IYZ Fund Description

IYZ tracks a heavily concentrated, market-cap-weighted index of US companies involved in the telecommunications industry.

IYZ Factset Analytics Insight

IYZ holds most of the stocks in our telecom benchmark, but still Fits poorly due to very different weighting. While the fund is still fairly concentrated, like the telecom industry itself, it underweights giants like AT&T and Verizon in favor of small-caps that our benchmark excludes. For all these differences, it ends up with market-like volatility, albeit with a very different pattern of returns. IYZ is a liquidity winner for investors of all sizes. Daily volume is high and spreads are small, while block liquidity is excellent. IYZ charges a fairly high fee for a passive index fund, but tracking is tight and securities lending income recovers some of the fund's expense.
