Bill Frels Comments on CH Robinson Worldwide Inc - Jul 31, 2014

Freight shipper and global supply chain consultant C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (CHRW) gained 21.76% and 9.34% respectively for the second quarter and first six months, and was a strong contributor to Fund performance. The firm’s efforts to better service high-end customers resulted in a favorable report in the first quarter and helped reverse a lackluster, two-year performance trend. As the requirement for “just-in-time” freight delivery becomes increasingly important to a company’s profitability, customers will turn to third-party logistics firms like C.H. Robinson to coordinate shipments and generate the information customers need in real time to manage their inventories and deliveries.

Bill Frels Comments on C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc - Jun 25, 2014

On the other side of the equation, our position in C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (CHRW) with a decline of 10.20% for the quarter was the largest detractor from performance, in part due to falling short on fourth quarter earnings estimates. A freight shipping firm located in Eden Prairie, MN, C.H. Robinson also provides global supply chain consulting and logistics management.

Baron Funds Comments on C.H. Robinson Worldwide - May 21, 2014

Shares of the leading transportation broker C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (CHRW) detracted from first quarter performance after the company reported disappointing earnings. Though truckload freight volumes are improving, C.H. Robinson is experiencing margin pressure as cost of capacity increases faster than its ability to pass pricing to shippers. We believe this issue will correct as 2014 unfolds and gross volumes accelerate. Longer term, although we think C.H. Robinson should continue to gain share and benefit from the secular trend of transportation outsourcing to leading logistics firms, we sold our shares for a profit. (Matt Weiss)

Mairs & Power Balanced Fund Second Quarter 2014 Commentary
While the pace of the economic recovery was somewhat better than expected during the quarter, we continued to keep our primary focus on the long-term fundamental attributes that make companies profitable. While attentive, we are not swayed by the macro-economic details underpinning global market events. By emphasizing the long-term view, we can make the subtle, opportunistic adjustments to company positions over time that keep portfolio turnover low and tax consequences in check. Our first mutual fund, the Mairs & Power Growth Fund, founded in 1958, provides a good illustration of this approach, which is employed by the Mairs & Power Balanced and Mairs & Power Small Cap Funds as well. Portfolio turnover for the Growth Fund, compared to its peers, the Morningstar U.S. Large Cap Blend category, was substantially lower for each of the past 10 years. As a result, the Fund’s annual realized taxable capital gains exceeded $1.00 in only two of the past 10 years.
As measured by the Standard and Poor’s Total Return (TR) Index, the stock market advanced 5.23% for the quarter ending June 30, 2014. The market’s strength occurred against a mixed backdrop characterized by a downbeat adjustment to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) (a key barometer of economic health), a rekindling of the War in Iraq, and hints that higher inflation and rising yields might be just around the corner.
The quarter’s biggest economic news was the unexpectedly sharp downward revision of the first quarter’s GDP growth rate from -1% to -2.9%. Like a house guest who won’t leave, the effects of winter’s record cold snap endured and played a major role in depressing the benchmark growth measure, which opened up questions about the long-term hardiness of the U.S. recovery.
Meanwhile, as the Iraq War began appearing on the front pages again, the markets experienced some déjà vu: Would this be like 2003 all over again, when America first conquered Baghdad? The answer turned out to be a “no.” Shrugging off short-term inflationary fears from rising energy prices, the markets behaved with much more equanimity than they did 11 years ago when America’s energy independence goals were still far in the future. Instead, our energy selections were able to benefit from new access to cheaper domestic oil reserves as well as growing demand for improved technologies related to fracking.
Concerns about rising yields and the inflation rate were short-lived as well. Analysts found their expectations subverted when the benchmark 10-year Treasury rate declined from a high of more than 2.80% earlier in the quarter to 2.53% by the end of the period, and the Barclays Capital Government/Credit Bond Index gained 1.92%. Elsewhere, the Fed continued to dial back its monthly bond purchases by an additional $10 billion more per month. In short, the combined threats of the seemingly everlasting Polar Vortex, the Iraq War and inflationary fears could not dampen investor enthusiasm for stocks during the second quarter.
Future Outlook
Everybody likes a winner. And, if the stock market was any gauge during the second quarter, there was a lot to like. Stocks extended their winning streak for the sixth consecutive quarter, as measured by the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index – a phenomenon surpassed only six other times since 1928. After such historic gains, though, should cautious investors grow concerned about the second half of the year? We don’t think so. Successful investment approaches never depend on the positive or negative market performance of any single quarter. At Mairs and Power, we base our portfolio decisions on the facts about companies, not the markets. In particular, we endeavor to identify and invest in those companies that have shown their ability to achieve consistent, above-average growth from a position of demonstrable and durable competitive advantage.
Looking toward year-end, we will continue to closely evaluate corporate earnings and revenue against the multiples we view to be still slightly above historical levels. The price/earnings (P/E) multiple of the S&P 500, a key gauge of corporate earnings health, stood just above its long term average of around 15.5 at quarter-end, almost exactly where it ended the first quarter. This is further proof to us that stock prices continue to be influenced more by actual, organic company earnings and revenue growth than by the Federal Reserve’s waning stimulus program.
While we believe economic conditions appear sufficiently strong to support this current, positive earnings trend, a market correction in the near term would not surprise us. The advantages of investing in well-diversified portfolios, rebalanced regularly, provide one of the better, more reliable routes for meeting long-term goals regardless of the quarter. By focusing our attention on companies and how they perform, we remain confident in our ability to identify, over the course of a full market cycle, those profitable, well-managed firms likely to outperform their competitors regardless of marketplace events.
Balanced Fund Performance
For the second quarter and six months ending June 30, 2014, The Mairs & Power Balanced Fund gained 3.82% and 5.92% respectively; in line with its benchmark composite index (60% S&P 500 Stock Index and 40% Barclays Capital Government/Credit Bond Index), which gained 1.92% and 3.94%, for the periods.
The pace of the economic recovery continued steadily through the first half of the year. It seems a little surprising that it was only 12 months ago last May when the market went into full flight to safety mode after the Fed announced it would scale back the stimulus policy of quantitative easing (QE) sometime in the fall of 2013. All in all, the market stayed in a cool, calm and collected mood during the first half of the year and took war, stimulus tapering, hints of inflation and rising yields in stride.

In general, our selections in energy and higher dividend stocks benefited the portfolio. America’s move to greater energy independence which began more than a decade ago has continued to benefit firms like Schlumberger (SLB) whose businesses are concentrated in oil and gas exploration. Accordingly, Schlumberger proved to be a top contributor to Fund performance for both the past quarter and the past six months through June 30, and gained 20.97% and 30.90%, respectively. Since 2008, Schlumberger has made major investments in technology innovations, product reliability and better processes. As it gains market share, the firm continues to hold leading market positions in proprietary software, patents, and major equipment.
Another strong contributor to performance in the first half of the year was global supply chain consultant C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (CHRW), which gained 21.76% and 9.34% respectively for the second quarter and first six months. The firm’s efforts to better service high-end customers resulted in a favorable report in the first quarter and helped reverse a downbeat, two-year performance trend. At its attractive levels of value, we continued to add to our position in C.H. Robinson during the first half of the year.
Healthcare company Medtronic, Inc. (MDT) also contributed to performance, gaining 3.61% and 11.10% for the second quarter and first six months, respectively. Pending a shareholder vote either later this year or in 2015, however, Medtronic is expected to merge with medical device supplier Covidien Plc and change its legal domicile to Ireland. Once completed, the merger will create a taxable event for Fund shareholders who will realize a long-term capital gain estimated at $5.5 million or $0.75 a share. As always, Mairs and Power is committed to a policy of low portfolio turnover, and low exposure to taxable gains; we view this tax event as an anomaly.
Performance detractors included Pentair (PNR), IBM (IBM) and Target (TGT). However, we did not trim any of our positions as we continue to view these selections favorably over the long term.
On the income side, we saw our companies increase their dividends at a rate that outpaced the dividend for our benchmark through the first half of the year. Additionally, interest rates generally declined, especially bonds with durations of 10 years and beyond on the Treasury curve. Overall, bond prices improved during the first half of the year. Accordingly, we maintained a concentration in investment-grade bonds with longer durations as we saw a tightening in yield spreads in the U.S. Government sector. We still think more may be gained on the fixed income side as the Federal Reserve continues to taper back on quantitative easing. For investors who prefer a single vehicle that can straddle the equity and fixed income markets to take advantage of growth opportunities as well as favorable movements in the debt markets, we believe the Mairs & Power Balanced Fund continues to offer an effective way to do so.
