Fund Objectives

The investment objective of the fund is to provide maximum capital growth through shares of small to medium-sized U.S. companies that are experiencing rising stock price momentum and have superior growth potential via accelerating earnings, sales and cash flow. The manager utilizes a bottom-up momentum approach to build a portfolio of stocks with strong upward price movement. The managers believe in buying high and selling higher. They look for stocks with home-run potential rather than slow, steady growers. Turnover in the portfolio is high because losers are sold quickly in the belief that it is better to take a series of small losses in order to avoid big ones. Winners are allowed to run.
