Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2019

  • The portfolio employs a fundamental, bottom-up individual stock selection strategy that focuses on quality companies with compelling valuation over a long term horizon.
  • We initiated a position in shares of Saia, Inc., a transportation holding company. We believe Saia has an excellent opportunity to continue to improve its margins over the course of the next 3-5 years while simultaneously continuing to grow market share in the increasingly attractive less than truckload (LTL) transport market.
  • We purchased shares of Triumph Group, Inc., an aerospace and defense systems manufacturer. Following a series of recent restructurings and divestitures of underperforming businesses, we believe Triumph Group is on the cusp of significantly improved free cash flow generation. As a result, we see the equity as significantly undervalued on our normalized free cash flow outlook.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in Gibraltar Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of products for building markets, and Advanced Energy Industries, Inc., a power and control technologies provider. The sales were consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.

Class R2 - The performance quotations for Class R2 reflect the following methods of calculation: (a) for periods prior to the inception date for Class R2, a restated figure is used based on the Fund's Class A performance, excluding the effect of Class A's maximum sales charge (which does not apply to Class R2) adjusted to reflect the Rule 12b-1 rate differential between Class A and Class R2, which has a higher 12b-1 fee than Class A; and (b) for periods after the inception date for Class R2, actual Class R2 performance is used reflecting all charges and fees applicable to Class R2 shares. Hypothetical performance data for Class R2, as measured from since inception of the Fund using the methodology described above, is not available if the Class A inception date is equal or greater than ten years old. Please refer to the Class R2 performance information for the inception date for Class R2. Please refer to the Class A performance information for the inception date for Class A.

Class R2 shares are only offered to certain eligible investors. 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.
