An Active ETF Strategy to Hone in on Quality Value Names | ETF Trends

After the market pullback, investors are beginning to look to the value strategy and related ETFs in an attempt to select some bargain picks.

“We believe now is the time to be looking at value investing generally…. We feel our value strategy is differentiated among other active managers in the market,” said Emidio Checcone, Portfolio Manager for AdvisorShares DoubleLine Value Equity ETF, at the Charles Schwab IMPACT 2018 conference.

Specifically, the AdvisorShares DoubleLine Value Equity ETF (DBLV) tries to implement a fundamental value strategy. Fundamental value investing targets two opportunity sets which arise when the market temporarily prices the equity of companies below intrinsic value: classic value and quality value common stocks, according to AdvisorShares.
