Portfolio Positioningas of 06/30/2020

  • The Fund employs a fundamental, bottom-up individual stock selection strategy that focuses largely on companies with compelling valuation over a long term horizon.
  • Given our longer-term orientation and the focus we place on normalized free cash flow, we believe we have a distinct ability to look through some of the shorter-term impacts on companies due to the global pandemic, and we continue to look for opportunities amid the volatility. As a result, we have been able to methodically upgrade the Fund in areas that have been particularly impacted by adhering to our process. 
  • We purchased shares of Core Laboratories N.V., an oil and gas reservoir analysis provider. We believe the company has achieved industry-leading operating margins and returns on capital. In our view, Core Lab’s low capital intensity, IP-driven services, and strong track record of free cash flow differentiate it within the oil field services industry. As such, it has historically traded at a premium valuation relative to peers. We believe the recent collapse in oil prices and energy stocks along with compression in the valuation gap has provided a good opportunity to invest in Core Labs at a very attractive normalized free cash flow yield.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Brinker International, Inc., a restaurant chain operator, consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.

  • The portfolio employs a fundamental, bottom-up individual stock selection strategy that focuses largely on companies with compelling valuation over a long term horizon.
  • We initiated a position in shares of Spectrum Brands, Inc., a global consumer products company. The company recently finished pruning its portfolio of products into a cohesive set of offerings. We believe the share price is inexpensive and the company’s value will soon begin to be recognized.
  • We purchased shares of Comfort Systems USA, Inc., a high quality engineering and construction firm with a focus on HVAC and plumbing systems for the non-residential construction market. We believe the company has produced very strong results through multiple business cycles and given its largely labor-based model, free cash flow generation has been extremely robust and consistent.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in Milacron Holdings Corp., a plastic manufacturer, after it was announced that the company was being acquired by Hillenbrand, Inc. We sold the portfolio’s position in Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc., a roofing materials distributor, consistent with our sell discipline given more attractive opportunities.
