Market development

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.date,'llll') ]}}

Markets moved steadily upwards again in April with earnings starting positively. In the US, nearly all indices returned between 3 and 5 percent, led by large and mid cap growth. The Russell 1000 Value trailed the Russell 1000 Growth by 1% and the S&P 500 by 0.5%. Generally the best sectors were financials, transportation and consumer durables while healthcare, energy and utilities struggled. Healthcare's weakness was primarily related to the continuing debate over large-scale changes to the US system as promoted by several presidential candidates.

Expectation of fund manager

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundFacts.date,'llll') ]}}

April wrapped up with nearly three quarters of the market reporting and earnings ahead of expectations, and over 75% of companies exceeding expectations. Little progress was made on the US-China trade front but both sides continued to speak optimistically and discussions were planned for early May. As always, the portfolio will continue to be constructed bottom-up with a focus on valuation, fundamentals and momentum. Today the portfolio continues to exhibit a stronger valuation edge than in recent years as valuation spreads have widened.
