State Street Investment Analytics Announces Master Trusts Universe Results For Third Quarter 2012

“US equity funds in the top quartile of the universe in the third quarter had a larger market capitalization, higher earnings per share growth rates and payout ratios and lower P/E ratios than those in the bottom quartile,” said Paula Gehr, vice president of State Street Investment Analytics. “We saw representation of all equity styles in both the top and bottom quartiles, although very few small value funds made it into the top quartile.”

Characteristics of funds in the top quartile for the full year ending September 30, 2012 were nearly a mirror image: Top quartile funds had a smaller market capitalization, lower earnings per share growth rates and payout ratios but similar P/E ratios to those in the bottom quartile.
