Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2016

  • During the first quarter, we increased the portfolio’s exposure to the health care sector. We favor companies with stock-specific catalysts.
  • In addition, we decreased the portfolio’s exposure to the industrials sector, yet remain overweight relative to the portfolio’s benchmark, the Russell 1000® Value Index. Within the sector, we are focused on companies committed to unlocking value by reallocating capital to core competencies.
  • We remain overweight to the information technology sector. We continue to favor companies that should benefit from an increase in technology infrastructure spending and information security.
  • We increased the portfolio’s exposure to the energy sector, yet remain underweight relative to the portfolio’s benchmark.
  • We expect continued market volatility due to muted growth and the uncertain macroeconomic and geopolitical backdrop, especially as structural concerns persist in China. Therefore, we continue to focus on U.S.-centric companies that have financial and capital management flexibility to compete strategically. As a result of this view, we increased attention to stock-specific decisions, near-term fundamentals, and rigorous execution of our buy/sell discipline.
