We believe a focus on companies with solid balance sheets and established dividend-payment histories may be worthwhile in the current environment.

Instead of focusing on current yield, investors may be better served by considering the potential growth of dividend income over time.

A focus on “bond proxy” sectors may cause investors to lose out on potential capital appreciation. We think a different strategy may be in order.

Portfolio Positioningas of 03/31/2021

  • As of March 31, 2021, the Fund’s largest overweight position relative to its benchmark, the Russell 1000® Value Index, is in Microsoft, a software developer. We believe Microsoft is attractively positioned for a generational shift to cloud computing thanks to a massive ecosystem, installed bases in Office, and omnipresence in large enterprises.
  • The Fund is also overweight 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 overweight in Marathon Petroleum Corporation, a refining, marketing and petroleum transportation company. We believe the stock is attractively valued with outlook for improving business fundamentals. Currently, refining margins are at cyclical low levels due to the COVID related drop in demand for oil products. We expect margins to improve significantly as demand recovers with economic activity and resumption of travel.  Additionally, Marathon is also in the process of selling its retail business which we believe should result in a large return of capital to shareholders.
