Ready-to-Go Folios: Small-Cap Blend Folio

Investment Style Folios | All Folios


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


The Small-Cap Blend folio consists of companies that have both strong earnings growth potential and appear undervalued based on their price-to-book ratio, in comparison to the overall market. Small-cap companies are defined as having market capitalizations below $1.7 billion USD.

A blend investing strategy provides aspects of both value and growth investing styles, without making the difficult determination as to which style the market may favor. Blend folios are designed to be less volatile then their small-cap growth counterparts but offer potentially less price stability than large-caps and can involve more risk and growth potential than mid-caps. This folio’s broad diversification may make it less volatile than small-cap blend mutual funds that may have more concentrated portfolios.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We identified small-cap stocks, those we defined as having market capitalizations smaller than $1.7 billion.
  2. We ranked these small-cap securities according to their price-to-book ratios from lowest to highest.
  3. We divided the ranked list into quartiles and determined the median of all the price-to-book ratios.
  4. We selected securities that had price-to-book ratios closest to the median.
  5. We equally weighted all securities in the folio.
  6. We selected securities so that the sector weights of the folio were comparable to the sector weights of the S&P500.

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.
