Objective

The Folio 100 folio was developed for investors seeking long-term capital appreciation and volatility similar to the NASDAQ 100, which has historically been higher than the market.

Strategy

The Folio 100 folio consists of the companies included in the NASDAQ 100, a market-capitalization weighted index. The NASDAQ 100 consists of the largest capitalized 100 companies that trade on the NASDAQ exchange.

With this folio you can achieve the benefits of index investing without the asset-based fees and other expenses typical of mutual funds and ETFs. The Folio 100 holdings are assembled by referring to the NASDAQ website for the current list of companies. The weights applied to each security in the list are based on a calculation we make using market capitalization data provided by Zacks. Unlike the NASDAQ, the Folio 100 RTG is rebalanced monthly so that new subscribers to the RTG can chose to buy at weights that have been calculated recently and so that the reference list of securities reflects additions and deletions of securities from the NASDAQ published holdings list. This folio seeks to track the returns of the NASDAQ 100, but because component weights are derived and the model is rebalanced monthly your funded folio may not always closely track the NASDAQ 100 over time.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. The stocks in the folio are the same stocks used by NASDAQ to create the NASDAQ 100.
  2. Each stock’s weight is determined by its market capitalization in comparison to the total market capitalization of the folio. Therefore, the higher the market capitalization, the more the stock contributes to the overall index.

Number of Securities

There are generally 100 securities in this folio.

Update Frequency

Monthly.

If the characteristics of the Folio have changed substantially, the securities included may change. Also, corporate actions, such as a merger, or other events may cause changes to the securities held at any time. Your returns may deviate significantly from the values displayed here, due to many factors, including how long after a folio has been updated that you place orders to update your holdings. RTGs are updated using market data from multiple sources including Zacks Investment Research ( www.zacks.com ), International Data Corporation (IDC) ( www.idc.com ), and other suppliers.
