THE FORESTER VALUE FUND (the "Fund") seeks maximum long-term capital growth. THE FORESTER VALUE FUND invests in the stocks of large U.S. companies that it believes are undervalued and have great appreciation potential. It may also take defensive positions when the manager believes that the overall stock market is highly valued or that market conditions warrant it.The Fund generally purchases a stock only at a price Forester Capital Management ("Forester Capital"), the Funds investment manager (the manager), deems significantly below the intrinsic value of the company - Forester Capital's estimate of the amount a buyer would pay to own the entire company. Forester Capital performs its own fundamental analysis of the company.
