Old Mutual MM Equity FoF comment - May 17

2017/07/14 00:00:00
The local equity market was slightly down in May. A surging Naspers share price helped the Industrial Index return 1.4%. Naspers now accounts for around 15% of the FTSE/JSE All Share Index (ALSI) and 20% of the FTSE/JSE Shareholders Weighted All Share Index (SWIX). Industrials were also supported by household goods (Steinhoff), tobacco (BAT) and pharmaceuticals (Aspen) performing strongly in the month. In contrast, general retailers suffered a sharp decline on disappointing earnings reports. Mobile telecommunications and healthcare services (hospitals) also struggled in the month.
Flat to lower commodity prices combined with a stronger rand pummelled resource shares and the subindex lost 4.1%. Forestry & paper, the strongest resources sub-sector this year, pulled back in May. Year to date, the Resources Index is moderately negative. Financials was flat in May with strong gains from banks offset by losses in life insurers. Over the past 12 months, the returns from this sector have lagged inflation.
The FTSE/JSE Listed Property Index (SAPY) was marginally positive in May. The SAPY year-to-date and one year returns of around 3% are well below the outstanding returns of the past 15 years. The rand ended the month about 2% stronger against the dollar. Over 12 months, the 17% appreciation of the rand against the dollar has wiped out most of the gains of local investors' offshore assets.
The managers had mixed performance over the month with Visio and the Multi-Managed Fund doing well whilst Coronation and Prudential lagged the benchmark. Visio did well from their underweight to MTN which fell back over the month, and from overweights in Bidvest and Mpact. Trencor was the key detractor for Prudential, together with Sun International and Datatec. The latter has recovered this month on the back of corporate action. Naspers was a strong performer and Coronation's underweight detracted. Northam, their preference in the platinum sector, was also weaker over the month. Naspers has dominated returns this year and the Fund has demonstrated competitive returns year to date despite the underweight to this counter.
  • Fund focus and objective  
This is a South African General Equity fund aimed at outperforming its peer group in the long term. The equity mandates have a risk profile similar to those of a typical domestic general equity fund and the volatility of the fund is lower than that associated with a very aggressively managed equity portfolio. Capital depreciation is possible in the short term.
