Portfolio Positioning as of 09/30/2021

  • 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 CBOE Holdings, Inc., a high-quality, capital-light exchange business in the early stages of an emerging multi-year revenue growth transformation. Over the past few years, CBOE has quietly built a differentiated data and analytics-focused global trading solutions platform that will benefit from new product expansion in both Europe and Asia.
  • We also initiated a position in shares of Brooks Automation, Inc., a company with two high quality businesses, one exposed to semiconductor fab automation and one exposed to fast growing subsegments of the Life Sciences market, namely sample management as well as Cell & Gene therapy. With the semiconductor business in the process of being sold to a private equity firm at a generous price, we believe the Life Sciences business is trading at an attractive normalized free cash yield and at a discount to comparable peers with a significant war chest to invest in organic as well as inorganic growth.  
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Hill-Rom Holdings, an American medical technology provider, after the company was acquired by Baxter, Inc., a medical technology company, in favor of other investment opportunities.
  • We sold the Fund’s position in Dorman Products, Inc., a supplier of automotive replacement parts, in favor of what we consider to be more attractive investment opportunities consistent with our normalized free cash flow methodology.
