Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2019

  • The portfolio employs a fundamental, bottom-up individual stock selection strategy that focuses on quality companies with compelling valuations over a long term horizon.
  • We initiated a position in shares of General Mills, Inc., a branded consumer foods manufacturer. Management has been reinvesting in the company’s yogurt and cereal businesses to restore growth following a period of weak results. Additionally, the company has continued to benefit from the integration and expansion of the Blue Buffalo premium pet food acquisition. We believe this will lead to improvements in growth and profitability.
  • We also initiated a position in shares of Wabtec Corp., a leading manufacturer of equipment and supplies for the global railroad industry. The company has been facing headwinds from the completion of the railroad industry’s multi-year equipment safety initiative as well as temporarily reduced equipment demand due to freight railroads taking steps to increase the efficiency of existing locomotives and rolling stock. We believe the long term drivers of demand for railroad equipment and supplies are intact and that the issues currently facing the company have created an attractive opportunity for long term investment.
  • We eliminated the portfolio’s position in Coca Cola European Partners, a beverage distributor, and AMETEK, Inc., an electronic instruments manufacturer. The sales were consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.

Class I - SEC Returns reflect performance for Class I shares at Net Asset Value.

Except as noted below, returns with sales charges reflect a maximum sales charge of 2.50%. There are also ongoing 12b-1 service and distribution fees.

Class A Shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1.50% if the shares are repurchased before the first day of the month in which the one year anniversary of the purchase falls. The CDSC is not reflected in the performance with maximum sales charge.
