Earnings Growth

  • Additional attributes Small cap
  • Strategy Stocks
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.  The portfolio may hold a proportion in cash when the model provides a bearish signal.
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.
None.

Important Information

  1. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
  2. 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".
  3. Average client returns are calculated by Covestor and are composed of the asset-weighted average 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, and earnings distributions, and reflect the deduction of Covestor advisory fees, brokerage and other commissions and expenses actually paid by clients.
  4. 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.
  5. The performance charts are provided for informational purposes only, and should not be used as the basis for making an investment decision. Variables such as corporate actions or foreign exchange may affect daily performance displays. 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.
  6. Benchmark returns have been calculated by Covestor using a time-weighted calculation of daily index valuations. More
  7. Leverage indicates the level of margin utilized and is calculated by dividing gross exposure by portfolio net liquidation value.
  8. All Portfolio Manager information including personal data, profiles, strategies, monthly investment reports, and historical results outside of Covestor has been provided by the Portfolio Manager. Covestor makes no representation or warranty of its accuracy, completeness or relevance and it does not represent the opinions of Covestor. Transaction history is available upon request. Portfolio classifications are provided by Covestor, and are intended to serve as a general guide.
  9. Not all transactions listed will appear in your account due to Covestor's trading rules and individual client constraints. Eligibility of these securities is monitored periodically, and may change over time. Actual client investment holdings may vary.
  10. Index returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or expenses. Individuals cannot invest directly in an Index. For certain portfolios we use an investable ETF as a benchmark, in these cases returns include management fees, transaction costs and expenses.
  11. This portfolio uses short selling. Short selling is more complex than simply owning securities, involves a high degree of risk, is highly speculative, and is not suitable for all investors. The risk of loss associated with short selling is virtually unlimited. Short selling may also involve additional expenses and risks, including hard-to-borrow stock charges and buy-in risk. You should only select a portfolio using short selling if you are comfortable with the level of risk involved in short selling.
  12. This portfolio uses borrowed funds or leverage to fund investments. Leverage involves a high degree of risk, is highly speculative, and is not suitable for all investors. Leverage increases both the amount you may lose and the amount you may make in a portfolio, leading to higher returns in the case of favorable market movements but also larger losses under adverse market conditions. You may also incur additional expenses associated with borrowing funds. You should only select a portfolio using leverage if you are comfortable with the level of risk involved in using leverage.
