The investment seeks to provide investors with long-term capital appreciation. The fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by allocating among a concentrated portfolio of equity positions and cash. Stocks will be evaluated with a growth-oriented approach to selecting the equities of companies that Navellier considers to have superior appreciation potential. Between 0% - 100% of the fund's portfolio will be invested in a maximum of 20 equity securities; between 0% - 100% of the fund's portfolio may be invested in cash and/or short-term investments. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to maximize after-tax growth of capital. The fund seeks to buy and hold for the long-term stocks of attractively valued, high-quality growth companies. It typically uses a growth approach in selecting investments by looking for companies with one or more of the following characteristics: a demonstrated ability to consistently increase revenues, earnings, and cash flow; strong management; attractive business niches; and a sustainable competitive advantage.
The investment seeks long-term capital growth. The fund invests at least 65% of its net assets in common stocks of companies of all market capitalization ranges, although the Adviser expects that the fund will primarily invest in common stocks of large-cap companies (those with market capitalizations of at least $10 billion measured at the time of investment). It may invest in more volatile sectors, which could result in a disproportionate return or loss compared to the S&P 500 Index. The fund may invest up to 5% of its net assets in ETFs and up to 10% of its net assets in foreign stocks, which is accomplished primarily through ADRs.

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.


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.
