This ETF focuses in on companies that have bought back large numbers of shares in the past year. In order to be included, a company must have repurchased at least 5% of its outstanding shares in the past twelve months. PowerShares believes that this system could lead to outperformance as a lower number of shares outstanding will increase the EPS. While not appropriate for all investors, PKW could be a decent satellite holding for those who believe in the power of share buybacks and their impact on EPS and stock price.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for PKW on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
