RE Advisers selects stocks that may benefit over time from a more reasonable market assessment of fundamental value. RE Advisers' fixed-income strategy primarily seeks current income while maintaining a low degree of fluctuation. In selecting portfolio holdings, they consider the outlook for the economy, monetary policy, interest rates and credit spreads.
