Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2021

  • This quarter we continued to take profits in outperforming areas of the portfolio, particularly in those reopening plays that have done well this year. We are positioned in a more balanced way on economic reopening, with a more even exposure to growth versus value and cyclical versus defensive.  While we took down exposure in select stocks (mainly) to take profits and reposition, we remain invested in many of these companies as we are confident in them long term.
  • We are constructive on sectors where we can have less exposure to inflation and supply chain dynamics. Real estate is one of those areas. We closed our underweight to the real estate sector for the first time in several years, as we are constructive on structural opportunities within it. Although we have taken profits in the last couple of quarters from big winners in the logistics space, we are now focusing on the German residential market. We also believe that global ESG trends will benefit the sector as businesses look to relocate to ESG-compliant buildings.
  • We continued to be constructive on financials – another sector that is not dependent on global supply chains. Part of our focus remained on well-capitalized and well-positioned banks in Emerging Markets, specifically in Mexico and India. Loan demand has been growing faster than expected in Mexico. With rates rising and Nonperforming Loans (NPLs) coming down, we feel there is a very firm recovery taking place. We believe that financials could have some of the best earnings revisions going forward, as they now have the ability to recover what they have been underearning over the last several quarters.
  • We dramatically reduced our exposure in China, particularly in the consumer discretionary sector. Profit taking was the driver behind some of the reductions, and concerns over regulation around several industries was the other driver. We sold Xinyi Glass (0%), a Chinese glass producer that benefitted significantly from industrial production in the post-Pandemic recovery. We sold SSY Group (0%), a Chinese health care company listed in Hong Kong, as there is too much uncertainty around regulations in this industry.  We also sold SITC (0%), a pan-Asia regional shipping company, due to strong stock price performance.
  • We still place most of our focus on individual companies and key themes we derive from intensive company research. One of these themes is that the COVID-19 pandemic will lead to permanent changes in consumer and corporate behaviors. In many cases, these shifts have already taken place, but in our view may now accelerate by three to five years. Many of these investments have performed exceedingly well, and we sold or reduced these positions as we shifted into underperforming areas like information technology services in Japan. We are also exploring the shift to cloud computing and storage. We believe that the need for a physical presence is diminishing and will benefit providers of innovative cloud solutions. The move to online consumerism also brings our focus to online retail. The global pandemic has accelerated this existing trend and we are seeing higher adoption rates of e-commerce as a platform. Within online retail, profitability is increasing due to lower return rates, and this may be due to a change in consumer preferences for social responsibility and waste consciousness, a theme that we believe is here to stay.
  • We believe coordinated global fiscal and monetary support will continue to have a positive impact on markets as liquidity is injected into the global economy. However, interest rates and inflation expectations began to rise as a result, with investors anticipating a substantially healthier economic backdrop. Therefore, we have been positioning the portfolio to potentially take advantage of a rotation to cyclicality by increasing our exposure to industrials as well as emerging markets and financials. We are also analyzing what inflation will do to corporate earnings power and whether companies will be able to pass through rising input costs.
  • We maintain our long-term exposure to Emerging Markets, but it falls below our historical weightings in the region as significant risks surrounding capacity to battle the COVID-19 pandemic remains. However, over the course of the last few months, we have been adding to the region, primarily focused on strong, well-capitalized banking franchises that we believe will be beneficiaries of an economic recovery. We also believe that within the financials sector, many of the institutions will have strong earnings revisions going forward.
