ducovest Verdict



The First Asset MSCI Canada Low Risk Weighted ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the MSCI Canada Risk Weighted Index, net of expenses. MSCI Canada Risk Weighted Index is based on a traditional market capitalization weighted parent index, MSCI Canada Index, which includes Canadian large and mid-capitalization stocks. Constructed using a simple, but effective and transparent process, the MSCI Canada Risk Weighted Index reweights each security of the parent index so that stocks with lower risk are given higher index weights. The Index seeks to emphasize stocks with lower historical return variance and tends to have a bias towards lower size and lower risk stocks. Historically, the Index has exhibited lower realized volatility in comparison to its parent index.

This is a composite scorecard based on the application of evaluation criteria deemed most important by analysts. This is not a buy or sell recommendation.

What to like:

There is nothing we particularly like

What to not like:
Low market capitalization

This is among the smaller entities in its sectors with below median market capitalization. That may make it less stable in the long run unless it has a unique technology or market which can help it grow or get acquired in future.

Poor risk adjusted returns

This company is delivering below median risk adjusted returns in its peers. Even if it is outperforming on returns , the returns are unpredictable. Proceed with caution.

Below median total returns

The company has under performed its peers on annual average total returns in the past 5 years.

Below median dividend returns

The company’s average income yield over the past 5 years has been low compared to its peers. However, it is not a problem if you are not looking for income.
