Pacer ETFs Launches New Fund Focused on U.S. Companies That Export Globally


U.S. companies that export are poised for long-term growth and may make a wise investment for stockholders.

PAOLI, Penn. (PRWEB) July 24, 2018

Investors looking for significant growth opportunities may want to consider the newly launched Pacer U.S. Export Leaders ETF (Ticker: PEXL). This ETF aims to invest in companies that have historically seen higher earnings and revenue growth as they embrace the larger consumer base of the global market.

PEXL will track the Pacer U.S. Export Leaders Index. This index first selects the top 200 companies in the S&P 500 and S&P MidCap 400 that have the highest annual foreign sales as a percentage of total sales. From there, it narrows down to the 100 companies with the highest change in free cash flow growth over the past five years. All 100 of those companies are equally weighted.

"These are U.S. companies that are able to expand their reach beyond domestic markets while maintaining substantial free cash flow growth. PEXL offers the opportunity to invest in these high-quality, U.S.-based large-cap and mid-cap companies that have proven themselves to have higher earnings growth and revenue growth than their domestic-only counterparts. Smaller companies that don't trade around the world have limited growth potential. Bigger firms that have connected with consumers around the world can be a great fit for an investment portfolio," says Sean O'Hara, President of Pacer ETF Distributors.

While tough talk of foreign trade between the U.S. and the world has recently dominated headlines, O'Hara says investors should focus on a long-term horizon.

"We may see better conditions for U.S. exporters come out of these frank trade discussions. But no matter what, global trade will continue to march forward. Companies that do a great job selling their goods and services overseas, and in particular those with a proven history of free cash flow growth, can be a great choice for investors," Joe Thomson, Founder and President of Pacer Financial, says.

Pacer ETFs also just launched the Pacer CFRA-Stovall Equal Weight Seasonal Rotation ETF (SZNE). These two ETFs mark the 14th and 15th ETFs Pacer, which recently crossed the $2.6 billion AUM threshold, has issued.
