Sabrient Baker's Dozen Portfolio, December 2018 Series
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 7,000 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
in the coming year. They are GARP stocks – stocks that they believe represent growth at a reasonable price – and they are meant to be held for the full 13-month term of the trust.
This unit investment trust seeks above-average capital appreciation; however, there is no assurance the objective will be met.

You should carefully consider the portfolio's investment objectives,
risks, and charges and expenses before investing. Contact your financial advisor
or call First Trust Portfolios, L.P. at 1.800.621.1675 to request a prospectus,
which contains this and other information about the portfolio. Read it carefully
before you invest.
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 the financials sector
which involves additional risks, including limited diversification. The companies
engaged in the financials sector are subject to the adverse effects of volatile interest
rates, economic recession, decreases in the availability of capital, increased
competition from new entrants in the field, and potential increased regulation.
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.
One of the securities held by the trust is issued by a foreign entity. An investment in a
portfolio containing equity securities of foreign issuers is subject to additional risks,
including currency fluctuations, political risks, withholding, the lack of adequate
financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.
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
in cyber security.
Although this portfolio terminates in approximately 13 months, the strategy is longterm.
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.
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.
