S-Network Global Indexes announced today the launch of its new S-Network Sector Leaders Index (Ticker: SLDRX). SLDRX is a portfolio of large capitalization stocks that have been screened for fundamental characteristics associated with growth and quality.
SLDRX comprises 45 stocks, which are all constituents of the S&P 500. SLDRX selects the five stocks in each of nine GICS sectors (Telecom and IT are combined) that demonstrate the strongest growth and highest quality characteristics in their respective sectors.
Said S-Network CEO Joseph LaCorte, “This multi-factor index includes stocks with solid growth metrics, combined with key measures of financial quality. Its unique construction methodology assures sound diversification across sectors.”
SLDRX has been licensed by ALPS to serve as the basis for an index-linked ETF (Ticker: SLDR), which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
