Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2018

  • The portfolio employs a fundamental, bottom-up individual stock selection strategy that leans towards quality companies with compelling valuation over a long term horizon.
  • The portfolio remains underweight in the real estate sector relative to its benchmark, the Russell 2000® Index, partially due to the risk of rising interest rates, which could negatively affect income-oriented securities.
  • The portfolio is also underweight in the financials sector, which is partially due to the elimination of our portfolio’s position in Goosehead Insurance, a personal lines insurance agency services provider. We sold our position in the company due to the stock’s appreciation and relative valuation.
  • The portfolio is overweight in the industrials and the materials sectors relative to its benchmark. This is largely a function of bottom up views on individual stocks, some of which are new additions based on the recent pullback which was driven by concerns about escalating trade disputes and potential slowing global growth, amongst other factors.
  • While economic data and earnings results generally improved throughout 2018 in the U.S., we are mindful that potential changes in global policy could add to market volatility and negatively impact economic activity and risk assets. In this unsettled environment, we seek balance and continue to look for attractively valued companies with healthy medium to long term prospects.

Class F - The inception date for Class F shares is September 28, 2007. The performance quotations for Class F are based on the following methods of calculation: (a) for periods prior to September 28, 2007, a restated figure is used based on the Fund's Class I performance, which does not have a 12b-1 fee, adjusted to reflect the Rule 12b-1 rate differential between Class I and Class F; and (b) for periods after September 28, 2007, actual Class F performance is used reflecting all charges and fees applicable to Class F shares.

Class F shares are available only to eligible fee-based advisory programs and certain registered investment advisers. For additional information, see the Fund’s current prospectus.

The Russell 2000® Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values.
