Recently, the firm has released its Q1 2019 Investor Letter, a copy of which you can download below. It reported year-to-date (April 5th) return of 16.9% outperforming both S&P 500 in $CAD div. reinvested) which brought back 13.5%, and S&P/TSX Composite in $CAD (div. reinvested) which generated 14.4% return.
“Coming off a tough 2018, the fund was able to increase its compound annual return to 14.47% while its cumulative return since inception now stands at 97.04% as of April 5th, 2019. Currently, there are 29 names in the portfolio with our top 10 making up 68.09% of the fund’s net asset value. 72% of those assets are in the U.S., 27% are in Canada and a little over 1% are international. Although 2018 was a disappointing year, we believe we have positioned the portfolio to capture long-term upside while maintaining below average downside risk. This belief is rooted in our accumulation of companies during the Q4 rout with the following characteristics: strong long-term earnings growth potential, dominant market share, high and consistent returns on capital, management with superior capital allocation capabilities and most of all: fair prices.”
