The Ameristock Funds were created in 1995. The Ameristock Mutual Fund is a No-Load, value-based, domestic, equity-income fund that invests in U.S based companies with a market capitalization of at least $15 billion. Under normal market conditions, the Ameristock Mutual Fund will invest at least 80 percent of the value of its total assets in common stock of such large capitalization companies.
Ameristock founder Nicholas Gerber co-manages the Ameristock Mutual Fund. Prior to establishing Ameristock, Gerber served as a portfolio manager with Bank of America Capital Management, where he was in charge for the each day stewardship of four funds with a joint value in excess of $240 million. Ameristock Fund seeks capital appreciation and current income. The fund normally invests at least 80 percent of assets in common stocks. Management emphasizes large-cap companies that it evaluates to have low P/E ratios and high dividend yields. The fund may invest in foreign securities only through American depositary receipts. It may also invest in high-quality fixed-income securities and may engage in options and futures transactions.
Ameristock Funds was brought into being on a simple concept: That if you deal with risk in place of return, the return will take care of itself. Looking back over their history, the concept on which Ameristock was founded has served their investors well.

To a smaller extent, the Fund also invests in huge capitalization growth stocks in order to be represented in that portion of the stock market.
