In their words (as of )

The Company's net asset value outperformed the benchmark in February, while the share price performed in line. Our stock selection in the information technology and consumer discretionary sectors contributed positively to relative returns. In information technology, our overweight position in Apple was the top contributor. News that Berkshire Hathaway had doubled its stake in the company contributed to momentum in the share price. At the security level, our overweight in healthcare name Amgen also added value. On the other hand, our stock selection in the telecom services and industrials sectors weighed on returns. In telecom services, our overweight position in CenturyLink was the largest detractor. Among individual names, our overweight in healthcare name Gilead Sciences also detracted from relative performance as the company provided 2017 guidance below consensus expectations.
