Description
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in common stocks of U.S. companies with small to medium market capitalizations (between $250 million and $5 billion) that the adviser believes are selling at a market price below their true value and offer the potential to increase in value. It will generally invest in equity securities of domestic companies, but may also invest in equity securities of foreign companies and American Depositary Receipts.
The investment seeks capital growth over the long term. The fund invests in stocks of established companies selling at prices below what RE Advisers believes to be their fundamental value. Under normal circumstances, it will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowing for investment purposes) in common stocks of companies whose market capitalization, at the time of purchase, is similar to the market capitalization of companies represented in the Russell 2000 Index. To determine whether a stock is undervalued, RE Advisers considers, among other factors, earnings valuations, debt ratios and any competitive advantages a company may have.
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund invests its assets primarily in the equity securities of small-cap companies with stock market capitalizations up to $3 billion that the advisor believes are trading below its estimate of their current worth. Normally, it invests at least 65% of its net assets in the equity securities of such small-cap companies. Although the fund normally focuses on the securities of U.S. companies, it may invest up to 25% of its net assets (measured at the time of investment) in securities of companies headquartered in foreign countries.

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.
