Description
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital; current income is a secondary objective. The fund invests substantially all of the fund's net assets in common stocks. Under normal circumstances, the Adviser invests at least 80% of the fund's assets in common stocks and other equity securities of mid-sized companies (the "80% Policy"). While the fund is actively managed by the Adviser, the Adviser relies primarily on the rankings of companies by the Value Line Timeliness™ Ranking System (the "Ranking System") in selecting securities for purchase or sale.
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund pursues its investment objective by investing primarily in common stocks selected for their growth potential, and normally invests at least 50% of its equity assets in medium-sized companies. Medium-sized companies are those whose market capitalization falls within the range of companies in the Russell Midcap® Growth Index. Market capitalization is a commonly used measure of the size and value of a company. It may also invest in foreign securities, which may include investments in emerging markets.
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.

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.
