Janus Henderson Guidance Indices

LET EARNINGS PER SHARE NAVIGATE THE PATH FORWARD.

Investing can sometimes feel like a risky endeavor, which is why it is important to have guidance to light the way. With this in mind, the Janus Henderson Guidance Indices select companies that provide earnings per share (EPS) guidance, which has historically been shown to enhance stock returns.

  • Companies that provide earnings guidance may have more stable business models and may be rewarded by investors for their increased transparency.
  • Stocks are screened from a pool of the largest U.S. companies that provide EPS guidance.
  • In seeking to stabilize the index, Guidance Indices are weighted by low volatility.

Weighting Methodology Proprietary Weighting Methodology
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
There is no assurance that the proprietary rules-based index methodology will select securities that individually, or in the aggregate, outperform the applicable broader market universe.
Index performance does not reflect the expenses of managing a portfolio as an index is unmanaged and not available for direct investment. The performance of any index herein is not illustrative of the performance of any security.
Any index performance prior to the index inception date is pre-inception data and is hypothetical. Pre-inception data is based on criteria applied retroactively with the benefit of hindsight and knowledge of factors that may have positively affected its performance, and cannot account for all financial risk that may affect the actual performance of any trading strategy based on the applicable index. Simulated index returns (including pre-inception data) that have been produced by the retroactive application of a back-tested methodology may reflect a bias toward strategies that have performed well in the past. Any pre-inception data was produced by the index sponsor, Janus Henderson Indices LLC. The index methodologies are available above. Actual index performance may vary significantly from pre-inception data.
