The investment seeks to maximize total after-tax return to its shareholders through capital appreciation, and income from dividends and interest, consistent with reasonable risk.
The fund principally invests in a diversified list of common stocks of companies of any capitalization, determined by the investment adviser to be highly profitable, yet undervalued. Muhlenkamp & Company, Inc. (the "Adviser") looks for companies the advisor believes to have above-average profitability, as measured by corporate return-on-equity, and that sell at below-average prices, as measured by price-to-earnings-ratios.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite Index.
The index is designed to measure the total rate of return of a hypothetical “buy-write”, or “covered call”, strategy on the S&P 500 Index. This strategy consists of a hypothetical portfolio consisting of a “long” position indexed to the S&P 500 Index and the sale of a succession of one-month, at- or slightly out-of-the-money
S&P 500 Index call options that are listed on the Chicago Board Options Exchange.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the SPECTRUM Large Cap U.S. Sector Momentum Index.
The index tracks the value of a notional portfolio composed of the ten sub-indices of the S&P 500. It is based on the relative weights of the sub-indices within the index. The weights of the sub-indices that outperform the S&P 500 Total Return Index are increased in the index, which weights of the sub-indices that underperform are reduced.
