Fund Description

The Homestead Small Company Stock Fund (HSCSX) is an actively managed fund that aims to capitalize on the pricing inefficiencies of the domestic small-cap market space as represented by the Russell 2000. HSCSX uses various fundamental metrics to screen for value stocks that are either trading for low prices or are in the process of major turnarounds or changes. The fund is relatively concentrated and there is no sector requirement for HSCSX.

Given the fund’s active management and focus on riskier small-caps, HSCSX is ideal as a subcore or satellite position in a broader portfolio.
