SMDV Fund Description

SMDV tracks an index of US small-cap stocks with a 10-year record of increasing dividends. Stocks are equally weighted.

SMDV Factset Analytics Insight

Newly launched SMDV aims for strong total returns via a concentrated basket of small-cap stocks, each with a long history of increasing dividends. The investment thesis: small firms with a proven record of increasing dividends deliver stable growth. That the fund culls only about 50 names from a broad 2,000-stock universe indicates how few firms make the cut. SMDV’s holdings are equally weighted, which will likely further distance its exposure from that of the Russell 2000 (and our neutral small-cap benchmark). The fund competes most directly with WisdomTree’s DGRS, but SMDV strictly holds firms with growing dividends, while DGRS holds dividend-paying firms with quality and growth traits. In all, SMDV targets a narrow slice of the small-cap market—currently with a huge bias toward utilities—rather than broad coverage of the entire small-cap space. Liquidity is weak, so trade with care.
