Portfolio Positioningas of 12/31/2022

  • During the quarter we focused on shifting the Fund’s overall positioning to be higher in quality and liquidity. Specifically, we used less volatile market days to take gains in lower quality holdings and repositioned the portfolio to a higher quality profile.
  • We reduced the Fund’s exposure to CMBS over the period. Sales were focused on hospitality and office backed SASB deals. We’ve maintained a very high bar to add with a preference for high quality, liquid names. Recently, we have been adding agency-backed CMBS due to our up-in-quality preference and the sector’s relative value.
  • We reduced lower-quality ABS exposure and identified opportunities to sell positions that outperformed during the period. 
  • We increased the Fund’s exposure to investment grade corporate bonds over the period. We added to Healthcare, Utilities, and Telecommunications as we sought defensive, non-cyclical sectors of the market. The Energy sector also remains a large active weight. The energy allocation reflects our view that the industry as a whole is in a position to benefit even if prices were much lower than they are today. We feel that this, in addition to improving credit fundamentals, is not appropriately reflected in credit ratings. Additionally, we continue to focus on companies that are deleveraging with solid operating fundamentals.
  • We reduced the Fund’s exposure to high yield as we looked to move up in quality. While we took down the Fund’s weight and risk within high yield, we have maintained an allocation with an emphasis on BB’s and favored issues within the Energy and Basic Industry sector while remaining cautious of exposure to securities further down the credit stack and those within the consumer cyclical category.
  • We also reduced the Fund’s exposure to Bank Loans over the period.

Class A  Except as noted below, returns with sales charges reflect a maximum sales charge of 5.75% for equity funds, 2.25% for all tax-free income funds, fixed income funds and multi-asset class funds. There are also ongoing 12b-1 service fees (and, in certain cases, 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% if the shares are redeemed 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.

Class A Shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, effective 12/1/2021, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1% if the shares are redeemed before the first day of the month of the 18-month anniversary of the purchase. Fund shares purchased without a sales charge prior to 12/1/2021 may be assessed a CDSC of 1% if they are redeemed 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.
