Description
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund emphasizes stocks which the Investment Adviser believes are undervalued in relation to the business's (or issuer's) long-term earnings power or asset value, or the stock market in general. The advisor intends to invest at least 65% of its total assets in common stocks and equity-related securities (such as convertible debt securities and warrants). It may invest up to 35% of its total assets in debt or fixed income securities, including higher yield, higher risk, lower rated or unrated corporate bonds commonly referred to as "junk bonds."
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in the common stocks of U.S. companies, emphasizing those companies with prospects for rapid earnings growth. It may invest in stocks across all market sectors and market capitalizations and has historically invested significant portions of its assets in mid- and small-capitalization companies.
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.

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.
