FAB Fund Description

The First Trust Multi Cap Value AlphaDex Fund tracks an index that uses fundamental factors to select and weight value stocks from the S&P 1500 Value Index.

FAB Factset Analytics Insight

FAB aims to outperform the broad-based S&P Composite 1500 Value Index. Its index uses a quantitative methodology that selects and weights securities within the S&P Value Index using three value factors (P/B, ROA, and P/FCF). The idea is to produce an outperforming, value focused portfolio. The resulting portfolio exhibits a value bias relative to our value benchmark, carrying lower P/E and P/B ratios. Still, it has not generated additional yield, as FAB actually carries a lower dividend yield than our benchmark. FAB makes huge sector bets and carries a drastic small tilt, two distinctions that may make the fund a poor Fit for more conservative investors. This higher risk portfolio comes with a huge price tag.Note: On April 8, 2016 the fund switched underlying indexes from the old “Defined” index to the current Nasdaq version. The index universe may differ slightly but the factors and methodology are the same.
