Analyst Report

This interesting product from First Trust, offers investors broad based equity exposure to a group of (generally) mid and small cap firms. However, the main difference between FVL and a number of other mid and small cap focused products is that its index is developed in concert with Value Line, an investment research company that is known for its stock selection process. The underlying benchmark in this fund takes Value Line's proprietary methodology and selects 100 securities that have received Value Line's top grade for the company's Timeliness Ranking System. This method has performed well when compared against fellow mid cap funds such as IJH, outperforming over longer time horizons. However, FVL does have a significantly higher expense ratio than many of these counterparts so cost-conscious investors may want to avoid this fund unless they really believe in the Value Line system and its ability to consistently generate alpha over the long haul.
