Fund Description
The Fund will seek investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund s fees and expenses) of an equity index called the NASDAQ AlphaDEX Large Cap Growth Index (the Index ). The Index is a modified equal dollar-weighted index developed and maintained by The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. that is designed to generate positive alpha relative to traditional passive-style indices through the use of the AlphaDEX selection methodology. The NASDAQ AlphaDEX Large Cap Growth Index is an enhanced index created and administered by Nasdaq, Inc. ( Nasdaq ) which employs the AlphaDEX stock selection methodology to select stocks from the NASDAQ US 500 Large Cap Growth Index that meet certain criteria. Nasdaq constructs the NASDAQ AlphaDEX Large Cap Growth Index by ranking the eligible stocks from the NASDAQ US 500 Large Cap Index on growth factors including 3-, 6- and 12- month price appreciation, sales to price and one year sales growth, and separately on value factors including book value to price, cash flow to price and return on assets. All stocks are ranked on the sum of ranks for the growth factors and, separately, all stocks are ranked on the sum of ranks for the value factors. A stock must have data for all growth and/or value factors to receive a rank for that style. Each stock receives either its growth or value score as it s selection score based on it s style designation as determined by Nasdaq. The top 187 stocks based on the selection score determined in the previous step comprise the selected stocks . The selected stocks are divided into quintiles based on their rankings and the top ranked quintiles receive a higher weight within the index. The stocks are equally-weighted within each quintile. The index is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
