Historically, the stock market has favored small-cap and value stocks over the long run, but there were long periods of time where large-caps and growth stocks maintained the performance edge. We believe that when viewed 12-month or 36-month rolling periods, the return differentials appear remarkably patterned. The Burney U.S. Factor Rotation ETF aims to take advantage of these size and style market phases by leaning into the phase we anticipate to be in favor.
While Burney believes the size and style phase of the market is the dominant variable impacting stock market returns, stock selection is also an important piece of the investment strategy. Burney uses its long-time quantitative stock selection modeling process that looks at factors such as Growth, Value, Profitability, Momentum, and Quality to rate individual stocks with an alternative dataset using a company’s digital footprint and analyst expectations to inform stock selection.
The Burney Company, established in 1974, is an Investment Advisor registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We provide professional management of investments for individual and corporate clients. Our Portfolio Managers are located throughout the country while our headquarters and analytical group are in Reston, Virginia.

This fundamental approach to equity analysis and portfolio management drives our success.
