The First Trust ETF seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the StrataQuant? Consumer Staples Index ("Index"), net of expenses. The investment strategy of the First Trust ETF is to invest in and hold the Constituent Securities of the applicable Index in the same proportion as they are reflected in the Index or securities intended to replicate the performance of such Index. The Index results from applying the AlphaDEX? methodology to the Russell 1000? Index, a market index representing the large capitalization segment of the U.S. equity universe, and then selecting the Constituent Securities for the Index from those qualifying stocks included in the Consumer Staples Sector.

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.
The stock’s annual returns have been stable and consistent compared to its sector peers(for a hold period of at least 12 months) and is in the top quartile. Although stability is good, also keep in mind it can limit returns.
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.
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.
The company has under performed its peers on annual average total returns in the past 5 years.
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.
