Objective

The Consumer Staples folio was developed for investors seeking moderate capital appreciation and income with moderate volatility.

Strategy

The Consumer Staples folio consists of the largest companies in the consumer staples sector. This sector includes companies that produce food, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, and household products.

Consumer staples have historically not moved in tandem with the markets, because even in an economic downturn, people generally continued to use them. As a result, consumer staples are expected to provide a source of stability.
