FYTFirst Trust Small Cap Value AlphaDEX Fund
FYT Fund Description
FYT tracks an index of securities pulled from the NASDAQ US 700 Small Cap Index that are rescreened and weighted based on a tiered process.
FYT Factset Analytics Insight
FYT tracks an index which implements its proprietary AlphaDEX selection methodology to select small-cap value stocks. The index starts by removing stocks from the NASDAQ US 700 Small Cap Index which do not trade on an eligible exchange, duplicate stocks, and do not meet liquidity screens. Then, all remaining securities are grouped into either “growth” or “value” buckets. Only those in the “value” buckets are eligible for inclusion. Those eligible are then scored individually and the top 262 stocks are selected for inclusion in the index. The selected stocks are then split into quintiles based on their selection score, with higher scoring quintiles receiving a greater weight in the Index. The stocks are equally-weighted within each quintile. The index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
