First Trust Small Cap Growth AlphaDEX® Fund (FYC)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust Small Cap Growth AlphaDEX® Fund is an exchange-traded fund. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield, before the Fund's fees and expenses, of an equity index called the Nasdaq AlphaDEX® Small Cap Growth™ Index.
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
Index Description According to the Index Provider
  • The Index is an "enhanced" index created and administered by Nasdaq, Inc. ("Nasdaq") which employs the AlphaDEX® stock selection methodology to select stocks from the Nasdaq US 700 Small Cap Growth™ Index that meet certain criteria.
  • Nasdaq constructs the Index by ranking the eligible stocks from the Nasdaq US 700 Small Cap Growth™ Index on growth factors including 3-, 6- and 12- month price appreciation, sales to price and one year sales growth, and separately on value factors including book value to price, cash flow to price and return on assets. All stocks are ranked on the sum of ranks for the growth factors and, separately, all stocks are ranked on the sum of ranks for the value factors. A stock must have data for all growth and/or value factors to receive a rank for that style.
  • Each stock receives either its growth or value score as its selection score based on its style designation as determined by Nasdaq. Only those stocks designated as growth stocks are eligible for the portfolio.
  • The top 262 stocks based on the selection score determined in the previous step comprise the "selected stocks". The selected stocks are divided into quintiles based on their rankings and the top ranked quintiles receive a higher weight within the index. The stocks are equally-weighted within each quintile.
  • The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
