The Earnings Growth Portfolio buys stocks that have reported positive earnings surprises relative to analyst estimates and received subsequent positive earnings estimate revisions. It seeks to find stocks that the manager believes are likely to report earnings surprises that may help to drive the stocks higher.
Stocks are sold when they no longer exhibit high earning revisions and high earning surprises relative to other growth stocks.
Hengfu invests in both U.S. stocks and foreign companies that are listed on U.S. exchanges.
Hengfu’s computer algorithm-based strategy attempts to take advantage of stocks that may be mispriced. It seeks to buy the stocks that his research suggests are undervalued and sell the ones that he considers to be overvalued.
The Earnings Growth Portfolio uses a proprietary computer algorithm designed to maximize gains and minimize risks. This approach seeks to remove human emotion and buy-sell biases from the investing process.
This diversified portfolio typically holds about 25 stocks with an annual portfolio turnover rate between 100% and 200% under normal market conditions.
Stocks are sold when they no longer exhibit high earning revisions and high earning surprises relative to other growth stocks. They are then replaced with stocks that have stronger earning revisions and higher earning surprises.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Performance of the portfolio manager's account is calculated by Covestor on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions and broker commissions. Manager returns include trades and positions that fail Covestor's trading rules, as a result, actual client returns will differ. Covestor advisory fees are simulated and applied retro-actively to present the portfolio return "net-of-fees".
Average client returns are calculated by Covestor and are composed of the average, time-weighted returns of all active client investments (some of which may contain investment restrictions) to the underlying portfolio. These daily average returns are then linked together for the timeframe presented. These returns include cash, dividends, earnings distributions, brokerage commissions and Covestor advisory fees.
All graph data is as of the end of day for the referenced period, unless otherwise specified. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to follow a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by Covestor, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
The performance charts are provided for informational purposes only, and should not be used as the basis for making an investment decision.

We rely on mathematical formulas, computer programs, and pricing information from third-party vendors to provide these returns. Neither Covestor nor any of its data or content providers shall be liable for any errors in this information or any actions taken by you in reliance upon this information.
Benchmark returns have been calculated by Covestor using a time-weighted calculation of daily index valuations. Benchmarks presented are total return and therefore inclusive of cash, dividends and earnings distributions but not transaction costs.
