DEF Fund Description

The Guggenheim Defensive Equity ETF tracks an index that aims to outperform in down markets while maintaining upside potential. The equal-weighted index picks 100 US stocks using proprietary methods.

DEF FactSet Analytics Insight

DEF does defense in a different way. TypicallyThe fund is equal-weighted defensive stock portfolios base their methods on a fund’s beta, but DEF starts with the S&P 500, calculates each constituent’s probability of maintaining revenues that support its current stock price, and keeps the top 80%. After that, the remaining stocks are then ranked by beta, eliminating the top 25%. Next, down-market volatility is tested, keeping the half of the stocks that score the lowest. Finally, the initial metric of probability of supporting the current stock price is revisited, where the fund selects the 100 stocks with the highest probability. The fund is equal-weighted.

Note: On October 24, 2016, DEF changed its index from the Sabrient Defensive Euity Index to the current index.
