Portfolio Positioning as of 9/30/2022

  • 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 Reynolds Consumer Products Inc, which manufactures and sells household products. We believe they are a strong franchise, and pricing actions are beginning to gain traction. They are currently underearning due to an increase in raw materials such as aluminum. We believe they should benefit as aluminum prices begin to retreat.
  • We also initiated a position in shares of Texas Roadhouse, Inc., a full-service, casual dining restaurant chain. Texas Roadhouse is a high-quality casual diner that has performed well for many years, though more recently has struggled with commodity and wage inflation resulting in margins below target. While the inflation picture is not entirely clear, this is widely anticipated at this point and over time we anticipate they will be able to manage back to target levels.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Devon Energy Corporation, which engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas properties. We opportunistically exited our position in favor of what we believe to be more attractive investment opportunities.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc., an engineering firm and building materials producer. The further inflection in rates is presenting significant headwinds.
