Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2020

  • 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 Tech Target Inc., a data-driven marketing servicer. We believe that they are uniquely positioned within the information technology marketing infrastructure. It is our view that growth will accelerate and margins will expand as the company moves further down into small and medium sized businesses and releases new products.
  • We also initiated a position in Williams Sonoma, Inc., a retail home products company. We believe that the company will be able to transfer more sales online, which in turn will allow them to remove unnecessary real estate cost from its model and further expand their margins.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc., a trucking company, consistent with our process of focusing on companies that give us the best risk-adjusted exposure to high normalized free cash flow yield.
  • We also sold the Fund’s position in Varian Medical Systems, a manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating cancer, following the company’s announcement that it will be acquired by Siemens Healthineers AG, a medical technology company.
