The new Barron's 400SM ETF allows you to access some of America's high performing companies in a single share. Its underlying index seeks to collect the highest rated companies in the U.S. stock market according to MarketGrader's fundamental analysis, which measures them based on growth, valuation, profitability and cash flow. This process is based on rigorous measures of financial health, including many favored by Barron's writers (click for more on Barron's). Four key attributes distinguish the Barron's 400SM Index from other broad market benchmarks, providing you with an intelligent portfolio built from the bottom-up:

Fundamental Selection

All index components are selected on the basis of their fundamental strength, as measured by 24 fundamental indicators across Growth, Value, Profitability and Cash Flow.

Equal Weighting

All 400 components in the underlying index are equally weighted at each semi-annual rebalance, which prevents a small minority of companies from steering the entire index, giving smaller issues equal opportunity to contribute to overall performance.

DIVERSIFICATION & LIQUIDITY

All stocks in MarketGrader's coverage universe, from which the 400 are selected, are screened to help ensure their underlying liquidity is sufficient to be included in the index. Sector exposure is capped at the index level to help ensure diversification.

REBALANCE DISCIPLINE

The Barron's 400 is rebalanced every March and September, allowing for all companies' latest financial reports to be incorporated into the underlying selection process.
