First Trust NASDAQ Technology Dividend Index Fund (TDIV)
Investment Objective/Strategy - The First Trust NASDAQ Technology Dividend Index Fund is an exchange-traded fund. The Fund seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the NASDAQ Technology Dividend IndexSM (the "Index").
There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objectives will be achieved.
  • To be included in the index, the security must be listed on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC, the New York Stock Exchange, or the NYSE Amex and classified as a technology or telecommunications company according to Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB).
  • Each security must have a minimum market capitalization of $500 million, have a minimum three-month average daily dollar trading volume of $1 million, have paid a regular or common dividend within the past 12 months; have a yield of at least 0.5%; have not had a decrease in common dividends per share paid within past 12 months; and may not be issued by an issuer currently in bankruptcy proceedings.
  • The index is evaluated semi-annually in March and September, but if at any time during the year other than the evaluation, an index security no longer meets the eligibility criteria, or is otherwise determined to have become ineligible for inclusion in the index, the security is removed from the Index and is not replaced.
  • The index employs a modified dividend value weighting methodology. At each evaluation, the index securities are classified as technology or telecommunications based on their ICB classification. The technology securities are given a collective weight of 80% and the telecommunications securities are given a collective weight of 20% in the index. The index weighting methodology includes caps to prevent high concentrations among larger stocks.
  • The index is rebalanced quarterly.
