Portfolio Positioningas of 06/30/2020

  • We believe the Fund’s long-term positioning in high innovation stocks and industries should be a tailwind for relative performance. We believe industries powering the technology revolution – from the cloud to artificial intelligence to biotechnology, medical devices, and ecommerce – are best positioned to weather both cyclical bear markets and corrections with unique catalysts like COVID-19,  and benefit from the  innovative environment that will likely persist for years. We continue to assess market sentiment and momentum factors to balance risk and opportunity
  • Moreover, unlike many other areas of the economy, we believe that these targeted areas of innovation should continue to exhibit fundamental strength and have the potential for greater relative performance through an economic slowdown, as they continue to displace older businesses and outdated technologies.
  • The Fund already had a large underweight to cyclical sectors over the past year, due to the trade war and slow growth overseas and in the U.S. These sectors, which include leisure, travel, tourism, and now energy, all appear to be embarking on much more severe cyclical declines.

Class R2 - The performance quotations for Class R2 reflect the following methods of calculation: (a) for periods prior to the inception date for Class R2, a restated figure is used based on the Fund's Class A performance, excluding the effect of Class A's maximum sales charge (which does not apply to Class R2) adjusted to reflect the Rule 12b-1 rate differential between Class A and Class R2, which has a higher 12b-1 fee than Class A; and (b) for periods after the inception date for Class R2, actual Class R2 performance is used reflecting all charges and fees applicable to Class R2 shares. Hypothetical performance data for Class R2, as measured from since inception of the Fund using the methodology described above, is not available if the Class A inception date is equal or greater than ten years old. Please refer to the Class R2 performance information for the inception date for Class R2. Please refer to the Class A performance information for the inception date for Class A.
