Christian Small Cap GARP


The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of stocks that meet Christian guidelines and that are expected to show future growth at a reasonable price. The Fund seeks to achieve a strong outperformance against its Benchmark of the Russell 2000 Growth Index in both up and down markets at less risk than the Benchmark. The initial selection universe is the Russell 2000 Index from which we exclude stocks less than $5 and stocks that do not meet Christian guidelines, employing the screens developed by the Conference of Catholic Bishops. We also exclude all stocks that are not reasonably priced, as measured by their forward-looking PE Ratio. We then select stocks with good price momentum that show strong Earnings Pressure, a proprietary measure of revisions in analysts' estimates of future earnings. The quantitative stock selection process is disciplined and objective, so that there is no style drift over time. The Fund is tax efficient for taxable investors.
