Expectation of fund manager

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

Stocks rose in August despite ongoing trade and geopolitical concerns. America’s bull market in equities has become the longest in history. Growth stocks and stocks with strong price momentum have led the market, presenting a headwind to our value-focused investment process. If history is any guide, this will not last, and value will fall back into favor. The market has also been upended by difficult-to-quantify risks from growing trade tensions, which are garnering more media attention and the attention of investors these days. We are cautiously optimistic that the worst projections will fall short of reality and are confident that the portfolio is well-positioned when value gains prominence again.
