FDD Fund Description

FDD a tracks a dividend-weighted index of 30 high-dividend-yielding stocks selected from the STOXX Europe 600 Index.

FDD Factset Analytics Insight

FDD offers a concentrated take on the European high-dividend space. The underlying index picks 30 stocks from the STOXX Europe 600 Index, selecting names that have at least five years of steady dividend growth and a dividend payout ratio of 60% or less. The 30 names in the basket are then weighted by dividends paid in the last twelve months, and the portfolio is rebalanced annually. This methodology can result in some surprising under- and overweights, and the fund is a poor fit to our cap-weighted benchmark as a result. Daily trading volume is healthy with tight spreads. Block traders will find liquidity to be more than adequate. However, FDD’s fee is a bit high. The fund takes a unique approach to this market, and for investors who like its approach, the fund should be easy to access.
