Portfolio Statistics

Beta (3 Yr) measures the magnitude of a portfolio's past share-price fluctuations in relation to the ups and downs of the overall market (or appropriate market index). If a security has a beta greater than 1, that security's price can be expected to be more volatile than the market.

EPS Growth (1 Yr Forecast) is the rate at which earnings per share of the Fund's equity holdings are projected to grow during the upcoming twelve months. This forecast is not indicative of the fund's future performance.

P/E Ratio (1 Yr Forecast) is the average fund equity holding's price divided by its forecasted earnings per share for the next 12-month period.

Price/Book is the ratio of the Fund's equity holdings to the company's net assets.

Return on Equity (5 Yr Average) relates the Fund's profitability to its equity holdings. A high ROE indicates that the portfolio is invested in companies that historically have been quite profitable, though care should be taken when using this number because it can be impacted, positively or negatively, by how much the Fund's assets are financed with debt as opposed to equity.
