Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2020

  • 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 Malibu Boats, Inc., a recreational powerboat manufacturer. Shares of the company have sold off considerably amid coronavirus-driven macroeconomic concerns. However, we believe the company has a clean balance sheet and remain confident in our long term view despite the near term weakness and uncertainties in the boating industry.
  • We initiated a position in shares of PolyOne Corp., a provider of color, inks and additives and other engineered resins.  We believe with the company’s impending acquisition of Clariant Color Masterbatch business, PolyOne will further the resiliency of its business model. We believe this acquisition will create a larger scale player in the attractive liquid and solid colorant business, which will provide a higher earnings base and opportunities for significant synergies.
  • We also sold the portfolio’s position in Paylocity, a cloud based software solutions provider. The company’s fundamental outlook remains strong; however, given the strong performance of the stock since initiating a position we decided to deploy capital to more attractive opportunities at this time.
  • We sold the portfolio’s position in shares of Foot Locker, Inc., an athletic shoes and apparel retailer. We believe that the company’s high mall exposure and increasing supplier direct-to-consumer competition will offset the favorable trends within the fashion sneaker category.
