Key Performance Drivers
Flagship and Opportunities shared some key drivers of returns last month:
1) Fears of COVID resurgence trumped by vaccine optimism. The rising tide of vaccine optimism from Pfizer and BioNTech lifted all boats, with all sectors positive in December despite a resurgence in COVID cases.
2) Pro-cyclical rotation. Our more cyclical stocks rose sharply on vaccine optimism (e.g., RDFN +43%, CARG +27%). Our exposure to these sectors should help offset a prolonged rotation out of tech/growth stocks.
3) Resilient Q3 earnings season. Our companies leveraged to secular growth themes like e-commerce and cloud infrastructure generally performed well and beat expectations for revenue and earnings growth.
