Guggenheim Launches Blue Chip Value Portfolio

Published

The Advantage of Blue Chips for Value Investing

In constructing the Blue Chip Value Portfolio, Guggenheim analysts conduct fundamental analysis to determine a company’s intrinsic value and identify undervalued stocks by focusing on solid quality metrics such as above average sales, earnings and dividend growth, high profitability, favorable cash flow, and strong competitive industry leadership. The Blue Chip Value Portfolio provides access to 30 quality blue chip companies that, while undervalued now, Guggenheim believes have the strength, size, and competitive position to regain their intrinsic value.

The Blue Chip Value Portfolio, Series 1 is a Unit Investment Trust. 

RISK CONSIDERATIONS: As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Trust. No assurance can be given that the Trust’s investment objective will be achieved. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these: • Securities prices can be volatile. The value of your investment may fall over time. Market value fluctuates in response to various factors. These can include stock market movements, purchases or sales of securities by the Trust, government policies, litigation, and changes in interest rates, inflation, the financial condition of the securities’ issuer or even perceptions of the issuer. Changes in legal, political, regulatory, tax and economic conditions may cause fluctuations in markets and securities prices, which could negatively impact the value of the Trust. Additionally, events such as war, terrorism, natural and environmental disasters and the spread of infectious illnesses or other public health emergencies may adversely affect the economy, various markets and issuers. Recently, the outbreak of a novel and highly contagious form of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) has adversely impacted global commercial activity and contributed to significant volatility in certain markets. Many governments and businesses have instituted quarantines and closures, which has resulted in significant disruption in manufacturing, supply chains, consumer demand and economic activity. The potential impacts are increasingly uncertain, difficult to assess and impossible to predict, and may result in significant losses. Any adverse event could materially and negatively impact the value and performance of trust and the Trust’s ability to achieve its investment objectives. • Share prices or dividend rates on the securities in the Trust may decline during the life of the Trust and there is no guarantee that the issuers of the securities will declare dividends in the future and, if declared, whether they will remain at current levels or increase over time. • The Trust invests in “value” stocks. Value stocks are issued by companies which, based upon their lower than average price/book ratios, are believed to be undervalued or inexpensive relative to other companies in the same industry or the economy as a whole. These common stocks were generally selected on the basis of an issuer’s business and economic fundamentals or the securities’ current and projected credit profiles, relative to current market price. Such securities are subject to the risk of misestimating certain fundamental factors and will generally underperform during periods when value style investments are “out of favor.” • The Trust invests significantly in the financial sector. As a result, the factors that impact the financial sector will likely have a greater effect on this trust than on a more broadly diversified trust. Companies in the financial sector include banks, insurance companies and investment fi rms. The profitability of companies in the financial sector is largely dependent upon the availability and cost of capital which may fluctuate significantly in response to changes in interest rates and general economic developments. Financial sector companies are especially subject to the adverse effects of economic recession, decreases in the availability of capital, volatile interest rates, portfolio concentrations in geographic markets and in commercial and residential real estate loans, and competition from new entrants in their fields of business. • The Trust may be susceptible to potential risks through breaches in cybersecurity. • The Trust is subject to risks arising from various operational factors and their service providers. Operational factors include, but not limited to, human error, processing and communication errors, errors of the Trust’s service providers, counterparties or other third-parties, failed or inadequate processes and technology or systems failures. Additionally, the Trust may be subject to the risk that a service provider may not be willing or able to perform their duties as required or contemplated by their agreements with the Trust. Although the Trust seeks to reduce these operational risks through controls and procedures, there is no way to completely protect against such risks. • Inflation may lead to a decrease in the value of assets or income from investments. Please see the Trust prospectus for more complete risk information.
