Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2019

  • The portfolio employs a fundamental, bottom-up individual stock selection strategy that leans towards quality companies with compelling valuation over a long term horizon.
  • We initiated a position in shares of Masco Corporation, a company that manufactures a variety of residential building products. Under new management, the company has aggressively restructured, exiting low margin businesses, removing excess capacity and revitalizing its relationships in the dealer channel, leading to better overall execution and profitability.  Furthermore, a new strategic review was just announced that we believe should continue this trend of improved focus on quality and better returns.
  • We purchased shares of Avnet, Inc., a global distributor of primarily semiconductor products and related services. We expect the company to increase operating margins over the next few years as the company recovers from a problematic ERP system implementation in its Americas business and continues to grow its higher margin “Demand Creation” businesses.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in Corning, Inc., a glass and ceramics manufacturer, which was consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.
  • We eliminated the portfolio’s position in Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc., an international technical professional services firm, which was consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.
