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 R2 - The performance quotations for Class R2 reflect the following methods of calculation: (a) for periods prior to the inception date for Class R2, a restated figure is used based on the Fund's Class A performance, excluding the effect of Class A's maximum sales charge (which does not apply to Class R2) adjusted to reflect the Rule 12b-1 rate differential between Class A and Class R2, which has a higher 12b-1 fee than Class A; and (b) for periods after the inception date for Class R2, actual Class R2 performance is used reflecting all charges and fees applicable to Class R2 shares. Hypothetical performance data for Class R2, as measured from since inception of the Fund using the methodology described above, is not available if the Class A inception date is equal or greater than ten years old. Please refer to the Class R2 performance information for the inception date for Class R2. Please refer to the Class A performance information for the inception date for Class A.

Class R2 shares are only offered to certain eligible investors. For additional information, see the Fund’s current prospectus.
