Market developments per 2019-03-31

The Fund ended the month slightly down and underperformed its benchmark, the MSCI World Value Total Return Net Index. Year-to-date the Fund is still up sharply but not enough to keep up with the benchmark.

The market continued to rally over the month be it at a somewhat slower pace as sentiment remains very bullish with investors. The reasons mentioned during the previous months continue to boost the market, in particular the announcement by the Fed (about a slower path of potential interest rate hikes). Bond yields continued to fall during the month which helped push shares up further. The main explanation for the underperformance over the month was lagging stock selection within sectors.

Strong performers this month were Texhong Textile, H&M and Lukoil. Texhong Textiles presented a strong set of numbers in March showing double digit revenue growth and strong growth in operating profit. H&M earnings beat very low expectations sending the share price higher. Lukoil was strong without any specific news flow. On the other hand, Cardinal Health, Arcelor Mittal and easyJet fell sharply. Cardinal Health was under pressure as concerns about health care reforms and opioid lawsuits continue to weight on the share price. Arcelor Mittal and easyJet fell without significant stock specific news flow.

Portfolio developments per 2019-03-31

The investment objective of the Fund is to invest in a portfolio of listed companies worldwide that trade at a discount to their intrinsic value. When investing, the focus will be on strong valuation discipline, cash generation and rational capital allocation. We conservatively estimate the fundamental value of a business and buy with a sufficient discount to create a margin of safety for potential mistakes. The Fund combines a business owner’s mindset with a rational investment process. Historically, value has outperformed growth over the long-term, but value has underperformed growth for an unprecedented period by now. As we believe in reversion to the mean, value investing could offer an attractive investment opportunity going forward.

We made some changes to the portfolio in March. First, we disposed of our position in Centrica, recently the company disappointed again with falling customer numbers and a more challenging cash flow outlook. Although the shares appear to be cheap after the weak performance, and offer some value, we lost conviction on the investment case. Secondly, we added Swatch Group to the portfolio. The Swiss watch producer sold off significantly in the second half of 2018 as investors feared for their exposure to the Chinese consumer. Although we agree that this is a risk, we think the company is attractively valued compared to its long-term earnings potential. The strong balance sheet should also help weather any potential storm. Finally, we adjusted some position sizes. We added to Western Forest and Sydbank, and trimmed Sino Land and Mediobanca.

We believe overall global stock market valuations are elevated, although Emerging and European markets still offers some pockets of attractively valued opportunities. The North American market is quite expensive. A company may appear attractive based on its price to earnings ratio or other headline multiples, but if margins and/or revenues are high, this only gives you limited information about the future returns of an investment. In our investment process, we spent a large portion of our time understanding where profitability should be on an over the cycle basis, as this is what determines the cash flows we will receive as a long-term shareholder.

Our focus is on finding companies that can be bought at a discount to our estimate of intrinsic value. We base our estimate on the Earnings Power Value (EPV) framework of the Columbia Business School. EPV allows us to separate the three valuation components: asset value, earnings power and growth value. This framework improves our ability to analyze what we are paying for, and gives insight into whether a stock is priced with a margin of safety. In addition, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is fully incorporated in our investment process.
