All investing involves risk, including the risk of loss. The views and opinions expressed may change based on market and other conditions. They are subject to change at any time based on market and other conditions. There can be no assurance that developments will transpire as forecasted. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Unlike passive investments, there are no indexes that an active investment attempts to track or replicate. Thus, the ability of an active investment to achieve its objectives will depend on the effectiveness of the investment manager.

Intrinsic value is the value of a company, based on the net present value of forecasted cash flows such as future earnings or dividends.

Value investing carries the risk that a security can continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time.
