VSLU Factset Analytics Insight

VSLU has a great deal of flexibility. The fund looks to hold mainly large-cap equities, but the prospectus states the fund can reach in to the small- and midcap space. The fund can also utilize leverage, inverse exposure, and commodity ETFs as well. Using their own research models, the fund adviser looks for securities it believes to have a higher return potential based on a company’s valuation, projected future earnings, dividends, leverage, growth potential, performance, and business strategy. The adviser looks to employ risk mitigation by avoiding stocks perceived to be overvalued and avoiding macro sector bets by equally weighting within each sector.
