This ETF is one of several options offering exposure to the U.S. industrials sector, offering a way to access a corner of the U.S. economy that includes transportation firms, providers of commercial and professional services, and manufacturers of capital goods. However, unlike most of the other products in this space, PSCI focuses exclusively on small cap securities giving the fund a tilt towards high risks but also higher rewards as well. Given the sector-specific focus, PSCI doesn't deserve a core allocation, but may be useful as a means of implementing a tactical tilt towards the industrials sector or as part of a sector rotation strategy. Additionally, despite its focus on small caps, the fund's fees are pretty comparable to others in the category, although they are a few basis points more than most other products. Lastly, while large cap funds are heavy in companies such as GE or UTX, this fund largely consists of products that are pretty much non-existent in other portfolios. As a result, the fund could offer investors a way to capture all of the securities in the market segment at a low cost without the very real risk of doubling-down on some of the largest names in the space.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for PSCI on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
