FXDFirst Trust Consumer Discretionary AlphaDEX Fund
FXD Fund Description
FXD tracks an index of large- and midcap US consumer discretionary stocks. The underlying index uses multi-factor selection and tiered equal-weighting.
FXD Factset Analytics Insight
FXD aims to outperform rather than match the US consumer discretionary sector. It uses value and growth screens to select outperforming stocks in the Russell 1000, and weights these stocks equally in tiers. The fund's methodology produces significant differences from market-like sector exposure. In fact, the fund has huge midcap exposure and significant industry tilts. This makes sense given that FXD seeks higher returns. The fund might appeal to those who favor quasi-active selection, but it is less useful for pure-play sector exposure. The index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
