Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

In their words (as of 31 Oct 2016)

The Company's share price and net asset value outperformed the benchmark in October. Stock selection in the energy and industrials sectors contributed positively to relative returns. In energy, our overweight position in Valero Energy was among the top contributors. Shares outperformed over the period following strong quarterly earnings results, as its refineries increased crude oil throughput and it was able to lower the operating costs per barrel. At the security level, our overweight in industrials name Northrop also added value. In contrast, weak stock selection in the healthcare and financials sectors weighed on returns. In healthcare, our overweight position in Amgen was the largest detractor as shares traded lower. At the security level, our lack of exposure to consumer discretionary name Netflix also weighed on relative performance. The stock reported better-than-expected third-quarter earnings results and raised its forward guidance for subscriber growth.
