FYC Fund Description

FYC tracks a quant-driven index that select stocks from a small-cap growth universe in an attempt to outperform the market.

FYC Factset Analytics Insight

FYC aims to beat the market, but high all-in costs raise the bar for outperformance. It tracks an index that uses a variety of quantitative screens (including momentum, price-to-sales, and sales growth) to select and weight securities that it believes will outperform. FYC applies these screens to pull stocks from the Nasdaq US 700 Small Cap Growth Index. The resulting portfolio tilts smaller than our small-cap/growth benchmark, with significant sector tilts and higher risk overall. For better or worse, FYC delivers some of the 'purest' small-cap exposure in the space, with a very low weighted average market cap. Liquidity is adequate and spreads tend to be manageable, while larger investors should have no trouble with block trades. Our greatest concern with FYC is its extremely high fee and even higher holding costs due to loose tracking. Note: The fund switched indexes on April 8, 2016. The selection universe differs (holdings were previously chosen from the S&P SmallCap 600 Index) but the screening methodology is unchanged.
