  • ETFs With 3D Printer Company Holdings 0 comments
    Jan 5, 2014 2:30 PM | about stocks: DDD, SSYS, RFG, FNY, FXL, IJK

    I've been hearing a lot about 3D printers for the last few years, and whenever I see one in action on TV - I'm always amazed.

    Given that I don't have a huge amount of money to invest and I want to limit my exposure to individual stocks, I decided to locate some ETFs that have exposure to the 3D printing companies.

    First Trust Technology AlphaDEX FXL

    The AMEX constructs the Index by ranking the stocks, which are members of the Russell 1000 Index on growth factors, including 3, 6 and 12-month price appreciation, sales to price and one-year sales growth, and separately on value factors, including book value to price, cash flow to price and return on assets.

    As of January 2, 2014 holdings in 3D Systems Corporation DDD represented 3.22% of the total assets. Holdings in Stratasys Ltd SSYS represented 2.44% of total holdings.

    The Index is narrow in focus, containing only those S&P MidCap 400 companies with strong growth characteristics as selected by S&P.

    The investment objective of the Fund is to seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield, before the Fund's fees and expenses, of an equity index called the Defined Mid Cap Growth Index.
