Portfolio Positioning as of 06/30/2021

  • The Fund 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 Criteo SA, an ad-tech player focused on the retargeting ecosystem. The company has faced pressure due to the move away from cookies which has impacted the stock valuation. We believe Criteo is now well positioned to navigate these headwinds due to the company’s substantial efforts to diversify away from retargeting as well as investing more in consumer friendly forms of identification,
  • We also initiated a position in shares of Alliance Data Systems Corp., a consumer financing provider for small to medium size U.S. retailers. We believe the company’s pivot to e-commerce, private label platform upgrades, and the new “Buy Now Pay Later” capability (through Bread) make the company well-positioned to drive stronger than expected growth beyond a snapback in U.S. retail sales.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in A.O. Smith Corp., a manufacturer of water heaters and boilers, in favor of what we believe are more attractive investment opportunities based onour normalized free cash flow methodology.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Discover Financial Services., a financial holding company, after a period of outperformance leading to a market capitalization too large for the Fund.
