Guru stock highlight

Alaska Air Group (ALK) cut 279 basis points off the Fund’s return, as the stock dove 57.7% from $67.75 to $28.47. Alaska is the fifth-largest airline in the country by miles flown with its legacy routes primarily on the West Coast in addition to some cross-country routes acquired after the acquisition of Virgin America. The company has a strong balance sheet, a cost-efficient fleet and shareholder-oriented management.

According to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, these bonds are granting their holders a 3.49% monthly spot rate.
