The Small-Cap Value folio was designed for investors seeking aggressive long-term capital appreciation with volatility generally higher than the overall U.S. equity market.
The Small-Cap Value folio consists of small-cap companies that appear undervalued based on their price-to-book ratio as compared to the overall market. Small-cap companies are defined as having market capitalizations below $1.7 billion USD.
Stocks of small companies can provide more 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, and financial resources, and their management teams may lack depth and experience. 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. This folio’s broad diversification may make it less volatile than more concentrated small-cap value funds.
