FXL Fund Description

FXL tracks a tiered equal-weighted index of U.S. technology firms.

FXL Factset Analytics Insight

FXL attempts to outperform the broad-based US technology market, selecting securities based on their growth and value factors and skewing away from neutral coverage. Its tiered equal-weighting scheme overweights semiconductor companies and underweights larger software and IT services firms. You see this in FXL's average market cap, which is much smaller than our benchmark's. Despite FXL's complex methodology, the fund does not reliably outperform the market and often lags it. A fairly liquid fund, FXL trades in decent volume at reasonable spreads. Larger investors should see even better liquidity. FXL is expensive to hold, however, charging a very high fee for its segment, though it does track its index well.

FXL MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

First Trust Technology AlphaDEX Fund has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 4.95 out of 10.

Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
