Steps to Create This Folio
- We identified small-cap stocks as those having market capitalizations smaller than $1.7 billion.
- We then ranked these small-cap securities according to their price-to-book ratios from lowest to highest.
- We divided the ranked list into quartiles and determined the median of all the price-to-book ratios.
- We selected securities that had price-to-book ratios closest to the median.
- We selected securities so that the sector weights of the folio were comparable to the sector weights of the largest 500 securities ranked by market capitalization.
- We equally weighted all securities in the folio.
Number of Securities
There are generally 30 securities in this folio.
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.
