Description
The investment seeks primarily current and growing income and secondarily long-term capital appreciation. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets plus borrowings for investment purposes in equity securities, primarily common stock, of companies that have historically paid dividends and have strong dividend policies. Although the fund may invest in any size companies, it primarily invests in large capitalization companies. Under normal market conditions, it typically invests in a diversified portfolio of 35 to 50 securities spread across a variety of economic sectors.
The investment seeks to provide a long-term total return on capital, primarily through capital appreciation, but also some income. The fund seeks to achieve its objective by approximating the total return of the Bridgeway Ultra-Large 35 Index (the "index"), a proprietary index composed by the Adviser, while minimizing the distribution of capital gains and minimizing costs. It normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in blue chip company stocks included within the index. The fund invests in the stocks that comprise the index and seeks to approximately match the index composition and weighting.
The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI USA Equal Weighted Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the underlying index and may invest up to 10% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents. The index is an equally-weighted securities index that measures the performance of equity securities in the top 85% by market capitalization of equity securities listed on stock exchanges in the United States and which represents an alternative weighting scheme to its market capitalization-weighted parent index, the MSCI USA Index.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.

Similarity

FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
