Portfolio Positioningas of 12/31/2019

  • The portfolio employs a fundamental, bottom-up individual stock selection strategy that focuses on quality companies with compelling valuation over a long term horizon.
  • We initiated a position in shares of Ally Financial, Inc., a U.S. automotive finance company. We believe management can be successful in its effort to improve Ally’s margin structure while making progress towards diversifying its loan portfolio to mitigate cyclicality.
  • We also initiated a position in shares of Delta Air Lines, Inc., a U.S.-based airline. We believe the market underappreciates Delta’s compelling operational acumen, structural cost advantage and the value creation potential of its relationship with American Express for its credit card loyalty program.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in shares of Tapestry, Inc., a luxury brands provider. We believe the company’s acquisition of Kate Spade has led to disappointing operating and earnings performance relative to our original expectations. We no longer have conviction in our original thesis and have exited the position.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in shares of HP, Inc., a personal computing provider. HP, Inc. announced a significant change in strategy in an effort to stem continued market share losses in its critical ink and toner aftermarket business. The continuing market share losses run contrary to our original expectation of stable share and modestly growing cash flow from this business.

Class F - The inception date for Class F shares is September 28, 2007. The performance quotations for Class F are based on the following methods of calculation: (a) for periods prior to September 28, 2007, a restated figure is used based on the Fund's Class I performance, which does not have a 12b-1 fee, adjusted to reflect the Rule 12b-1 rate differential between Class I and Class F; and (b) for periods after September 28, 2007, actual Class F performance is used reflecting all charges and fees applicable to Class F shares.

Class F shares are available only to eligible fee-based advisory programs and certain registered investment advisers. For additional information, see the Fund’s current prospectus.

The Russell 1000® Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 1000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values.
