“Shares of longtime holding HEICO Corp. (HEI), a provider of aircraft replacement parts, lost more than onethird of their value in a little over a month due to the broader concerns about the aviation industry. We recognized HEICO as a high-quality, wellmanaged business that we thought would be less affected by Covid-related developments due to its presence in the aerospace and defense industries. We held onto the position, allowing the Fund to benefit as the stock ultimately surpassed its precrisis highs in mid-November.”
