PSET Fund Description

PSET tracks an index of large-cap US firms with a high degree of pricing power. Holdings are selected by several fundamental and technical factors, and weighted equally within three tiers.

PSET Factset Analytics Insight

PSET aims to hold companies with strong pricing power—the ability to raise prices without affecting demand. The idea is that such firms tend to face little competition, and can pass through cost increases to their customers, which should lead to more consistent sales and earnings growth. In fact, what PSET actually selects for in its holdings is strong and consistent sales, earnings and operating margins. Additional selection factors include return volatility, earnings quality and volatility of earnings forecasts. This should result in a basket of firms with strong fundamentals. Price setting firms are selected only indirectly, but it's hard to fault the fund for this, since the concept of pricing power is somewhat nebulous and difficult to capture in an indexed product. Notably, market share is not considered.PSET's holdings are equally-weighted inside of three tiers with 50 names each (based on the selection ranking), making up 50%, 35% and 15% of the portfolio. With no sector caps, the portfolio may look quite different from the broad market. The fund is reconstituted and rebalanced annually, in late March.PSET launched in March 2016 and charges a reasonable fee in context.
