VLU Fund Description

VLU tracks an index that weights securities from the S&P 1500 according to a combination of 5 fundamental factors and market cap over the past 5 years, aiming to find those with lower price relative to valuations.

VLU Factset Analytics Insight

While VLU delivers its aim of a broad portfolio with a value bias, weak investor interest undermines its appeal. VLU holds the entire S&P 1500—It underweights stocks that don't show value characteristics, whereas typical value funds would omit them altogether. Using a weighting system that weights size 'buckets' based on fundamental factors like cash flow, dividends and book value, the fund produces reasonable value traits in line with our value benchmark, albeit with a bit less yield. Investors aren't showing any interest however judging from tiny assets and truly awful trading volume. Investors new to ETF trading shouldn't learn here, as lessons may be painful. We see fund closure risk. A bright spot: Issuer Stage Street Global Advisors sharply lowered the fee in February 2015, which may attract sorely needed assets and liquidity to the fund.
