Portfolio Positioningas of 06/30/2022

  • As of June 30, 2022, the Fund’s largest overweight position relative to its benchmark, the Russell 1000® Value Index, is in UnitedHealth Group Incorporated, a company that engages in the provision of health care coverage, software, and data consultancy services. We believe the company is attractively valued with a strong management team that has deployed cash wisely.
  • The Fund is overweight relative to its benchmark in NextEra Energy, an electric power and energy infrastructure company. We continue to view NextEra as a standout performer in the electric utility industry as they grow both their regulated and non-regulated businesses. We believe they are a top renewable energy play and will benefit as the demand for renewables continues to rise.
  • The Fund is also overweight relative to its benchmark in Northrop Grumman Corp., a defense contractor. We expect steady growth in U.S. defense spending based on escalating geopolitical tensions following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine but also related to long-term strategic competition between the U.S. and China. We expect Northrop Grumman to be the fastest growing U.S. defense contractor based on its large and ramping growth platforms that serve critical U.S. needs including B-21, Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD), and satellites.
