Latest Market Updates*

  • FAANG (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) stocks have accounted for an outsized portion of U.S. market returns in recent years. However, the Morningstar® Wide Moat Focus IndexSM(MWMFTR or “the Index”), has outperformed the S&P 500 Index through July 31, 2020 in many trailing periods including the 2-, 3-, and 5-year timeframes, despite its underweight to FAANGs.
  • Index reviews during market volatility and sell-offs have, at times historically, benefited the index. Recently, the Index allocated to oversold companies like Boeing (BA) and Constellation Brands (STZ) at the end of March 2020 which have since outperformed the S&P 500, as of July 31, 2020.
  • We believe MOAT’s valuations remain attractive signaling upside potential if the market recognizes the mispricing of the portfolio stocks based on Morningstar’s fair value assessments.
