"Returns matter. Downside protection matters." - Vance Howard, Fund Manager
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 19, 2017
Howard Capital Management, Inc. (HCM) launched their HCM Dividend Sector Plus Fund late in 2015, and its performance has not taken long to gain recognition. According to IBD, Investor’s Business Daily, in their recent article, "Best Mutual Funds of 2016, ” the HCM Dividend Sector Plus R Fund (HCMZX) finished the year strong, ranking 9th of 60 funds listed, in the U.S. stock fund category for total return.
The Fund seeks growth by selecting the top dividend paying stocks from each sector along with earnings and valuation metrics. It can move 100% of its investments in securities to 100% cash and equivalents. In addition, the Fund uses HCM’s signature stoploss asset protection tool, the HCM-BuyLine®, which mathematically determines when to enter and exit the market through its non-emotional, quantitative process.
The Fund is managed by Vance Howard, CEO and Founder of Howard Capital Management, Inc. “Returns matter. Downside protection matters,” says Mr. Howard. Opportunistic, this growth-focused strategy supports the Fund’s goal of seeking long-term capital appreciation, while striving to protect capital and capital gains from downturns. Mr. Howard continues, “we are committed to protecting client assets during market declines, all while seeking to capitalize on opportunities for growth.”
The Fund is offered on numerous investment platforms, investing in equity securities of companies included in the S&P 500 (Stand & Poor’s 500 Index) U.S. stock market benchmark.

The HCM-BuyLine® is a reactive indicator, not a proactive one. Stoploss protection will not necessarily contain your losses in the desired amounts due to the limitations of the HCM-Buy-Line, market conditions, and delays in executing orders. It is not an actual stoploss order that automatically sells securities in the portfolio at a certain price. Naturally, there can be no guarantee that the HCM-BuyLine® indicator will perform as anticipated. No current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including the investments and/or investment strategies recommended by the advisor), will be profitable or equal to past performance levels. Economic factors, market conditions, and investment strategies will affect the performance of any portfolio and there are no assurances that it will match or outperform any particular benchmark for measuring the performance of a portfolio. All investment approaches have the potential for loss as well as gain. Please work with your financial advisor to determine which investment program is consistent with your financial objectives and risk tolerance. Asset allocation and diversification do not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.
