Principal Investment Strategy

The Sponsor, with the assistance of Guggenheim Partners Investment Management, LLC ("GPIM"), an affiliate of Guggenheim Partners, LLC, has selected the securities to be included in the Trust’s portfolio. The Sponsor and GPIM believe that companies that distribute significant dividends on a consistent basis demonstrate strong financial strength and positive performance relative to their peers.

Selection Criteria

The Trust’s portfolio is constructed and the securities were selected approximately ten business days prior to the initial date of deposit (the “Inception Date”) using the Security Selection Rules outlined below.

Security Selection Rules:

In constructing the Trust’s portfolio, 50 securities will be selected based on the following fundamentally based quantitative criteria:

  • Begin with all securities in the S&P 1500 Composite Index.
  • Each security in the index is scored based within its respective sector on the three financial factors listed below using a scale of 1 through 10 (1 representing the highest ranked 10% in the sector, and 10 representing the lowest ranked 10% in the sector):
    • Return on assets
    • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) / Enterprise value
    • Sales per share growth
  • Exclude securities included in the S&P 500 Index.
  • Exclude securities which do not pay a regular dividend.
  • Exclude securities with an average daily price volume less than $600,000 over the prior 20 trading days.
  • Exclude securities with market capitalizations less than $200 million.
  • Exclude securities that have a pending cash-only merger and acquisition or other corporate action events which will lead to the delisting of the security from the qualifying exchange listed above.
  • Exclude securities with the lowest 25% combined financial scores on the above three financial factors.
  • Rank the remaining stocks by dividend yield from highest to lowest.
  • Select an approximately equally weighted portfolio of the 50 stocks with the highest dividend yield and maximum sector and industry weightings of 20% and 10%, respectively, as of the selection date. Please note that due to the fluctuating nature of security prices, the weighting of an individual security or sector in the Trust portfolio may change after the portfolio selection date.

The S&P Composite 1500 Index combines three leading indices - S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 - to form an investable benchmark of the U.S. equity market. Covering approximately 85% of the U.S. market capitalization, S&P Composite 1500 offers investors an index with the familiar characteristics of the S&P 500 but with broader market exposure.

The S&P 500 Index is a capitalization-weighted index of 500 stocks. The index is designed to measure performance of the broad domestic economy through changes in the aggregate market value of 500 stocks representing all major industries. Indexes are unmanaged and it is not possible to invest directly in an index.

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.
  • Due to the current state of the economy, the value of the securities held by the Trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers. Starting in December 2007, economic activity declined across all sectors of the economy, and most countries experienced increased unemployment. The economic crisis affected the global economy with European and Asian markets also suffering historic losses. Extraordinary steps have been taken by the governments of several leading countries to combat the economic crisis; however, the impact of these measures is not yet fully known and cannot be predicted.
  • Share prices or dividend rates on the securities in the Trust may decline during the life of the Trust. There is no guarantee 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 includes real estate investment trusts (“REITs”). REITs may concentrate their investments in specific geographic areas or in specific property types, such as, hotels, shopping malls, residential complexes and office buildings. The value of the REITs and other real estate securities and the ability of such securities to distribute income may be adversely affected by several factors, including: rising interest rates; changes in the global and local economic climate and real estate conditions; perceptions of prospective tenants of the safety, convenience and attractiveness of the properties; the ability of the owner to provide adequate management, maintenance and insurance; increased competition from new properties; the impact of present or future environmental legislation and compliance with environmental laws; changes in real estate taxes and other operating expenses; adverse changes in governmental rules and fiscal policies; adverse changes in zoning laws; declines in the value of real estate; the downturn in the subprime mortgage lending market and the real estate market in the United States; and other factors beyond the control of the issuer of the security.
  • The Trust includes securities of companies in the consumer products sector. General risks of companies in the consumer products sector include cyclicality of revenues and earnings, economic recession, currency fluctuations, changing consumer tastes, extensive competition, product liability litigation and increased government regulation. A weak economy and its effect on consumer spending would adversely affect companies in the consumer products sector.
  • The Trust invests in securities issued by small-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies. These securities customarily involve more investment risk than securities of larger capitalization companies. Small-capitalization and 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.

Please see the Trust prospectus for more complete risk information.
