The last few weeks of the month witnessed stronger performance from the Value and more economically sensitive sectors, versus the companies we typically invest in. This is the usual market ‘exuberant reaction’ driven mainly by the latest hopes of a vaccine, optimism of a huge fiscal stimulus in the US following a democratic win and what was then a possible democratic easy sweep. A sawtooth pattern emerges in cyclicals at times such as this as we have explained in previous editions, where they surge above the market for a short period. Thus, we underperformed in the month but easily maintained excess performance across all other time periods.
