Performance includes reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Gross returns are gross of all fees and transaction costs.
For more recent quarter-end performance information, call 888.862.9923. The Russell 1000® Value Index measures the performance of the large-cap value segment of the U.S. equity universe. It includes those Russell 1000® companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower expected growth values. The index is unmanaged, and does not reflect the deduction of expenses, which have been deducted from the portfolio’s returns. The index’s return assumes reinvestment of all distributions and dividends; you cannot invest directly in an index.

WHAT ARE LARGE-CAP VALUE STOCKS?
Large-cap stocks are shares of companies with large market capitalization (the total market value of all their shares), usually defined as more than $10 billion.
Most of the U.S. equity market is made up of large-cap stocks, so they are often considered to be a core investment.
Because of their size and stability, large-cap stocks tend to be more stable than their smaller counterparts, though they may not offer the same growth opportunities. Large-cap value companies are believed to have a stock price lower than the actual value of shares of the company.

OBJECTIVE & STRATEGY
Azzad’s large-cap value portfolio seeks to achieve a rate of return equal to or greater than the Russell 1000® Value Index after screening for Azzad’s ethical screens.
The manager seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing in undervalued equity securities that meet Azzad’s ethical values screening criteria.
The strategy uses a bottom-up, fundamental research process and invests in large-cap stocks (generally having a market capitalization of greater than $2 billion at the time of purchase) identified by the manager’s relative dividend yield valuation discipline.
Only companies that pay a dividend and have a dividend yield greater than that of the S&P 500 are considered for possible inclusion in the portfolio.

QUARTERLY FACT SHEET
Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Please read the following important disclosures.
Investing in large cap stocks could fall out of favor and returns would subsequently trail returns from the overall stock market. Investing in dividend yielding stocks could fall out of favor and returns would subsequently trail returns from the overall stock market.
Moreover, to the extent that a portfolio favors a growth style, the risk is that the values of growth securities may be more sensitive to changes in current or expected earnings than the values of other securities. To the extent a portfolio uses a value style, the risk is that the market will not recognize a security’s intrinsic value for a long time, or that a stock judged to be undervalued may actually be appropriately priced.
Investments in securities involve risks and there is no guarantee that a strategy will achieve its objectives. As with all stock investments, you may lose money investing in a portfolio. Azzad’s portfolios generally avoid companies in certain economic sectors and businesses due to Azzad’s socially responsible investment restrictions. Therefore, their performance may suffer if these sectors and/or businesses outperform the overall stock market.
Each portfolio is nondiversified and may invest a larger percentage of its assets in fewer companies exposing it to more volatility and/or market risk than a diversified portfolio. Each portfolio is generally available only through one of Azzad’s asset allocation strategies and is not designed by itself to be a comprehensive, diversified investment plan.
All of Azzad’s models are actively managed. Active trading of securities may increase your account’s short-term capital gains or losses, which may affect the taxes you pay. Short-term capital gains are taxed as ordinary income under federal income tax laws. When reviewing your actual performance, holdings and asset allocation, note that different accounts, even though they are traded pursuant to the same strategy, can have varying results. The reasons for this include: i) the period of time in which the accounts are active; ii) the timing of contributions and withdrawals; iii) the account size; iv) the minimum investment requirements and/or withdrawal restrictions; and v) the actual fees charged to an account. There can be no assurance that an account opened by any person will achieve performance returns similar to those provided on this page.
