Description
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests in a portfolio of stocks across the capitalization spectrums that are considered by the advisor to be undervalued. At the advisor's discretion, the portfolio may, at times, be relatively concentrated. Undervalued stocks are generally those that are out of favor with investors and currently trading at prices that the advisor feels are below what the stocks are worth compared with potential earnings, asset values, and/or dividends. These stocks may or may not pay dividends.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that correspond to the total return of stocks of mid-capitalization United States companies. The fund invests normally at least 80% of assets in securities included in the Russell Midcap® Index. It lends securities to earn income.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the Russell Midcap® Equal Weight Index (the "underlying index"). The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in the component securities that comprise the underlying index. The underlying index is designed to provide equal-weighted exposure to approximately 800 securities of medium sized companies in the larger U.S. equity market.

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.
