Catalyst Buyback Strategy Fund

Tickers: BUYIX | BUYAX | BUYCX

Fund Objective

The Fund’s objective is long-term capital appreciation.

Reasons to Invest

Buyback-driven
Stock buybacks have exceeded the value of cash dividends during the past 15 years. Research findings indicate that share buyback announcements provide a compelling signal for potential short-term post-announcement excess returns.

Disciplined Strategy
The investment process utilizes quantitative models to rank buyback announcements based on firm, security and buyback-announcement specific factors. The results are then analyzed to ensure the selected stocks meet our investment guidelines

Low Correlation
Low correlation with most major asset classes historically suggests that the Buyback Strategy can be a satellite growth strategy that complements a long-term core investment plan to help build a diversified portfolio.

There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.

Investing in the Fund carries certain risks. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual security in the Fund’s portfolio. The performance of the Fund may be subject to substantial short term changes. To the extent the Fund invests in the stocks of smaller-sized companies, the Fund may be subject to additional risks, including the risk that earnings and prospects of these companies are more volatile than larger companies. Smaller-sized companies may experience higher failure rates than larger companies and normally have lower trading volume than larger companies. These factors may affect the value of your investment.
