Insider Buys at 52-Week Highs
Several companies have reported group insider buying or pricey singular insider buying as their companies near or hit their 52-week highs. The following three companies have reported these insider buys throughout the month of July. Watching group insider buying (especially at high prices) is important because it can signify a collective faith in the stability and potential for additional growth in a company. It can also be beneficial to note insider buys with large transaction amounts because insiders typically will not invest their money into a company if they know they are going to lose it.

KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Comments on Exelis Inc
The Fund’s top position during the quarter was Exelis Inc. (XLS), a former spin-off of ITT Corp. (ITT), and Exelis also recently spun-off a division of their own in Vectrus Inc. (VEC). During the quarter the stock rose over 37 percent and added 46 basis points of performance to the Fund. Shares of the defense contractor jumped sharply in February after they agreed to be acquired by rival Harris Corp. (HRS) in a deal valued at $4.75 billion. While we believe there may be good synergies between the two companies, valuations became high enough that we exited the position soon after the announcement. More...

KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Comments on Intrawest Resorts Holdings Inc
The second largest detractor during the quarter was Intrawest Resorts Holdings Inc. (SNOW) which fell over 26 percent and cost the Fund 24 basis points in performance. Shares of the leading mountain resort and adventure company were negatively impacted by the rise of the U.S. dollar, since almost half of their revenue is generated in Canada. Despite the revised guidance due to the currency impact, we believe the long-term fundamentals remain intact. More...

KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Comments on Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc
Although energy stocks did not have a material impact on our results during the quarter, Helix Energy Solutions (HLX) was the Fund’s leading detractor after falling over 37 percent and detracting 38 basis points of return from the Fund. Despite having exposure to longer-term, offshore energy projects, Helix was not immune to price pressure given the dramatic weakness in the price of oil. With continued uncertainty around the price of the commodity, coupled with the fact that Helix and other service providers may be more vulnerable to an extended decline, we decided to exit the position during the quarter.

John Keeley’s KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Q1 2015 Commentary
In the first calendar quarter of 2015, the KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund (KSCVX) climbed 2.35 percent compared to a 4.32 percent rise for the Russell 2000 Index. After lagging for much of the last twelve months, small cap stocks rebounded in the first quarter, especially in March where they significantly outperformed their larger peers. A potential factor in this outperformance was the continued rise of the U.S. Dollar, which has climbed largely in response to global monetary authorities reacting to a weak growth outlook by easing monetary policies. More than 20 countries have eased monetary policy in 2015 and these extraordinary measures have facilitated a great deal of currency volatility in recent months. The impact of a strong dollar is mixed with respect to the U.S. economy. On a positive note, cheaper import prices will benefit the U.S. consumer and should continue the low inflationary environment that has contributed to recent economic expansion. On the other hand, the stronger dollar will be a headwind for U.S. exports, especially for multinational companies which we believe was a factor in the recent outperformance of small-cap stocks (which tend to have a domestic focus) More...

John Keeley's All Cap Value Fund Fourth Quarter Commentary 2014
In the fourth calendar quarter of 2014, the KEELEY All Cap Value Fund (KACVX) climbed 0.94 percent compared to a 5.31 percent rise for the Russell 3000 Value Index. For the year ending December 31, 2014, the Fund increased 2.91 percent compared to a 12.70 percent rise for the Russell 3000 Value Index. Although equities rebounded from a challenging third quarter, a number of the issues that facilitated much of the recent volatility continue to exist. The volatility in the price of oil garnered the majority of the attention here in the U.S. although growing concerns about the efcacy of global growth deepened toward the end of the year. Global deationary pressures have become the heart of these concerns and although the European Central Bank (ECB) has communicated their desire to consider Quantitative Easing (QE), it is difcult to project its effectiveness given the structural reforms needed at a local level. Despite the strong bounce in equities during the quarter, and especially in small caps which lagged for much of the year, broadly speaking, investors continued to rotate toward more defensive sectors. In the fourth quarter, the top performing sectors in the Russell 3000 Value Index More...

Michael Price (Trades, Portfolio), manager of MFP Investors, likes to buy his stocks from companies that are sailing on rough waters. He does not go for the nice and comfortable stocks that are a guaranteed win – well, as guaranteed as you can get in the market; we all know nothing is promised when it comes to investing – instead, he looks at companies that are selling their shares 30-40% below their estimated intrinsic value.
