  • Q2 2019 Performance Review

    3-MONTH REVIEW

    • No significant contributors to or detractors from relative performance other than an additive in specific stock selection within Health Care and continued weakness in Energy holdings.
    • One strong performing Health Care technology stock added to relative return for the Fund. The underweight to poor performing pharmaceutical stocks also contributed.
    • Financial stocks in general had relatively strong returns; the Fund’s underweight there detracted from the Fund’s results.

    12-MONTH REVIEW

    • The largest sector allocation impact for the Fund was from the overweight to weak performing Energy stocks.
    • Transactional cash holdings in a period of mostly up movements in valuations detracted.
    • Security selection in aggregate added. Results were strongest in Consumer Discretionary, Health Care, and Materials.
    • Three equipment and supply stocks with outsized returns drove the contributions to excess return within the Health Care sector.
    • Positive results spread throughout individual stocks in several industries within Consumer Discretionary. The absence of tobacco stocks added to relative return.
