What 30+ Years of Investment Experience Tells UsThe Perritt Funds seek to capture the benefits of the "small firm effect"1 through bottom-up, fundamental stock selection. We are devoted to the micro-cap space and focuses only on investing in micro-cap companies. Our two micro-cap investment strategies offer investors distinct exposure to the micro-cap asset class without risk of style drift.
Perritt MicroCap Opportunities Fund (PRCGX)The Perritt MicroCap Opportunities Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of equity securities that at the time of purchase have a market capitalization (equity market value) of $500 million or less. The Fund seeks micro-cap companies that management believes have the potential for long-term capital appreciation based on superior or niche products or services, favorable operating characteristics, superior management, and/or other exceptional factors. Investors should expect the Fund to contain a mix of both value and growth stocks.
Perritt Ultra MicroCap Fund (PREOX)The Perritt Ultra MicroCap Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of equity securities that at the time of purchase have a market capitalization (equity market value) of $300 million or less. The Fund seeks to invest in very small companies that have a significant percentage of stock owned by management, low levels of long-term debt, above average revenue and earnings growth rates, and those that possess reasonable valuations based on the ratios of price-to-sales, price-to-earnings, and price-to-book values.
