of cheaper alternatives in the All Cap Equities ETFdb Category. For those who believe the underlying methodology is intriguing, TTFS might be worth a closer look, as it offers exposure to an advanced investment strategy in the liquid and efficient ETF wrapper.
