Steps to Create This Folio
- We ranked all Japanese companies with U.S.-listed ADRs, as defined by Zacks Investment Research, according to their market capitalizations while considering the company’s annual/quarterly earnings per share and growth rate.
- We then selected the top 30 securities with average broker recommendations better than “sell”, as defined by Zacks Investment Research, to put in the folio. If 30 were not available, the complete list of securities was added to the folio.
- We added a percentage weighting to the iShares Japan ETF (EWJ).
- We equally weighted all stocks so that they would total between 50% and 60% in the folio and weighted the ETF so it would total between 40% to 50% in the folio.
Number of Securities
There are generally between 20 and 30 securities in the folio, although the number may change.
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.
