New York, NY (July 29, 2020) - S-Network Global Indexes, an Alerian company, and Sungarden Investment Management, a discretionary money manager specializing in hedged investing strategies, announced today the launch of the S-Network YARP Large Cap Value 50 direct index strategy on the SMArtX Turnkey Asset Management Platform (TAMP).  

The S-Network YARP Large Cap Value 50 Index is a sophisticated value equity strategy that screens the top 50 companies in the S-Network US Equity Large Cap 200 Index based on a constituent's dividend yield, yield history and proprietary Yield at a Reasonable Price (YARP) valuation score.

Originally developed by Rob Isbitts, Founder and Chief Investment Strategist of Sungarden Investment Management and Tyler Isbitts, the YARP methodology evaluates the tradeoff between a stock's long-term upside potential and risk of major loss. Providing yield-oriented investors with an innovative way to stress-test decision making, YARP investing is essential to the methodology of the S-Network YARP Large Cap Value 50 Index.

"This index reflects many key drivers of our proprietary active investment approach, which my son Tyler and S-Network Global Indexes translated to a compelling index-based strategy. We look forward to providing yield-oriented investors and the broader investment community with a sophisticated approach to value investing," said Rob Isbitts.

"The development and launch of the S-Network YARP Large Cap Value 50 Index is a testament to the innovative approach we take to index creation," said Patrick Shaddow, Head of Index Operations at S-Network Global Indexes. "We're excited to introduce this specialized dividend screening methodology as a direct index model to the investment community," noted Shaddow.

S-Network Global Indexes Launches New REIT Dividend Dogs Index (RDOGX)

  • January 06, 2020
  • S-Network Global Indexes

New Equal Weighted Methodology Is Designed to Optimize Yield and Minimize Certain Risks

New York, NY (January 6, 2020) — S-Network Global Indexes Inc. (SNET) today announced the launch of a new index that provides exposure to the five REITs with the highest indicated yields in each of nine REIT segments. The index has been licensed by ALPS Advisors, Inc. to serve as the underlying for a new ETF (Ticker: RDOG).

Said SNET CEO Joseph LaCorte, "Yield is the name of the game and this index is designed to provide it."

RDOGX has a current trailing-12-month yield of 6.21% and applies the "Dogs of the Dow Theory" to the REIT segments. Index constituents are derived from the benchmark S-Network Composite US REIT Index (SNREIT) and are equally weighted. Mortgage REITs are excluded from the index to diminish interest rate sensitivity.

To further minimize risk, a quality screen is applied that ensures that only REITs whose funds from operations per share are greater than their trailing twelve-month dividends per share are allowed into the index.

Importantly, the index provides exposure to Technology REITs, which invest in wireless towers and data centers, and is one of the fastest-growing REIT segments.

Said S-Network Head of Index Operations Patrick Shaddow, "We did a careful examination of the REIT market with an eye toward eliminating some of the outsized risks, including risks associated with changes taking place in the retail environment."

The Victory Volatility Weighted BRI Indexes are tracked by the following exchange-traded funds:

  • Timothy Plan High Dividend Stock ETF (TPHD)

December 11, 2019 (New York, NY) — FolioBeyond and S-Network Global Indexes have partnered on a new Fixed Income index that is now available for direct investment on the Turnkey Asset Management Platform (TAMP) of SMArtX Advisory Solutions.

“We believe the sophistication and scalability of this strategy offers a competitive edge over current Fixed Income direct index offerings,” said Joseph LaCorte, CEO of S-Network.
