CSM Fund Description

The ProShares Large Cap Core Plus ETF tracks a long/short index of the 500 largest US stocks. It uses a set of rules to assign weights to each equity that add up to 130% long and 30% short exposure.

CSM Factset Analytics Insight

CSM differs substantially from its large-cap segment peers by including short equity exposure. It ranks each stock based on the a quantitative 10-factor model, which looks at a stock's traditional and relative value, historical and expected growth, momentum and size. It then assigns weights that add up to 130% long and 30% short positions that sum to 100% market exposure. The end result is a broad fund with roughly marketlike risk and a significant mid-cap tilt. Regarding sector biases and other holding analysis we show here, take them with a grain of salt as swaps and short positions distort these values. CSM trades in decent volumes, but spreads tend to be significant, making limit orders advisable for retail traders. Underlying liquidity is very good, and investors looking to deal in size should be able to get good execution. CSM charges a middling fee for its segment, and tracking is decent, but hardly airtight, so holding cost can be a bit higher than advertised.
