VLUE Fund Description

The iShares Edge MSCI USA Value Factor ETF tracks an index of large- and midcap US equities. Stocks are selected and weighted using fundamental metrics (earnings, revenue, book value and cash earnings), aiming for exposure to undervalued stocks in each sector.

VLUE FactSet Analytics Insight

As its name implies, VLUE seeks value-stockslooks for value stocks within each sector in the US large- and midcap equity space. iShares changed the index under VLUE on September 1, 2015, arguably sharpening the ETF's value focus. The new index uses value factors for stock selection, which is hardly original, but VLUE's new index does something else too: it looks for value stocks within each sector, taking into account that P/B for a typical tech stock may be much higher than that of a financial stock. (Forward P/E and EV/CFO are the other factors.) However, major sector biases that might have otherwise been produced are mitigated by its sector-relative approach. The added value exposure has also led to higher risk overall for the fund. Trading volume is solid, and retail traders will find modest average spreads, while the underlying basket boasts sufficient liquidity for institutional investors. VLUE charges a low fee and its tracking is nicely in line with its expense ratio.
