Why Follow US Growth?

With US Growth, you get the combination of two of our popular systematic portfolios; US Value which uses fundamental factors, and US Momentum which uses technical factors. We hold the top-ranked seven stocks from each portfolio, giving you the benefit of both.

We developed this portfolio to make it easier for investors wanting to use US Value and US Momentum together as a growth portfolio with a similar return profile but lower short-term volatility than the individual portfolios.


How do I Follow US Growth?

We’ve designed this portfolio to be easy to follow with these steps:

  1. Buy: Buy the stocks in the table in equal weights. Weights can drift over time as stock prices move, but we will only recommend re-balancing stock weights if they stray too far from the target weight. The stock volumes are based on a $5,000 investment per stock.
    Note: For this portfolio, stock prices are in US dollars. In order to get the Australian dollar value, you will need to apply the current exchange rate.
  2. Re-balancing: When you subscribe to this portfolio, you will receive the re-balancing notification once a month which provides an updated list of stocks. You sell any stocks that are no longer on the list. After these stocks are sold, the new stocks from the current table can be bought.

Please note that the underlining portfolios remain unchanged and those members who wish to continue to follow the 10 stock portfolios can consult the portfolios at any time.


US Growth Benefits from Two Premium Portfolio Strategies

ASX Momentum ASX Value
Based purely on the performance of the stock’s share price. We take advantage of the “momentum effect” by buying the top 10 momentum stocks which are a member of either the S&P100 or the Nasdaq100. This portfolio sources a pool of large-capitalization US stocks based on two key financial metrics; Return on Capital Employed (ROCE), and Earnings Sustainability. The final portfolio is generated by ranking on dividend yield. The lower the yield, the higher the ranking.
