Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2019

  • AXA SA (1.4%), a global insurance and asset management services company, is the portfolio’s largest overweight stock position relative to its benchmark. We believe the company stands to benefit from on-going de-levering and price improvements in specialty lines. The stock is also attractively priced relative to its peers.
  • The Fund is overweight, relative to the benchmark, in Total SA (1.4%), a French fuel, natural gas and low-carbon electricity producer. We believe the company has one of the best long-term free cash flow yields among its peers as well as the most consistent execution track record and best near-term growth profile.
  • Axis Capital Holding (1.1%), a provider of various insurance and reinsurance products, is another of the Fund’s overweight positions relative to its benchmark. We believe the company stands to benefit from a continued firming commercial/specialty market with accelerating rate increases and better reinsurance pricing and terms that could be sustainable through next year and beyond.
  • Key identifiable risks include renewed escalation in the U.S.-China trade dispute, a hard Brexit outcome, disruption in global supply chains as companies prepare for de-globalization, and signs of renewed inflation leading to the possibility of U.S. Federal Reserve policy reversal.

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.
