SPHD Fund Description

The PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend Low Volatility ETF tracks a dividend-yield-weighted index comprising the 50 least volatile names chosen from a shortlist of the S&P 500's 75 highest-dividend-yielding securities.

SPHD Factset Analytics Insight

SPHD cherry-picks the market rather than delivering the whole basket. It chooses the 50 least volatile, highest-yielding S&P 500 stocks, so its looks little like the broad large-cap market. It heavily overweights traditionally defensive industries like utilities and basic materials and, unsurprisingly, underweights the more volatile technology and consumer cyclical companies. It tilts small and generally succeeds at delivering an attractive yield at reduced risk. SPHD trades briskly with miniscule spreads, while larger investors will find excellent underlying liquidity for block trades. While its expense ratio is a bit steep for a large-cap ETF, SPHD compares more favorably to other dividend-seeking funds, and tracking is pretty tight.
