Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2016

  • The financials sector is an underweight relative to the portfolio’s benchmark, the Russell 2000® Index. Our preference is to diversify the portfolio’s sector exposure broadly across banks, insurance, and high-quality REITs, given the uncertainty in interest rates.
  • We trimmed the portfolio’s exposure to the consumer discretionary sector, and remain underweight the benchmark. We are cautious about the sector, given lofty valuations. 
  • We increased the portfolio’s weight in the energy sector. We are adding exposure to better capitalized companies with less risk
  • We believe that the economic outlook for the United States remains favorable among developed countries. We remain cautious toward stocks with significant international exposure, given the continued volatility and uncertainty globally.
