BEHIND THE NAV Morningstar Style Box Value Large Mid

Small

Core

Growth

Asset allocation It is a nine-square grid. Each column represents an investment style. The first is “value”. A fund marked in this column would pick stocks due to low valuation (low price ratios and high dividend yields) and slow growth (low growth rates for earnings, sales, book value and cash flow). The central column represents “blend” funds, including value, core and growth stocks. The last column is “growth”. A fund in this column would pick stocks of companies that are growing fast (high growth rates for earnings, sales, book value and cash flow) and high valuation (high price ratios and low dividend yields). The rows are the market-cap categories across large-, mid- and small-cap. A fund in row one would buy stocks of large-cap companies and that in the bottom row would buy stocks in small-cap companies. This fund is at the intersection of row one and column three. This means it buys large-cap stocks in growth companies.
