Ready-to-Go Folios: Mid-Cap Value Folio

Investment Style Folios | All Folios


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


The Mid-Cap Value folio consists of companies that appear undervalued based on their price-to-book ratio, in comparison to the overall market. Mid-cap companies are defined as having market capitalizations between $1.7 billion and $11 billion USD.

A value approach seeks to identify companies whose stock prices do not appear to reflect their underlying values. Mid-caps typically offer greater return potential than large established firms and involve less risk than small-caps. By investing in stocks that already appear to be out of favor or undervalued, the folio is intended to be less volatile than investing in growth stocks. The broad diversification of this folio makes it less volatile than mid-cap value funds, which are generally more concentrated portfolios.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We identified mid-cap stocks as those having market capitalizations between $1.7 billion and $11 billion.
  2. We determined the average price-to-book and price-to-earnings ratios in a given sector.
  3. We screened for stocks with low price-to-earnings and price-to-book ratios compared to the sector average.
  4. We ranked these mid-cap stocks and targeted the sector weights to be comparable to those of the S&P 500..
  5. We equally weighted all securities in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 30 securities in the folio.

Update Frequency


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.
