FTXL Fund Description

FTXL tracks the most liquid US semiconductor companies, weighted according to factors related to value, volatility and growth.

FTXL Factset Analytics Insight

The First Trust NASDAQ Semiconductor ETF tracks an index of highly liquid semiconductor stocks weighted according to various factors. While many funds perform a basic liquidity screen as part of their index construction and rebalancing, FTXL is noteworthy because it goes beyond the basic screen and uses liquidity selection. The 30 most liquid semiconductor stocks in the U.S are chosen for inclusion in the index as determined by the average daily traded volume over three months. The securities are then ranked and weighed according to value, volatility, and growth factors. Value is measured using a cash flow to price metric. The trailing one- year volatility provides another factor. Growth is considered using the average of the three- month, six- month, nine- month, and twelve- month price return. FTXL charges higher fees than other semiconductor funds, but is not the most expensive in the segment.

First Trust Nasdaq Semiconductor ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 5.11 out of 10.
