Recommendation

AVOID

Not worthwhile for most investors. A rating of AVOID is assigned to ETFs with ALTAR Scores in the lowest quintile (the bottom 20%) of their category. Often, funds in this category consist of stocks with little if any history or expectation of profitability, and as a result our fundamentally-driven analysis may not be relevant.

Category Overview
There are 198 funds in the Global Equities category, with an average ALTAR Score™ of 5.3% and a standard deviation of 3.0%. BLOK's ALTAR Score™ is approximately 1.2 standard deviations below the category average. This places BLOK in the 12nd percentile among funds in the category.
