DLS Fund Description

DLS tracks a dividend-weighted index of small-cap companies located in developed countries outside of the US and Canada.

DLS Factset Analytics Insight

DLS pursues an international portfolio of dividend-paying small-caps, weighting them by the cash amount paid. Unsurprisingly, its dividend-based screen and weighting scheme tilt its portfolio away from our neutral benchmark. It excludes Canada, which looms large in our benchmark, and overweights Australia, and sector tilts are a possibility here. The fund trades well, though spreads can get rather wide, and block liquidity is strong, though the small-cap nature of the portfolio means that doing bulk trades could move underlying markets. DLS is reasonably Efficient, though its expense ratio is a little pricey and tracking can vary quite a bit. Still, it's an interesting option for investors looking for access to dividend-paying stocks in the international small-cap space, hence it has a spot on our Opportunities List.
