Keeley Funds All Cap Value Funds Semi-Annual 2013 Commentary

June 12, 2013 | About:

In the first quarter of 2013, the KEELEY All Cap Value Fund (KACVX) climbed 14.55 percent compared to a 12.26 percent increase for the Russell 3000 Value Index. Over the trailing six month period ending March 31, 2013, the Fund rose 18.74 percent compared to a 14.11 percent increase for the Russell 3000 Value Index.

We have been pleased with the Fund’s performance over the past six months and believe we are carrying a great deal of positive momentum into the latter half of 2013. Strong stock selection was the primary driver of the Fund’s outperformance, although our sector allocation also had a positive impact. All ten sectors of the Russell 3000 Value Index generated positive returns during this period, with seven of ten producing double digit returns. Our stock selection was led by strong holdings in the industrials, energy, and consumer discretionary sectors.

From a sector perspective, we do not anticipate significant changes in the near-term. The portfolio is maintaining a cyclical bias, with overweight positions in the industrials and consumer discretionary sectors. Additionally, the Fund’s holdings in financials have increased in recent years (over 26%), and is now almost in-line with the Russell 3000 Value Index. The portfolio also has exposure to more defensive sectors, such as healthcare, which is overweight the benchmark at almost 13 percent.
