Straight Talk

Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2016


Global health care stocks slid during the period as investors shifted to more economically sensitive sectors.

The Fund underperformed its benchmark, weighed down, in part by its pharmaceuticals and biotechnology holdings.

We view the steady number of drug filings as a signal that innovation remains strong within the sector.
