WELCOME TO THE NEW GUGGENHEIM INVESTMENTS’ UIT SITE FOR MERRILL LYNCH ADVISORS
Similar to the prior web site, the new site offers convenient access to timely information and data on the Guggenheim Investments’ UITs available at Merrill Lynch. In addition, you will find enhanced features including:
The latest Guggenheim thought leadership and sales ideas designed to help support your business
A portfolio search tool to help you find trusts by name or ticker
Highlights and news on upcoming conference calls, new products and Guggenheim research
We hope you find the new site easier to navigate and a valuable tool for your business!
In the firm’s “Top stock picks for 2014” report, Merrill Lynch identifies the fifty stocks they believe will outperform their peers over the next 12 months.
To provide you with convenient access to these stocks, Guggenheim Investments created the ML Top Picks for 2014 Trust. Through the Trust, you can offer clients exposure to all 50 stocks in one portfolio.
Merrill Lynch 2014 Outlook:
“Pick stocks, not markets” - Falling correlations among individual equities may result in an environment that favors stock selection over indexing.
“Be an owner, not a lender" - ML believes an improving US economy, healthy growth in earnings and reasonable valuations all favor equities.
Proven Expertise: For the third year in a row, Institutional Investor has named BofA Merrill the top global research firm.*
Guggenheim Outlook: Improving economic performance should translate into greater confidence and more risk tolerant investors which would suggest strong U.S. stock market performance in the coming months.
Convenience: With one ticket, you can offer exposure to each of the 50 ML Top Picks stocks.
Rollover Option**: For clients that invested in the ML Top Picks for 2013 Trust or seeking a roll solution for another maturing trust (Guggenheim or from other sponsors), they may choose to roll those assets at a reduced sales charge into the ML Top Picks for 2014.
Exclusive and Limited Availability
Exclusive: Available only through Merrill Lynch advisors.
Limited Offering: Available for ticketing now through April 1, 2014.

As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Trust. No assurance can be given that the Trust's investment objective will be achieved. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these: • Securities prices can be volatile. • Due to the current state of the economy, the value of the securities held by the Trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in the performance or perception of the issuers. • Share prices or dividend rates on the securities in the Trust may decline during the life of the Trust. • Inflation may lead to a decrease in the value of assets or income from investments. There is no guarantee that the issuers of the securities will declare dividends in the future and, if declared, whether they will remain at current levels or increase over time. • The Sponsor does not actively manage the portfolio. There are additional risks associated with investing in the Trust. Please click on the fact card link above and see the Trust prospectus for more complete risk information.
Unit Investment Trusts are fixed, not actively managed and should be considered as part of a long-term strategy. UITs are subject to annual fund operating expenses in addition to the sales charges.
