FTCS First Trust Capital Strength ETF

Seeks to track, before fees and expenses, the Capital Strength Index.From the stocks in the NASDAQ US Benchmark Index, the largest 500 companies with a minimum three-month average daily dollar trading volume of $5 million are selected. To be eligible for inclusion in the index, companies must have: 1) at least $1 billion in cash or short term investments. 2) a long term debt to market cap ratio less than 30%. 3) a return on equity greater than 15%. Eligible companies are then ranked by a combined short-term (3-month) and long-term (1-year) realized volatility. The 50 companies with the lowest combined volatility score are selected for inclusion in the index. A maximum weight of 30% in any one Industry Classification Benchmark industry is allowed. If an industry has a weight greater than 30%, the highest ranking security by volatility will be removed and replaced with the next eligible security from a different industry. This process is repeated until no industry has a weight greater than 30%. The index stocks are equally weighted initially and on each rebalancing effective date.
