First Trust Value Line 100 ETF
*Unless otherwise stated, data provided by FactSet.

FVL Fund Description

FVL tracks an equally weighted index of 100 U.S. stocks selected by proprietary price and earnings screens.

FVL Factset Analytics Insight

FVL's index uses fundamental metrics to pick 100 stocks expected to outperform over the next 6 to 12 months. The index applies four screens to a universe of 1,700 stocks: earnings growth, long-term earnings growth relative to recent price, recent earnings and earnings surprises. Selected stocks receive equal weight. The resulting portfolio loads up on consumer cyclicals at the expense of financials. The fund also favors small- and midcaps. FVL's bias toward small firms drives up market risk, and hurt performance in late 2014. All-in costs are high due to a sizeable fee, poor tracking and sub-par liquidity.
