* All portfolio characteristics produced by Refinitiv and are rounded to the nearest whole number with the exception of the Most Recent Quarter YoY EPS Growth which is calculated by Edgewood.

^ Most recent quarter YoY EPS (year over year earnings per share) growth figures reflect the period ended 6/30/23 with the exception of Adobe, Nike, Intuit, NVIDIA, and Lululemon whose fiscal quarters differ. These numbers are calculated based on company earnings reports and exclude the impact of non-recurring items not indicative of the underlying business, where appropriate. Blackstone’s EPS figure is actually Distributable Earnings per share as we believe it is the most relevant valuation metric. Illumina’s growth rate in the most recent quarter is calculated using reported adjusted operating profit which removes the effect of Grail dilution on YoY comparisons. We believe this metric is most representative of underlying business growth. ILMN’s most recent quarter YoY adjusted EPS growth rate is -44%. American Tower’s EPS figure is actually Adjusted Funds from Operations per share as we believe it is the most relevant valuation metric. 2023-2025 earnings estimates for the S&P 500 ($205, $230, $254 respectively) and Russell 1000 Growth earnings estimates for 2023-2025 ($92, $107, and $122 respectively) along with the current quarter year over year earnings per share growth and 5-year estimated growth rates are based on most recently available information provided by Bloomberg.
