Mairs & Power Growth Fund Has Out-Performed 4 of the Last 6 Full Economic Cycles

When Mairs & Power talks about the advantages of holding through a “full economic market cycle,” we are referring to the business cycle fluctuation between contraction and expansion, also called recession and recovery. Investors who enjoy growth opportunities during times of expansion must consider and prepare for times when the economy inevitably contracts. Mairs & Power’s portfolios are designed with the intent to help preserve capital over full cycles.

The periods in this chart are called “trough to trough.” The beginning point of each period marks the start of a recovery following a recession. During the period, a “peak” is reached and then another contraction begins. The end of the period marks the low point prior to the next recovery starting, and is also referred to as a “trough.”

A recessionary period is a period of significant decline in widespread economic activity spread lasting more than a few months, normally visible in real GDP (Gross Domestic Product), real income, employment, industrial production and wholesale-retail sales.

IMPORTANT RISKS

The Mairs & Power Funds are designed for long-term investors. Equity investments are subject to market fluctuations and the Funds' share prices can fall because of weakness in the broad market, a particular industry or specific holdings. Investments in small and midcap companies generally are more volatile. International investing risks include among others political, social or economic instability, difficulty in predicting international trade patterns, taxation, and foreign trading practices and greater fluctuations in price than U.S. corporations.

About Morningstar

Morningstar Large Blend Category: Large-blend portfolios are fairly representative of the overall US stock market in size, growth rates and price. Stocks in the top 70% of the capitalization of the US equity market are defined as large cap. The blend style is assigned to portfolios where neither growth nor value characteristics predominate. These portfolios tend to invest across the spectrum of US industries, and owing to their broad exposure, the portfolios' returns are often similar to those of the S&P 500 Index.

The Morningstar Rating for funds, or star rating, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed end funds, and separate accounts) with at least three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receives 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating, 40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns and 50% 10-year rating, 30% five-year rating, 20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall rating formula seems to give the most weight for the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

The Morningstar Analyst Rating™ is not a credit or risk rating. It is a subjective evaluation performed by Morningstar’s manager research group, which consists of various Morningstar, Inc. subsidiaries (“Manager Research Group”). In the United States, that subsidiary is Morningstar Research Services LLC, which is registered with and governed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The Manager Research Group evaluates funds based on five key pillars, which are process, performance, people, parent, and price. The Manager Research Group uses this five pillar evaluation to determine how they believe funds are likely to perform relative to a benchmark, or in the case of exchange-traded funds and index mutual funds, a relevant peer group, over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. They consider quantitative and qualitative factors in their research, and the weight of each pillar may vary. 

The Analyst Rating scale is Gold, Silver, Bronze, Neutral, and Negative. A Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, Silver, or Bronze reflects the Manager Research Group’s conviction in a fund’s prospects for outperformance. Analyst Ratings ultimately reflect the Manager Research Group’s overall assessment, are overseen by an Analyst Rating Committee, and are continuously monitored and reevaluated at least every 14 months. For more detailed information about Morningstar’s Analyst Rating, including its methodology, please go to global.morningstar.com/managerdisclosures/.

The Morningstar Analyst Rating (i) should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a fund, (ii) involves unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause Analyst expectations not to occur or to differ significantly from what they expected, and (iii) should not be considered an offer or solicitation to buy or sell the fund.

The Morningstar Rankings represent a fund’s total-return rank relative to all funds that have the same Morningstar Category. The highest percentile rank is 1 and the lowest is 100. It is based on Morningstar total return, which includes both income and capital gains or losses and is not adjusted for sales charges or redemption fees.

1No load/Sales charge: You pay no sales charge for the purchase or sale of Fund shares and no 12b-1 marketing fees. You will, however, incur expenses for investment advisory, management and administrative services, which are included in annual fund operating expenses.

5Turnover ratio: The turnover ratio or turnover rate is the percentage of a mutual fund or other portfolio’s holdings that have been replaced in a given year (calendar year or whatever 12-month period represents the fund’s fiscal year).

6Active share: a measure of the percentage of stock holdings in a manager’s portfolio that differs from the benchmark index. Typically, managers with high Active Share outperform their benchmark indexes and Active Share tends to predict fund performance.

7Sharpe ratio: A measure that indicates the average return minus the risk-free return divided by the standard deviation of return on an investment.

8Net Asset Value (NAV) Per Share. 

9Weighted average market capitalization is determined by multiplying the current market price by the number of outstanding shares and then taking an average to determine weighting. 

1030-day SEC yield reflects the dividends and interest earned during the period after the deduction of the Fund's expenses. It may help investors estimate income, expressed as a percentage. 

Upper Midwest includes Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Capitalization categories as defined by Mairs & Power: Large Cap - greater than $10 Billion; Mid Cap - $2B to $10B; Small Cap - less than $2B.
