FDM Factset Analytics Insight

FDM calls itself a micro-cap fund, and for the most part it is, but the fund leans hard toward the small-cap space. FDM's underlying index also screens for financial strength, looking at metrics like trailing P/E and P/B. Sector biases result; toward industrials and away from health care. FDM isn't cheap to own or trade, but neither are most peer funds.
