Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2015


Technology stocks gained over the quarter, largely paced by sector heavyweight Apple.

The Fund outperformed its benchmark, led by our selection of semiconductor and Internet retail stocks.

Internet software and services, along with an out-of benchmark position in consumer finance, detracted from relative results.

We are attracted to several rapidly growing companies offering novel products and services, yet are mindful of valuations,which may have gotten ahead of fundamentals.
