SDVY Fund Description

SDVY tracks an equal-weighted index of small- and midcap US companies with historically increasing dividends and that meet various fundamental criteria.

SDVY Factset Analytics Insight

SDVY aims to curate a portfolio of 100 small- and midcap US companies with increasing dividends over the past five years. Holdings must also meet certain fundamental criteria, including a cash-to-debt ratio greater than 25%, a payout ratio no greater than 65%, and positive earnings. The resulting portfolio is then equal-weighed. SDVY looks to be a small- and midcap version of RDVY, which applies a similar methodology to the large-cap space. The index is rebalanced quarterly and reconstituted annually.
