Description
The investment seeks to maximize capital appreciation. To pursue its goal, the fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in the stocks of midsize companies. The advisor currently defines "midsize companies" as companies included in the Russell Midcap® Index, the fund's benchmark index. Its portfolio managers apply a systematic, quantitative investment approach designed to identify and exploit relative misvaluations primarily within mid-cap stocks in the U.S. stock market. The fund typically will hold between 100 and 250 securities.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests in small- and mid-capitalization domestic equity securities based on the advisor's assessment of the relative return potential of the securities. The advisor selects securities that it believes offer an appropriate balance between strong growth prospects and reasonable valuations relative to their industry peers. The advisor does this by using a quantitative process to evaluate all of the securities in the benchmark, the MSCI US Small + Mid Cap 2200 Index, while seeking to maintain a risk profile similar to that of the index. At least 80% of its assets will be invested in equity securities.
The investment seeks investment results before fees and expenses that track the Sabrient Multi-Cap Insider/Analyst Quant-Weighted Index. The fund, under normal circumstances, invests at least 80% of its assets in the equity securities that comprise the Sabrient Multi-Cap Insider/Analyst Quant-Weighted Index. The index is composed of 100 stocks selected from the S&P 1500® by Sabrient Systems LLC using a quantitative methodology. It is non-diversified.

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.
