DGS Factset Analytics Insight

DGS holds companies in emerging markets that have paid dividends over the past calendar year and weights them based on the size of dividends they paid. Its portfolio tilts to the larger side and makes some big country bets (especially on Taiwan and Brazil). It's also a fairly concentrated fund, with far fewer companies held in its portfolio than comprise our benchmark, though sector exposures tend to be roughly market-like. It trades decently, although its spreads can vary by quite a bit, and underlying liquidity is solid for block traders. Its fees are about in-line with the cheap side of the international small-cap space, and even has the potential to get some of those costs back via securities lending, but tracking can lag overall. The fund will likely always have odd country weightings and tilt large, but it offers enough diversity, liquidity, and Efficiency to be on our Opportunities List.
