Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2014


Although the Fund had positive returns, it lagged its primary benchmark.

We trimmed or exited positions in a variety of industries where the rewardto- risk ratio was no longer compelling.

Purchases of new names were made in sectors such as technology, transportation and energy as we felt the reward-to-risk trade-off was more attractive.

While there may be more gains ahead, we believe there is also the potential for greater volatility, and therefore remain cautious in our portfolio positioning.
