Portfolio Positioningas of 09/30/2021

  • The Fund 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 Chesapeake Energy Corp.,  an American energy company. Post emergence from bankruptcy, in Feb 2021, the company had a cleaner balance sheet and had significantly improved its cost structure.  We believe Chesapeake offered an attractive way to gain exposure to improving natural gas fundamentals.
  • We also initiated a position in shares of Eagle Materials Inc., a building materials company. We believe the company is well-managed with top-tier assets and attractive end market exposures. Further, we believe that both the cement and wallboard segments should benefit from multi-year tailwinds in demand as well as growing industry supply constraints, translating into higher realized pricing and profitability.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in BankUnited, a bank holding company, in favor of more attractive investment opportunities consistent with our normalized free cash flow methodology.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Blue Bird Corp., a school bus manufacturer, in favor of more attractive investment opportunities consistent with our normalized free cash flow methodology.
