PY Fund Description

PY tracks an index of dividend-paying large- and midcap US stocks that are selected by several fundamental factors, including dividend yield and buyback yield. Holdings are equally weighted within two tiers.

PY Factset Analytics Insight

PY aims to hold firms with high, sustainable shareholder yield—defined as the combined yield of dividends and share buybacks. Beginning with a large- and midcap index of US stocks, PY screens out non-dividend-payers, ranks its universe by several factors, then selects the top 20%. In addition to dividend yield and buyback yield, the selection factors include yield sustainability metrics like cash flow growth and EBITDA/debt. Selected stocks are equally-weighted within two tiers ; the highest ranking half makes up 65% of PY's portfolio, with the bottom half accounting for the remainder.With no caps on sector exposure, PY could end up looking quite different from the broad market. However, the fund's exposure should be fairly stable—holdings are updated and rebalanced just once annually, in late March.PY launched in March 2016 with a reasonable fee. Also consider SYLD, an actively-managed competitor which also utilizes the shareholder yield concept.
