Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets. The performance of any single portfolio holding is no indication of the performance of other portfolio holdings. A value investment strategy seeks undervalued stocks that show a strong potential for growth. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which a value strategy invests may be based on incorrect assumptions or estimations, may be affected by declining fundamentals or external forces, and may never be recognized by the broader market. Investing in small cap and mid-cap stocks is more risky and more volatile than investing in large cap stocks. The intrinsic value of a stock may never be recognized by the broader market.
References to stocks being “cheap” means that it is the speaker’s opinion that such stocks are selling at significant discounts to the speaker’s estimate of such stocks’ private market value. It, also, does not suggest that the stocks mentioned will generate favorable results.
