Guru Investment Theses on CIT Group Inc

KEELEY Mid Cap Dividend Value Fund Comments on CIT Group Inc - Jul 30, 2014

Although the Fund did not have any one company have a major impact on results during the quarter, CIT Group Inc. (CIT) was the top detractor after falling over 6 percent and costing the Fund 10 basis points in performance. Shares of the mid-market financing and leasing company dropped in late April after announcing earnings that were below expectations. The earnings miss was primarily due to lower interest income and a rise in provisions for credit losses. We continue to believe the company is well positioned in the current environment and their access to low-cost debt should foster future growth.
