A Smoother Small-Cap Ride With Yield, Too

Small-cap stocks are strengthening as traders renewed their outlook on the Trump administration’s pro-growth agenda. In recent weeks, U.S. markets have been roiled over uncertainty concerning President Donald Trump’s ability to push through pro-growth economic policies through Congress as the White House wades through political intrigue. However, the small-cap segment is recovering on expectations that the administration could overhaul the U.S. tax policy.

CSB allocates almost 21% of its weight to consumer discretionary stocks, a significant overweight to that sector relative to the Russell 2000. The VictoryShares ETF also has a 23.3% weight to financial services names, again a large overweight compared to the Russell 2000.

CSB features a dividend yield of 3.13%, putting it among the highest-yielding small-cap ETFs.
