Portfolio Positioningas of 06/30/2019

  • Mondelez International Inc., a snack food and beverage product manufacturer, is one of the portfolio's largest overweight positions relative to its benchmark, the Russell 1000® Value Index, as of June 30, 2019. We believe that continued margin expansion and balanced financial performance set a backdrop for potential over delivery on the topline.
  • Broadcom Ltd., a digital semiconductor connectivity solutions provider, is another of the portfolio's overweight positions relative to its benchmark. Despite the immediate trade related headwinds, we believe the longer term benefit from the CA Technologies acquisition presents the potential for long term capital appreciation.
  • The portfolio also is overweight in Chevron Corp., an energy company, relative to the benchmark. We have high conviction in Chevron because of its focus on responsible capital spending, shareholder-friendly payout policies, and financial discipline.
