Strong Foundation Portfolio
Our Core Fund
Choosing stocks can be a difficult task for an individual investor. Many investors do not have access to the necessary resources it takes to do in-depth research and analysis. When evaluating stocks, research analysts use many different metrics, such as price-to-earnings ratio, debt-toequity ratio, return on equity, and dividend yield, to name a few. Of course, research analysts also take into account the markets, current economic conditions and their thoughts about the future prospects for a stock.
