DESCRIPTION: The Sabrient Defensive Equity UIT Series seeks to find companies that Sabrient believes are positioned to perform well in environments of falling stock prices but give solid performance in rising markets.
The portfolio consists of approximately 50 stocks. selected by with a comprehensive strategy developed by Sabrient, which includes the Sabrient/Gradient Earnings Quality Rank ( EQR), our proprietary forensic accounting factor. EQR measures the aggressiveness of accounting for each company, and stocks that score in the bottom two deciles of this score are eliminated in an effort to avoid companies that could be overstating or even “creating” the reported growth.
