Brookmont Equity Dividend Portfolio, Series 26
Brookmont Capital Management (“Brookmont”) is an employee-owned registered investment advisor whose investment strategy is based on a portfolio of individual equities that provide attractive
current yields, potential dividend growth, and the opportunity for capital appreciation. They execute a top-down approach, beginning with a solid understanding of current economic and market
cycles, and use their macroeconomic outlook in determining their asset allocation models, sector weightings, and seek to identify attractive areas of the market.
The Brookmont Equity Dividend Portfolio is a unit investment trust which invests in common stocks with above-average dividend yields and the potential for long-term capital gains. Not limited to a
certain “style”, Brookmont selects stocks they believe offer attractive valuations with below-market risk profiles.
The Importance of Dividends
Dividends have historically been one of the few constants in the world of investing, and they
have had a significant impact on stock performance, contributing nearly half of the stock market’s
total return. According to Ibbotson Associates, dividends have provided approximately 41% of the
10.20% average annual total return on the S&P 500 Index from 1926 through 2019. Of course,
past performance is no guarantee of future results.
This unit investment trust seeks above-average total return through a combination of capital
appreciation and dividend income; however, there is no assurance the objective will be met.

The recent outbreak of a respiratory disease designated as COVID-19 was first detected in China in December 2019. The global economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is impossible to predict but is expected to disrupt
manufacturing, supply chains and sales in affected areas and negatively impact global economic growth prospects. The COVID-19 outbreak has also caused significant volatility and declines in global financial markets, which
have caused losses for investors. The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak may be short term or may last for an extended period of time, and in either case could result in a substantial economic downturn or recession.
The value of the securities held by the
trust may be subject to steep declines or
increased volatility due to changes in
performance or perception of the issuers.
