FSTA Fund Description

FSTA tracks a market-cap-weighted index of stocks in the US consumer staples sector.

FSTA Factset Analytics Insight

FSTA offers solid consumer staples exposure for a low fee, and has been successful in attracting investor interest. Like competitor VDC, FSTA tracks an index that uses GICS to define sectors, then selects and weights the stocks by market cap. Its sector weightings are largely consistent with our benchmark, and this approach doesn't seem to have had much impact on the fund's risk, which is marketlike. FSTA sees decent daily trading volume which should be adequate for most retail investors, though its average spread is significant. Larger investors should have no trouble trading in volume, thanks to FSTA's liquid underlying basket. The fund charges one of the lowest fees in the space, but true holding costs are likely to be higher as the fund tends to lag its index by considerably more than its fee.
