Sabrient Baker's Dozen Portfolio, 4th Quarter 2021
Sabrient Systems, LLC (“Sabrient”) is an independent equity research firm that builds powerful investment strategies by using a fundamentals-based, quantitative approach. The strategies are used to
create rankings and ratings on more than 7,500 stocks, indices, sectors, and ETFs. Their models are designed to identify those companies that are anticipated to outperform or underperform the market.
The Sabrient Baker’s Dozen Portfolio is a unit investment trust which invests in 13 top-ranked stocks that represent a cross-section of industries that Sabrient believes are positioned to perform well over the next 15 months. They are GARP stocks – stocks that they believe represent growth at a reasonable price – and they are meant to be held for the full 15-month term of the trust.
This unit investment trust seeks above-average capital appreciation; however, there is no assurance the objective will be met.

charges and expenses carefully before investing. Contact your financial professional

An investment in this unmanaged unit investment trust should be made
with an understanding of the risks involved with owning common stocks, such as an economic recession and
the possible deterioration of either the financial condition of the issuers of the equity securities or the general
condition of the stock market.
You should be aware that the portfolio is concentrated in stocks in both the industrials and information
technology sectors which involves additional risks, including limited diversification. The companies engaged
in the industrials sector are subject to certain risks, including a deterioration in the general state of the
economy, intense competition, domestic and international politics, excess capacity and changing spending
trends. The companies engaged in the information technology sector are subject to fierce competition, high
research and development costs, and their products and services may be subject to rapid obsolescence.
Technology company stocks, especially those which are Internet-related, may experience extreme price and
volume fluctuations that are often unrelated to their operating performance.
An investment in foreign securities
should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved with foreign issuers, such as currency
and interest rate fluctuations, nationalization or other adverse political or economic developments, lack of
liquidity of certain foreign markets, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange
control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.
An investment in a portfolio containing small-cap and mid-cap companies is subject to
additional risks, as the share prices of small-cap companies and certain mid-cap
companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies due to several
factors, including limited trading volumes, products, financial resources, management
inexperience and less publicly available information.
Large capitalization companies may grow at a slower rate than the overall market.
As the use of Internet technology has become more prevalent in the course of business,
the trust has become more susceptible to potential operational risks through breaches
The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused significant volatility and declines in global financial markets,
causing losses for investors. The development of vaccines has slowed the spread of the virus and allowed
for the resumption of “reasonably” normal business activity in the United States, although many countries
continue to impose lockdown measures. Additionally, there is no guarantee that vaccines will be effective
against emerging variants of the disease.
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.
Although this portfolio terminates in approximately 15 months, the strategy is long-term.
Investors should consider their ability to pursue investing in successive portfolios,
if available. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or
other qualified plan.
