Objective

The Dividend Yield folio is designed for investors seeking income and moderate capital appreciation in return for moderate volatility, in line with the market.

Strategy

The Dividend Yield folio is constructed from the largest 100 companies with the highest overall dividend, adjusted for market capitalization, utilizing the principles of fundamental investment analysis.

Dividend yield is a measure of the relative value of a company’s dividend. It is calculated by dividing the firm’s dividend by the firm’s current stock price. High dividend yields may be viewed positively, as it may be an indication that the stock is undervalued.

There are generally 100 securities in the folio.
