It's new, so I couldn't chart it directly, but if we compare indexes we can go back about 10 years. In the attachments I've put the midcap vs the indi (not the satrix indi, but the industrial index which the satrix indi is based on) over 10 years, and 5 years, and the midcap vs the top40 over 10 years.

Clearly it beats the top40, but the interesting thing is how close it is to the indi. In fact, a lot of the time it beats the indi in the 10 year graph, and in the 5 year apart from the period between July 2012 where the indi took off.

I like the list of companies, and the fact that it's more diversified than the Satrix INDI so I'm thinking of adding some of these to my portfolio.

Your thoughts?

Charts look good for 50/50 mix of the 2. I would not go for RMBMIDCAP though as it only had 8 trades today. I would go through that list checking charts and fundamentals then choose the best 10. I'm sure that way you will beat both the STXIND and RMB mid caps.

I can't pick shares so I'll just buy the index. The fact that it only had 8 trades isn't too important for an ETF. As with the other ETFs there is always a buy and a sell with a small spread. In this case the bid is 559 and the offer is 566, so a 7c spread. These bids and offers are managed by the ETF company, so the share is always liquid. You can buy as many as you like at 566, and sell as many as you like at 559, the ETF company will just keep taking or selling. If you're lucky someone will be selling some somewhere between that spread and you'll score a few cents. Happens fairly often with the indi, but that's pretty well traded.

Thanks. I never knew that. My time with share picking is coming to an end soon. Takes up too much time and I want to pursue other interests without having to watch each share. So I would agree with 50/50 in the indexes. Only prob I see now is that the Top40 is catching up to the Indi. Will have to watch that for awhile.
I started here with nothing and still have most of it left.

So the 10y chart shows the Mid beating the Indi. The 5y chart shows the Indi beating the Mid. So long term, the Indi is catching up to the Mid.
Something I don't quite get is how the index funds manage to replicate the index. Do the ETF index managers buy and sell their own shares to keep the gains/losses the same as the index?

Indi25
Satrix INDI endeavours to replicate the performance of the FTSE/JSE Industrial 25 index. This index comprises the top 25 industrial companies listed on the JSE.

Satrix INDI accurately replicates the FTSE/JSE INDI 25 index, by holding the shares in this index in exactly the weighted and number they constitute the index. Dividends paid by the underlying companies, less expenses incurred by managing the portfolio, are paid out to Satrix INDI shareholders on a quarterly basis.

Orca, I think they use the weighted average of each security they hold in the indi portfolio, if you look in the indi share basket you notice weekly percentage changes of some stocks, example SAB was there largest holding of 24% of the portfolio about 4 months ago and present holding is around 19%.
If a stock is in a up trend they increase there weighting.

That's the way I see it done but I could be wrong  ;D

I would think that the weighting changes with the stock performance. For example, I started with 50% CML, 25% PNC and 25% MTA. It changed to 80% CML without me having done anything.

I've added the midcap to the competition. It seems to have been lagging the top40 and the indi by a long way over the past 6 months, all time it beats it as you can see above, and also in many year to year comparisons.. Interestingly if there was a small cap etf (there isn't locally) it would be by far the best. Here's a graph of the small cap index compared to the indi. Much more volatile though obviously.

Have to add a downside to this ETF. As the value is so low, +-R5.60, the 7c spread means you pay a 3.5c premium per share. That's a percentage of 0.625%. Quite high if you compare it to the satrix indi which has a 12c spread ie. premium of 6c for a R50 share. That works out to 0.12%, significantly lower.

The dividend of the midcap seems to make up for that though, it's sitting at about 2.4% compared to 1.4% for the indi.

Food for thought.

The spread for this (ASHMID) is sitting at 60c this morning with a last traded price of 743, that's a 8% spread.  :wall:

One thing to note, as Simon from Just One Lap realised in one of his podcasts a few months ago, when one of the big Top40 companies start going down and continue its fall into the MidCap index, it drags the whole index down because the smaller companies that make up the MidCap index are too small to negate the negative impact of a larger, previously Top40 company going to hell.
