A lot of ETF research focuses primarily on past performance and fees. AltaVista takes a totally different approach by evaluating ETFs based on the fundamentals of each underlying constituent. As a result, we can answer the critical questions most investors would ask before buying a single stock or bond, such as:

  • What are expectations for sales and EPS growth, and how are they changing?
  • What's happening on the balance sheet?
  • How is it valued in relation to these fundamentals?
  • What is the yield-to-maturity, credit quality and sensitivity to interest rates?

The benefit of this approach is that it helps investors make better fund selections based on forward-looking measures of investment merit, not just past performance. Our succinct reports cover nearly 1,000 ETFs and are updated daily to help keep investors on top of changing market conditions.
