The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation through investments in the common stock of small and mid-capitalization companies. The fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of small and mid-sized ("small-mid") capitalization companies. The adviser defines small-mid capitalization companies as those whose market capitalizations, at the time of purchase, are consistent with the market capitalizations of companies in the Russell 2500® Index.
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund, under normal market conditions, invests primarily in common stock of U.S. companies that are selected for their long-term appreciation potential. To a significantly lesser extent, it may invest in fixed income securities (including debt securities that could be viewed as "junk bonds") and securities of foreign issuers, including issuers in emerging markets using the same fundamental research approach based on quality and price. The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests in common stocks of companies of any size market capitalization- small, medium or large. Although not a primary investment strategy, the fund may engage in short-sale transactions with respect to 25% of its net assets. It may also invest in money market instruments and may, from time to time, purchase put and call options on U.S. traded stocks or security indices. The fund may also sell options and write "covered" put and call options.

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.
