Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2018

  • Economic data and earnings results have generally improved, but there are some questions as to the ultimate success of policy moves and how they will impact economic activity. In this unsettled environment, we seek balance and look for attractive companies at both ends of the growth and value style spectrum.
  • The real estate sector is the portfolio’s largest underweight relative to its benchmark, the Russell 2500TM Index.  While we continue to seek attractive investments in this sector, we have not currently identified many attractive stocks within the sector relative to the large index weight.
  • The portfolio remains overweight in the information technology sector, as we see both growth and turnaround opportunities that are appealing within the sector.
  • The portfolio is overweight in the materials sector. The portfolio’s exposure is a combination of packaging stocks with stable demand outlook and select cyclical materials stocks that should benefit from macro improvement, M&A and supportive government policies.
  • The portfolio remains underweight in the consumer discretionary sector, and the allocation to this sector has decreased over the quarter, as we have sold some names that have appreciated.  We believe the secular pressure created by the move to e-retailers and online outlets will continue to impact traditional consumer companies.

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 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.
