Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust consists of a diversified portfolio of dividend-paying equity securities. The Sponsor believes that dividends are often a good indicator of a corporation’s current financial condition and, furthermore, may signal management’s belief in a profitable future for the corporation. Investors seeking to return to the often volatile equity markets may consider the income available from a group of dividend-paying securities as a logical first step toward reentry into such markets. However, there can be no assurance that any security held by the Trust will meet the Trust’s objective. As a result of this strategy, the Trust invests significantly in the financial sector.
The Sponsor selects domestically-traded companies that it believes are core holdings of a diversified dividend-paying portfolio. To select the portfolio the Sponsor follows a disciplined process which includes both quantitative screening and qualitative analysis. The Sponsor begins with the companies currently in the Russell 3000® Index and identifies a universe of securities with higher indicated dividend yields than their average counterpart within the same Global Industry Classification Standards (“GICS”) sector. From this universe of approximately 400 companies, the Sponsor identifies companies for inclusion in the portfolio through a qualitative analysis, which may be primarily based on, but not limited to, the following factors:
• Cash-flow Adequacy. The Sponsor favors companies with recent earnings, operating cash-flow, and free cashflow significantly higher than the dividends paid.
• Balance Sheet. The Sponsor favors companies that possess overall financial strength and exhibit balance sheet improvements relative to their peers and the marketplace.
• Valuation. The Sponsor favors companies whose valuations appear to be attractive based on measures such as price-to-earnings, price-to-book and price-to-cash flow.
• Industry Leadership. The Sponsor favors companies that possess a strong competitive position among their domestic and global peers.
• Growth. The Sponsor favors companies with a history of (and prospects for) above average growth of dividends, sales and earnings.
For the final step the Sponsor weights the selected securities such that the portfolio has no more than approximately 20% of its net assets (as of the date of deposit) in any one given GICS sector. Please note that due to the fluctuating nature of security prices, the weighting of a sector in the Trust portfolio may change after the date of deposit.
The Sponsor believes that one factor that may provide increased returns for shareholders over long periods of time is dividend reinvestment. Reinvesting dividends has historically had a significant compounding effect on investor returns. However, there is no guarantee that dividend reinvestment will have such a compounding effect on investor returns in the future.
Definition: The Russell 3000 Index measures the performance of the largest 3000 U.S. companies representing approximately 98% of the investable U.S. equity market.
Risks and Other Considerations
As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Trust. No assurance can be given that the Trust’s investment objective will be achieved. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these:
• Securities prices can be volatile. The value of your investment may fall over time. Market value fluctuates in response to various factors. These can include stock market movements, purchases or sales of securities by the Trust, government policies, litigation, and changes in interest rates, inflation, the financial condition of the securities’ issuer or even perceptions of the issuer. Units of the Trust are not deposits of any bank and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
• Share prices or dividend rates on the securities in the Trust may decline during the life of the Trust. There is no guarantee that share prices of the securities in the Trust will not decline and that the issuers of the securities will declare dividends in the future and, if declared, whether they will remain at current levels or increase over time.
• The Trust invests significantly in the financial sector. As a result, the factors that impact the financial sector will likely have a greater effect on this Trust than on a more broadly diversified Trust. Companies in the financial sector include banks, insurance companies and investment firms. The profitability of companies in the financial sector is largely dependent upon the availability and cost of capital which may fluctuate significantly in response to changes in interest rates and general economic developments. Financial sector companies are especially subject to the adverse effects of economic recession, decreases in the availability of capital, volatile interest rates, portfolio concentrations in geographic markets and in commercial and residential real estate loans, and competition from new entrants in their fields of business.
• The Trust invests in securities issued by mid-capitalization companies. These securities customarily involve more investment risk than securities of large-capitalization companies. Mid-capitalization companies may have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be more vulnerable to adverse general market or economic developments.
• Inflation may lead to a decrease in the value of assets or income from investments.
• The Sponsor does not actively manage the portfolio. The Trust will generally hold, and may, when creating additional units, continue to buy, the same securities even though a security’s outlook, market value or yield may have changed.
