NFO Fund Description

The PowerShares Insider Sentiment ETF tracks an equal-weighted index of the 100 U.S. stocks selected by publicly available buying trends of corporate insiders, price momentum, and trailing 12-month volatility.

NFO Factset Analytics Insight

NFO chooses 100 equally-weighted US-listed large- and midcap stocks base on trading in company stock by corporate insiders, price momentum, and trailing 12-month volatility. Corporate insiders should know more about their firm than anyone, so the idea is to watch public filings to see when officers and directors buy company shares, then mimic their actions. More specifically, the index looks at the increase in insider holding. The index applies additional technical factors for stock selection to maximize total return. The index has a 20% cap for sector exposure to prevent sector concentration. The fund competes directly with KNOW, another insider play.

NOTE: On 24 Oct 2016, NFO changed its underlying index to the Guggenheim Nasdaq US Insider Sentiment Index from the Sabrient Insider Sentiment Index. The switch produced material changes with respect to capitalization, sector concentration, and volatility.
