EES Fund Description

EES tracks an index of US small-cap stocks weighted by firms' earnings from core operations. The index is a small-cap subset of the WisdomTree Earnings Index.

EES Factset Analytics Insight

EES offers a different take on the US small-cap segment, weighting its holdings according to firms' earnings from core operations. The idea is that weighting stocks by earnings instead of market cap will produce better long-term performance because equity holders ultimately get paid from profits. The fund allocates heavily to micro-caps, but less surprising is the fund's low P/E ratio, which is substantially lower than our benchmark. The preference for smaller firms shows up as slightly higher beta than our benchmark. Otherwise, EES avoids large sector bets, and is well diversified. EES offers decent on-screen liquidity, but it's no match for the segment's most heavily traded funds, and spreads are sizeable at times. Larger investors should be able to trade blocks fairly with the aid of liquidity providers or the issuer. EES can't be called cheap, with a middling expense ratio for the segment, but true holding costs tend to be substantially lower than the fee.
