Analyst Report

VIOV seeks to replicate a benchmark which offers exposure small cap firms that exhibit value characteristics in the U.S. equity market. The investment thesis behind small caps is that these firms are likely to provide strong growth prospects to a portfolio and should have a much easier time growing then their large cap counterparts. However, these securities are extremely volatile and can experience large losses or gains in a very short period of time. Despite their volatility, these products should probably be in every investors’ portfolio as they tend to move somewhat independently of large caps and can be a better ‘pure play’ on the American economy. This particular ETF, since it focuses on value securities, has certain biases in its portfolio holdings and may not offer as much of a cross section as funds such as IWM. However, VIOV does a solid job of dividing up assets as the fund holds more than 400 securities in total and doesn’t give any one security more than 1.0% of the total assets. Thanks to this extreme diversification and VIOV’s ultra cheap price, the fund could make for a quality addition to portfolios of investors who are looking for small cap exposure but are seeking lower risk assets in the space.
