Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2020

  • Walmart, Inc. (2.2%), an American retail and wholesale business company, is the portfolio’s largest overweight stock position relative to its benchmark. We believe the company has made numerous positive changes in recent years which will be beneficial in the long-run, such as upgrading the management team and building a more agile, innovative and nimble corporate culture.
  • The Fund is overweight, relative to the benchmark, in Sanwa Holdings, Corp. (1.7%), a Japanese building materials company which manufactures, installs, and maintains commercial shutters and garage doors. Stricter commercial buildings standards stipulating increased fire safety specifications for commercial shutters are expected to drive an upgrade cycle in the medium term. Management’s continuing shift towards the more defensive maintenance services business and highly reputable installation services create a strong value proposition for the customer.
  • Norfolk Southern, Corp. (1.7%), a rail transportation company operating primarily in the Southeastern, Eastern, and Midwestern United States, is another of the Fund’s overweight positions relative to its benchmark. Norfolk Southern is our favorite of the Class 1 railroads given its ongoing margin improvement opportunity through the implementation of Precision Scheduled Railroading (PSR) which sets up attractive incremental margins for the rest of 2020 and into 2021.
  • Key risks include the clear tradeoff between economic recovery and the spread of Covid-19, the shape of the ongoing U.S. social crisis/2020 U.S. Presidential election, and Sino-US relations.

Class A  Except as noted below, returns with sales charges reflect a maximum sales charge of 5.75% for equity funds, 2.25% for all tax-free income funds, fixed income funds and multi-asset class funds. There are also ongoing 12b-1 service fees (and, in certain cases, distribution fees).

Class A Shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1% if the shares are redeemed before the first day of the month in which the one year anniversary of the purchase falls. The CDSC is not reflected in the performance with maximum sales charge.
