FVD Fund Description

The First Trust Value Line Dividend ETF tracks an equal-weighted index of dividend-paying companies. The index excludes companies with less than $1 billion in market cap.

FVD Factset Analytics Insight

FVD seeks to deliver better-than-average dividend yields via an equal-weighted portfolio of dividend-paying stocks. It builds this portfolio in two steps: first, it uses Value Line's proprietary 'safety rating' system to select low-beta stocks from companies with strong balance sheets, and then it chooses the stocks with above-average yields and weights them equally. FVD makes some big sector bets along the way, and its equal-weighted approach results in a pronounced midcap tilt compared to our high-yield benchmark. FVD may carry slightly lower risk compared to our benchmark, but it doesn't necessarily succeed in delivering equal or better yields. On-screen liquidity is decent and spreads manageable, while underlying liquidity is strong and creation costs are low. FVD does, however, charge a steep fee for a fairly simple methodology, and its tracking can be variable.
