    Be wary of smart beta outperformance: Stockspot

    ( DYOR )

    i hold IHD , VHY , HVST , SYI in the 'smart beta ' style

    and despite a similar ideal ( avoid ordinary performers ) they behave very differently ( and at different times )

    all these ETFs are DRPed ( which is a big help to their overall performance )

    i would recommend NOT sticking to this style exclusively i find a balance of index ( and sector ) plays as well as 'smart beta ' a better all-round mix ( as well as shares , LICs and REITs )

    each style will have it's good times ( hopefully )
