RUFUSLU Russell RAFI U.S. Large Company Index

The starting universe of stocks are the U.S. stocks in the Russell RAFI Global Large Company Index (around 663 U.S. stocks). Each company is then given a composite score equal to the average of three factors: 1) Adjusted Sales: Constituent level adjusted sales are calculated using the average sales generated by each constituent over the past five years. Average total sales are then adjusted to take into consideration financial leverage by multiplying the sales component by an adjustment factor. The constituent level adjustment factor is equivalent to the ratio of average equity to average assets. Adjusting for financial leverage decreases the weight of companies with significant leverage. 2) Retained Operating Cash Flow: Constituent level retained operating cash flow is calculated using the average operating cash flow from operations less dividends and buybacks (as defined below) over the past five years. 3) Dividends plus Buybacks: Constituent level dividends plus buybacks is calculated using the average dividends paid and share buybacks over the past five years. Securities representing the bottom 2% in fundamental weights are removed from the index, resulting in the index selecting around 650 stocks. The fundamental value for each security is multiplied by its float factor and the result is the float adjusted fundamental weight for the security.
