Weighted Average Market Capitalization: Market capitalization refers to the total market value of each company’s outstanding shares. The Weighted Average Market Capitalization for a portfolio is calculated as the average market capitalization of the stocks within the portfolio, weighted by the amount of each stock owned. Unweighted Median Market Capitalization: This calculation represents the median market capitalization of the stocks in the portfolio, regardless of the amount of each stock owned. P/E (Price/Earnings) Ratio: This ratio is a measure of valuation. It relates the price of the stock to the earnings per share (EPS) of the company. A stock with a higher P/E ratio would be considered more expensive relative to another stock with a lower P/E. An investor may pay a higher P/E for a stock for several reasons including, but not limited to, an expectation that the company possesses higher returns on invested capital, less economic sensitivity, higher consistency of earnings and/or higher earnings growth potential. Data is calculated in FactSet. EPS (Earnings Per Share) Growth Rate (Projected): This measure represents the weighted average of forecasted growth in earnings expected to be experienced by the stocks within the portfolio over the next 3-5 years. From a portfolio perspective, the portfolio P/E ratio and EPS Growth Rate are weighted averages of the individual holdings’ P/E ratios and EPS Growth Rates. Data is calculated in FactSet. Trailing 1-Year Turnover: This figure reflects the portfolio’s trading activity by calculating the amount of the portfolio’s holdings bought or sold over the prior year, expressed as a percentage of the portfolio’s average market value. Turnover figures may be related to the amount of trading costs experienced by the portfolio. Standard Deviation: A measure of the portfolio’s risk. A higher standard deviation represents a greater dispersion of returns, and thus, a greater amount of risk. Standard deviation returns shown are annualized and calculated using monthly returns. Funds without a 10-year history are reported against the Fund’s inception date. If the Fund’s inception date does not fall on the first day of a given month, the annualized standard deviation is calculated based on the first day of the month following the Fund’s inception date.
