    It would seem the First Trust Capital Strength ETF (FTCS) is a much better approach to investing in "strong institutions", although it sticks to NASDAQ listings and has a high expense ratio (no word here on NYCC's expense ratio which is probably similar). At least the rationale is more on target with FTCS.

    NYCC expense ratio: .50%
    FTCS expense ratio: .65%
    FTCS does not stick exclusively to NASDAQ listings, rather it uses the NASDAQ US Benchmark Index.
    Both seem expensive just to own a bunch of domestic cash rich companies...
