The ZPR Volume Winners Strategy invests in micro cap stocks which meet our quantitative criteria for the strategy. This model is composed of four components: low volume, price momentum, a proprietary short interest measure, and our GRAPES valuation model. The strategy has some turnover each quarter as lesser qualified stocks are replaced by newly qualified stocks.

*The Volume Winners Composite consists of accounts that hold U.S. micro cap stocks selected by using ZPR Volume Winners Analysis. This analysis is a quantitative evaluation system incorporating volume, momentum and valuation measures. It includes fully discretionary, management fee-paying and non-management fee-paying accounts including those accounts no longer with the firm. The benchmark for the composite is the Russell 2000 Index, presented in U.S. Dollars.
The composite return is calculated on a size adjusted basis and is presented in US Dollars. Returns are presented net of actual management fees paid, except in the case of non-fee paying accounts where model fees have been imputed. Fees are described in the firm’s ADV part 2. Trade date, not settlement date, is used for all valuations. Returns include all trading expenses and the reinvestment of all income.
Past performance does not guarantee future results. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for a client’s portfolio. Economic factors, market conditions, and investment strategies will affect the performance of any portfolio, and there are no assurances that it will match or outperform any particular benchmark. Historical performance results for benchmarks, such as investment indices and/or categories, generally do not reflect the deduction of transaction and/or custodial charges or the deduction of an investment-management fee, which would have the effect of decreasing historical performance results.
