Small Cap Opportunities
Small Cap Opportunities is a disciplined investment approach for investing in the small capitalization sector of the equities market. We invest in firms with market capitalizations that are within the range of the Russell 2000 Index.
We select companies with solid earnings growth prospects from a universe of low P/E stocks that are underfollowed which provides excellent performance potential at lower risk. This common sense philosophy is the heart of Small Cap Opportunities’ Small Cap Value equity approach.
We employ a fundamental, bottom-up methodology characterized by three factors: 1) A value-oriented approach: We select stocks with low P/E ratios based on trailing, not forecasted, earnings. 2) Attention to earnings: We seek companies with attractive earnings growth outlooks. 3) A focus on underfollowed, neglected, out-of-favor stocks: Through intensive research, we find good companies that are overlooked or not widely followed.

Interest income is recorded on the accrual basis. Performance results for the index includes reinvested dividends but, unlike the strategy’s returns, do not reflect the payment of sales commissions or other expenses incurred in the purchase or sale of the securities included in the index. The performance data quoted represents past performance and current returns may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal will fluctuate so that an investor’s portfolio, when liquidated, may be worth less than the original cost/balance. As with any investment, there is a potential risk of loss. Smaller and medium-sized company stocks are more volatile and less liquid than larger, more established company securities.
