CASH IS KING

CASH IS KING

Profitable R&D companies are generally more resilient in times of duress given their self-sufficiency to fund ongoing operations.

COST OF CAPITAL

COST OF CAPITAL

As the cost of capital rises with tighter monetary policy, company cash reserves have rapidly depleted relative to debt since 2021; profitable R&D companies are generally better positioned to service existing debts and less reliant on external financing, which has become more expensive.

Performance

Performance History

Premium Discount Chart

Performance is shown on a total return basis (i.e., with gross income reinvested, where applicable). Cumulative return is the aggregate amount that an investment has gained or lost over time. Annualized return is the average return gained or lost by an investment each year over a given time period.
The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. High short- term performance, when observed, is unusual and investors should not expect such performance to be repeated.
