Exchange-traded funds offer a convenient way to invest in sectors or niches that interest you. If you expect seemingly undervalued large-cap companies to prosper as their intrinsic value is eventually realized and as they grow even bigger over time, then the First Trust Large Cap Value AlphaDEX ETF (NYSE: FTA ) could save you a lot of trouble. Instead of trying to figure out which companies will perform best, you can use this ETF to invest in lots of them simultaneously.
This ETF has performed reasonably well, beating the S&P 500, on average, over the past three years. As with most investments, of course, we can't expect outstanding performances in every quarter or year. Investors with conviction need to wait for their holdings to deliver.
