Objective

This folio was developed for investors seeking long-term capital appreciation in popular stocks with high volatility and asset turnover.

Strategy

The Top Ten Buys folio consists of stocks that were the most popular based on buy orders from Folio clients from the previous month.

This allows investors to purchase the most popular companies that Folio clients are collectively buying. This strategy may offer growth if the actions of Folio clients are successful in identifying good opportunities but may result in higher asset concentrations in popular sectors and industries.

  3. We set the weights of each stock to reflect the relative weight of purchases by customers of the ten stocks to the overall number of purchases.
