The Oberweis Focused International Growth Fund’s investment objective is to maximize long-term capital appreciation.
The Fund invests principally in the common stocks of companies that Oberweis considers to have above-average long-term growth potential and the potential to exceed consensus analyst expectations. The Fund invests, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets in the securities of companies based outside the United States. The Fund selects companies based on, among other things, its fundamental analysis of individual securities. Oberweis’ fundamental analysis entails an evaluation of an individual company’s future growth prospects, financial statement analysis, stock valuation in relation to OAM’s estimate of future earnings and cash flows, evaluation of competitive product or service offerings, future research and development pipeline and management interviews. Oberweis’ strategy for the Fund is concentrated and will generally hold the securities of 25 – 40 companies. There are no restrictions on the capitalizations of companies whose securities the Fund may buy; however, the Fund generally invests in the stocks of medium and larger capitalization companies with market capitalizations of more than $5 billion at the time of investment. The Fund may also invest in securities of countries in developed and developing (or emerging) markets.
