Recommendation

SPECULATIVE

Deeply undervalued but risky. A rating of SPECULATIVE is assigned to ETFs with ALTAR Scores in the top quintile (the top 20%) of their category, indicating exceptional appreciation potential. However, often these are narrowly-focused funds or in industries with structural issues, which may also make them very risky. Nonetheless they may still be useful as part of a well-diversified portfolio.

Category Overview
There are 899 funds in the US category, with an average ALTAR Score™ of 5.7% and a standard deviation of 2.5%. DVLU's ALTAR Score™ is approximately 1.9 standard deviations above the category average. This places DVLU in the 97th percentile among funds in the category.
