Portfolio Positioningas of 6/30/2021

  • The U.S. equity market continues to be healthy, trading at or near all-time highs with solid breadth. Earlier in the month of June, the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) signaled it would taper sooner and the market sold off modestly. The reaction to the Fed meeting was orderly – the U.S. 10-year Treasury did not move much, and although volatility rose sharply, the VIX remained at a reasonable level (neither too complacent nor too worried).
  • In addition, Innovation Growth stocks traded well following the Fed meeting indicating an ongoing healthy rotation. Our other key technical indicators continue to be positive. Over the last month, the portfolio has tilted slightly back to secular growth given the expectation of lower bond yields in the near term, combined with continued strong fundamentals within the information technology, consumer, and communication services sectors heading into the Q2 earnings season.
  • Our active approach continues to focus on identifying high innovation companies with both operating momentum and price momentum, and it is through this lens that we continuously assess our portfolio and developments in the broader economy.
