Manager Commentary

Fund Managers

Month in review

  • Positive contributors to relative returns included stock selection in travel & leisure and in banks.
  • Detractors included stock selection in support services and an overweight position in life insurance.
  • At the stock level, our underweight position in WPP, the British advertising and public relations company, contributed to returns. Shares fell as management issued a downbeat outlook and reported lower-than-expected third-quarter sales.
  • Our overweight position in National Express also contributed over the month. The coach operator announced a strong set of third-quarter results, with the company benefiting from particularly strong performance in its Spanish operations.
  • On the other hand, our overweight position in Games Workshop was negative for relative returns. Despite revenue growth and profitability guidance tracking ahead of the market’s expectations, the board announced that there were uncertainties for the rest of the financial year.
  • An overweight position in Ashtead also detracted from performance. As the majority of this construction rental equipment company’s business is in the U.S., the share price struggled on the back of escalating concerns over the maturity of the U.S. economic cycle.
  • Looking ahead

  • Over the month, the largest stock increase was in Tate & Lyle, which we bought following the signing of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which is set to preserve tariff-free access for high-fructose corn syrup into Mexico. This agreement removes a considerable overhang on the shares and should allow investors to focus on the stabilisation of the business under the new management team.
  • The largest decrease was a reduction in our holding in Intermediate Capital Group. The shares have risen strongly since purchase, thanks to growth in its fund management division. Whilst the company’s management continues to execute this strategy well, we decided to lock in some of our profits.
  • In the U.S., continuing interest rate hikes and the ongoing trade war rhetoric of President Trump are likely to continue to cause more volatility in equities.
  • Brexit uncertainty is building as we draw nearer the proposed March 2019 leave date. A no deal Brexit would not be well received by markets but a compromise agreement may be the catalyst needed to release the undoubted medium-term value in the UK equity market, which now yields over 4%. This is attractive compared to both gilts and inflation.
