Sabrient Baker's Dozen Portfolio for June 2019 Launched 

Santa Barbara, CA – June 20, 2019:  Sabrient Systems announced the launch of June 2019 Bakers' Dozen UIT Portfolio (Ticker: FJNGOX), the 34rd in the Baker's Dozen series.  This portfolio will terminate on July 21, 2020. 

The strategy for the Baker's Dozen Portfolio is developed by Sabrient and licensed to First Trust Portfolios for marketing.  The portfolio  invests in 13 top-ranked stocks that represent a cross-section of industries that Sabrient believes are positioned to perform well in the coming year. They are GARP stocks – stocks that Sabrient believes represent growth at a reasonable price. The stocks are meant to be held for the full 13-month term of the trust.

The strategy includes the Sabrient/Gradient Earnings Quality Rank (EQR Rank), a proprietary forensic accounting factor that ranks the conservatism of a company’s accounting. Companies with aggressive accounting practices are penalized in the rankings, while companies with overly aggressive accounting practices are eliminated in an effort to avoid companies that could be overstating or even “creating” the reported growth.

The Baker's Dozen Series was initially licensed to First Trust Portfolios in 2013, with a portfolio published annually thereafter in January. In 2015, a mid-year Baker's Dozen portfolio was added in August, and in April 2017, the Baker's Dozen portfolios began publishing monthly. You can see a list of all Baker's Dozen UIT portfolios here with links to their performance pages on First Trust Portfolios.
