Ready-to-Go Folios: Price-to-Sales Folio

Fundamental Folios | All Folios


The Price-to-Sales folio is designed for investors seeking moderate capital appreciation in return for moderate volatility, in line with the S&P 500.


The Price-to-Sales folio is constructed from the largest 100 companies with the lowest price-to-sales ratio, utilizing the principles of fundamental investment analysis.

The price-to-sales ratio (P/S) is a measure of valuing a company by taking the price of the stock divided by the company’s total sales per share for the past year. Sales are generally less susceptible to manipulation than earnings, and therefore, the price-to-sales ratio may provide a better indication of corporate performance.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We screened for the largest 100 companies, based on market capitalization, that have the lowest price-to-sales ratio.
  2. Individual company weights were determined by dividing their market capitalization, adjusted for price-to-sales, by the total sales of the 100 companies.

Number of Securities
