FPA Capital Comments on Babcock & Wilcox - Jan 30, 2017

We added a new healthcare name to the portfolio in the quarter, but it is too small of a weighting to discuss at this time. We slightly increased the Fund’s Babcock & Wilcox (NYSE:BW) holding as the stock declined a bit more than 6% in the quarter. Thus, we continue to actively manage the Fund by trimming stocks that rise toward their intrinsic value and adding to positions when stock values provide a nice margin of safety and trade at a discount to their fair value.



From FPA Capital's fourth quarter 2016 commentary.
