FLAG Fund Description

The FLAG-Forensic Accounting Long-Short ETF tracks an index that selects long and short equity positions of large-cap U.S. companies relative to their earnings quality and revenue recognition practices.

FLAG Factset Analytics Insight

FLAG changed its underlying index after August 7, 2015 from a long-only index to a long-short index. The fund is designed to have a 100% net equity exposure by holding a 30% short position and a 130% long position. The long and short positions are determined by evaluating and scoring the universe of large cap U.S. equities based on six fundamental metrics: cash flow quality, revenue recognition policies, earnings quality, shareholder yield, earnings surprise, and valuation. The fund selects from a pool of the 500 largest U.S. companies by market capitalization, and goes long the high scorers while shorting those that score poorly. The index is reconstituted quarterly. This niche investment methodology comes at a steep price, and Tradability remains weak.
