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 270 funds in the International Equities category, with an average ALTAR Score™ of 7.6% and a standard deviation of 2.6%. FDTS's ALTAR Score™ is approximately 1.4 standard deviations above the category average. This places FDTS in the 92nd percentile among funds in the category.
