MBOX actively selects dividend-paying companies that the fund advisor believes to be dividend-growers, as determined by a combination of fundamental analysis and quantitative metrics. Starting with the large- and midcap segments of the US equity market, the advisor first measures each securitys intrinsic value based on various fundamentals: price multiples, earnings ratios, and other measures of value relative to the price of the security. Eligible securities are then screened to identify those that have potential for increasing dividend payments over time using quantitative metrics: short- and long-term dividend payment history, free cash flow, dividend growth rate, and other technical factors. Securities are scored based on these processes and the highest ranking stocks are selected for inclusion. The fund will typically hold a concentrated portfolio of 30 to 50 securities which are reviewed on a monthly basis, subject to market movements and fund advisors discretion.
