Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2019

  • 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 LCI Industries, Inc., a well-established content supplier to the RV industry. The firm has displayed a high-teens return on invested capital due to its dominant market position and low capital intensity business model. Furthermore, the company has been able to outgrow the industry through organic product development and an astute acquisition strategy.
  • We initiated a position in shares of A.O. Smith Corporation, a manufacturer of water heating equipment and air purification products. Our favorable view of the firm is supported by a largely replacement driven North America market, favorable water heater industry structure, and strong brand positioning providing unique pricing power and stability within building products.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in Live Nation Entertainment, Inc., an entertainment company which engages in producing, marketing, and selling live concerts for artists. The sale was consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.
  • We eliminated the portfolio’s position in Texas Roadhouse, Inc., a full-service, casual dining restaurant chain, which was consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.

Class A  Except as noted below, returns with sales charges reflect a maximum sales charge of 5.75% for equity funds, 2.25% for all tax-free income funds, fixed income funds and multi-asset class funds. There are also ongoing 12b-1 service fees (and, in certain cases, distribution fees).

Class A Shares purchased subject to a front-end sales charge have no contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). However, certain purchases of Class A shares made without a front-end sales charge may be subject to a CDSC of 1% if the shares are redeemed before the first day of the month in which the one year anniversary of the purchase falls. The CDSC is not reflected in the performance with maximum sales charge.

The Russell 2500™ Index is a market cap weighted index that includes the smallest 2,500 companies covered in the Russell 3000 universe of United States-based listed equities.
