Objective

The Small-Cap Growth folio was developed for investors seeking aggressive long-term capital appreciation with higher volatility.

Strategy

The Small-Cap Growth folio consists of small-cap companies with high earnings growth potential, in comparison to the overall market. Small-cap companies are defined as having market capitalizations below $1.7 billion USD.

Stocks of small companies can provide substantial growth potential but are generally subject to more risk and erratic price movements than larger company stocks. These companies often have limited product lines, markets, financial resources and management teams may lack depth and experience. This folio’s broad diversification may make it less volatile than small-cap growth funds that have more concentrated portfolios.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We identified small-cap growth stocks as those having market capitalizations smaller than $1.7 billion.
  2. We determined the average sales and earnings growth projections in a given sector.
  3. We screened for stocks with above-average earnings growth and sales projections compared to the sector average.
  4. We ranked these small-cap stocks keeping the sector weights comparable to the S&P 500.
  5. We equally weighted all stocks in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 30 securities in the 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.
