Naylor & Company Core Composite℠ includes all fee-paying and non-fee-paying portfolios managed to a strategy of finding growth at a good price. Naylor & Company Investments, LLC (“Naylor & Company”) uses a quality, focused portfolio of stocks seeking to generate returns above those of the overall U.S. stock market over a market cycle. Naylor & Company analyzes the fundamentals of companies (ranging in size from micro-cap to large cap) to find investments with excellent long-term earnings growth prospects, but with stock prices that, in our opinion, are good relative to their expected earnings growth rates. Naylor & Company also invests in selected turnaround and cyclical companies. In April 2013, Naylor & Company began investing in certain warrants.  Investments in warrants have not, and will not, exceed 10% of portfolio values. Portfolios within the composite are concentrated, holding approximately 30-50 securities, so returns may have a lower correlation with the overall stock market, and may exhibit higher volatility than the overall stock market. The benchmark presented is the S&P 500 Total Return (TR) Index, which is shown as a market indicator, for comparative purposes only.  The minimum account size for this composite is $20,000. The Composite was created December 2013.


In presentations shown prior to 12/31/2018, the Russell 3000® Index was shown. The benchmark was changed retroactively due to benchmark provider restrictions and has been replaced with a readily known comparison.
