GCOW Fund Description

GCOW tracks an index of developed market large cap stocks, selected by free cash flow yield and dividend yield and weighted by aggregate dividends.

GCOW Factset Analytics Insight

GCOW hunts for sustainable high dividend yield from developed market large-cap stocks. The fund, launched in February 2016, aims for sustainability by first screening out stocks with negative free cash flow or earnings. REITS are excluded as well. It ranks the remaining stocks by free cash flow yield (FCF/EV), culling the top 300 names. This screen posits that firms with higher cash flow from operations after capex relative to their size (enterprise value) should be in a better position to service their debt. It re-ranks this shorter list by dividend yield, selecting the top 100 names and weighting them by aggregate cash dividends (a weighting approach used by many WisdomTree ETFs). GCOW’s equity-only exposure would be unremarkable, except that fund issuer Pacer is known for ETFs that toggle between equity and cash: GCOW has no such feature.On 1/13/2017, PGHD changed its name, ticker, and underlying from Pacer Global High Dividend ETF (PGHD) that tracked Pacer Global Cash Cows Dividends 100 Index to Pacer Global Cash Cows Dividends ETF (GCOW) that tracks the Pacer Global Cash Cows Dividend Index. This change is pure branding change. There is no change in investment strategy and economic exposure.
