CECPTX European Capital Strength Portfolio
The trust seeks to provide total return through capital appreciation. No assurance can be given that the trust’s investment objective will be achieved.
Under normal circumstances, the trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in common stocks of European companies. The trust invests in a portfolio of European companies that the sponsor believes have had strong valuations, returns on capital and balance sheets. To determine whether a company has an attractive valuation, the sponsor compares valuation metrics against the selected company’s peer group. Strong returns on capital are evidenced by the company’s return on capital compared to the selected company’s peer group. Companies with strong balance sheets are typically those entities that are less levered than their peers. The trust's investment process is designed to favor strong cash flow generating companies that trade at reasonable multiples of their excess profits.
Cumulative returns of each unit investment trust series are based on distributions received in cash and recognized on the ex-dividend date and paid out on the payable date during the life of the unit investment trust. Returns are calculated excluding the Transactional Sales Charge for each unit investment trust series but does reflect the Creation & Development Fee and trust operating expenses as incurred for each unit investment trust series. The returns do not adjust for taxes. If adjusted or taxes, the effects of taxation would reduce the performance depicted.
Past performance is no indicator of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. An investment in units of a unit investment trust when redeemed may be worth more or less than the original investment.
