Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2019

  • 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 Avery Dennison Corporation, a high quality producer of pressure sensitive materials used in self-adhesive labels for consumer, industrial, medical, and freight applications. We believe Avery Dennison is the dominant player in the majority of the segments it operates in, has above average topline growth on favorable secular tailwinds, and illustrates low capital intensity and good capital allocation.
  • We initiated a position in shares of Teradyne, Inc., an automation equipment supplier. Teradyne commands significant market share within a duopoly in its core semi-test market. Additionally, the firm has a strong position in the fast growing industrial automation market.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in Fidelity National Information Services, Inc., a financial services technology company. Following the company’s acquisition of WorldPay, the company’s market capitalization exceeded our targeted range.
  • We also sold the portfolio’s position in Berry Global Group, Inc., a value added engineered materials provider, which was consistent with our normalized free cash flow framework.

Class F3 - The inception date for Class F3 shares is April 4, 2017. The performance quotations for Class F3 are based on the following methods of calculation: (a) for periods prior to June 30, 2015,  a figure is used based on the historical performance of the Fund’s Class I Shares, since inception, restated to reflect all charges and fees applicable to Class F3 shares; (b) for periods prior to April 4, 2017 but after June 30, 2015, performance is based on the historical performance of the Fund’s Class R6 shares, which have an equivalent expense ratio to the Fund’s F3 shares; and (c) for periods after April 4, 2017, actual Class F3 performance is used, which reflects all charges and fees applicable to Class F3 shares.

Class F3 shares are only offered to certain eligible investors. For additional information, see the Fund’s current prospectus.
