Market development

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

US Markets endured a difficult February as widespread fear over the spread of COVID-19 led to a significant sell-off in the final week. Expectations of a negative long-term impact on the worldwide economy have dampened investor sentiment. The S&P 500 fell 8.23% while growth indices were a bit better as measured by the Russell 1000 Growth which declined 6.81%. Value as a style again trailed growth with the Russell 1000 Value dropping 9.68%. Size did not present significant deviations, with small and mid caps lower by nearly the same amounts again and growth outpacing value.

Expectation of fund manager

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

Market movement in February was influenced by a variety of factors, early in the month as the Democratic contest for the nomination took several turns and later in the month as COVID-19 fears built with cases spreading around the globe. Returns were moderately positive through three weeks but the final week saw the S&P 500 decline over 11%. Early March will provide more clarity on the Democratic nomination with Super Tuesday results sure to narrow the field. With earnings expectations continuing to be slashed as a result of COVID-19, we would expect markets to remain quite volatile over the near term. The fund will attempt to capitalize on this volatility, refreshing the portfolio with holdings that have more attractive valuations while making sure fundamental quality and business momentum are not severely impacted.
