ETF Research Center Fund Rating

Our measure of an ETF's overall investment merit

Divided by: Fwd. P/BV--x
Less: Expenses-- bp

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 be less relevant.

Category Overview
There are 886 funds in the US Equities category, with an average ALTAR Score™ of 5.9% and a standard deviation of 2.7%. FXN's ALTAR Score™ is approximately 0.9 standard deviations below the category average. This places FXN in the 19th percentile among funds in the category.
