Q3 2013 | Quarterly Fact Sheet

CAN SLIM is a system of stock analysis introduced by William ONeil, founder of Investors Business Daily newspaper, and author of the best-selling book: How to Make Money in Stocks. ONeil carefully analyzed the top-performing stocks dating back to 1953 and identified 7 characteristics they all shared:
Fundamental

C = Current Earnings per share up 20% or more. A = Annual Earnings increasing 25% or more each year for 3 years. N = New products, services, and/or management team. S L I M = = = = Supply and Demand of Shares: Price moves should be supported with increasing volume. Leadership: Winning stocks come from leading industries. Institutional Sponsorship: Large institutions and mutual funds own it and are increasing their stake. Market Direction: 3 of 4 stocks follow the market direction, so invest during bull market trends.

Investment Objective
The CAN SLIM Investment Program is a long-term growth strategy focused on capital appreciation. The portfolio adheres to a flexible investment mandate that allows for tactical allocation shifts that range between 100% invested in stocks all the way to 100% invested in cash. Historically, this tactical approach has reduced portfolio volatility and helped to protect investment capital from widespread losses in extreme bear markets.

Past or current results do not guarantee future performance. All investments involve risk, including loss of principal. Further, the principal value of an investment will fluctuate; thus investors equity when liquidated may be worth more or less than its original cost. This document provides only impersonal advice and statistical data and is not intended to meet objectives or suitability requirements of any specific account. The CAN SLIM Investment Program is a long-term growth portfolio that invests in CAN SLIM stocks as markets are rising and scales to cash as markets weaken. Its objective is capital appreciation. The chart above shows the total return, including reinvestment of all dividends, and net of commissions and applicable investment advisory fees. Prior to December 31, 2005 the results were generated using back tested results of a hypothetical portfolio managed in accordance with the dictates of the Program. From December 31, 2005 through December 31, 2009 the performance shown is that of a single-account composite account managed according to the dictates of the Program. Since 2010, performance has been prepared based on widely accepted performance standards and represents the net composite time-weighted return for the program. The S&P 500 was used for comparison purposes as it represents a sample of the 500 leading companies in leading industries of the U.S economy. It is generally considered a proxy for the total market. Past performance is not a guarantee of future profits. A fuller description regarding performance calculations will be found on the next page.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future profits. The following disclosures are provided to conform to regulatory requirements regarding the limitations of hypothetical and single account composite performance reporting. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results, all of which can adversely affect actual trading results. Single account composite performance results reflect the results of actual trading using a single client account managed in accordance with the dictates of the program. Other accounts are excluded to prevent additions, withdrawals and client mandated customizations from biasing the performance results. However actual client accounts are not insulated from these factors. Therefore actual client accounts may have experienced investment results during the corresponding time periods that were materially different from those portrayed in the model. Account statements for the single account for the period are available for inspection at our offices upon request.
