* Returns reflect model performance from the Inception Date to the Date Funded, and funded performance since the Date Funded, if funded. Note that the data source for determining the composition of the folio changed on 11/30/2018, which resulted in changes to the composition of the folio, and that performance after this date may differ from the performance using the prior data source. Your returns may deviate significantly from the values displayed here, due to many factors, including how long after a strategy has been updated that you place orders to update your holdings.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We sorted U.S. exchange-listed securities with market capitalizations greater than $1 billion, including MLPs (Master Limited Partnerships), by the highest income distributions.
  2. We then screened for securities with a historical beta between 0.1 and 1.
  3. From this list, we selected securities with the highest income distributions in each sector and targeted the sector weights to be comparable to those of the largest 500 securities ranked by market capitalization.
  4. We equally weighted all securities in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 30 securities in this folio.

Update Frequency

Quarterly.

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.
