The All Cap Blend style ranks second out of the twelve fund styles as detailed in our 2Q18 Style Ratings for ETFs and Mutual Funds report. Last quarter, the All Cap Blend style ranked second as well. It gets our Attractive rating, which is based on an aggregation of ratings of 110 ETFs and 761 mutual funds in the All Cap Blend style as of April 16, 2018. See a recap of our 1Q18 Style Ratings here.

Figures 1 and 2 show the five best and worst rated ETFs and mutual funds in the style. Not all All Cap Blend style ETFs and mutual funds are created the same. The number of holdings varies widely (from 3 to 4639). This variation creates drastically different investment implications and, therefore, ratings.

Investors seeking exposure to the All Cap Blend style should buy one of the Attractive-or-better rated ETFs or mutual funds from Figures 1 and 2.

Our Robo-Analyst technology[1] empowers our unique ETF and mutual fund rating methodology, which leverages our rigorous analysis of each fund’s holdings.[2] We think advisors and investors focused on prudent investment decisions should include analysis of fund holdings in their research process for ETFs and mutual funds.

* Best ETFs exclude ETFs with TNAs less than $100 million for inadequate liquidity.

Fourteen ETFs are excluded from Figure 1 because their total net assets (TNA) are below $100 million and do not meet our liquidity minimums.

Eight mutual funds are excluded from Figure 2 because their total net assets (TNA) are below $100 million and do not meet our liquidity minimums.

WisdomTree Dynamic Long/Short U.S. Equity Fund (NYSE:DYLS) is the top-rated All Cap Blend ETF and Fidelity Export & Multinational Fund (FEXKX) is the top-rated All Cap Blend mutual fund. Both earn a Very Attractive rating.

ProShares Ultra Telecommunications (NYSE:LTL) is the worst rated All Cap Blend ETF and Saratoga Advantage Large Capitalization Value Portfolio (SLVYX) is the worst rated All Cap Blend mutual fund. Both earn a Very Unattractive rating.

The Danger Within

Buying a fund without analyzing its holdings is like buying a stock without analyzing its business and finances. Put another way, research on fund holdings is necessary due diligence because a fund’s performance is only as good as its holdings’ performance. Don’t just take our word for it, see what Barron’s says on this matter.

PERFORMANCE OF HOLDINGS = PERFORMANCE OF FUND
