Guru stock highlight

C.H. Robinson (CHRW), a leading third-party logistics firm based in the Twin Cities, was hurt by market concerns that larger, better funded companies like Amazon (AMZN) and Uber (UBER), have announced moves into this space. We have been attracted to C.H. Robinson because we see their strategic investments in technology as giving them durable competitive advantages in operating efficiencies and customer retention. C.H. Robinson’s asset light business model sets it apart in the space by focusing on technology and not capital spend on trucks, planes and distribution centers. We see the large tech companies as disruptive to traditional asset

Market Overview Fourth Quarter 2019

2019 was a year for the record books! On the heels of the worst December since the Great Depression, U.S. markets started 2019 with the best January performance in three decades and finished at record highs, posting returns that were among the best in the past 50 years.

Looking at its performance over the past three years illustrates the market’s incredible ability to predict market fundamentals. In 2017, with the new Trump administration and a Republican controlled Congress enacting large tax cuts, investors anticipated tax-fueled earnings growth driving the market up 22% that year.

Over the past year or so, C.H. Robinson (CHRW) benefitted from a pronounced tightening in truckload (TL) supply; however more recently management made the decision to compete on price in order to take share as TL supply loosened relative to 2018’s historical supply crunch. We prefer to invest in businesses that execute strategies that can enhance returns, rather than simply compete on price, so we sold C.H. Robinson.

Guru adds one position in 1st quarter

David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio), the chief investment officer of St. Louis-based Wedgewood Partners, disclosed one new holding in his first-quarter portfolio last week.

The guru’s firm approaches a potential investment with the mindset of a business owner, evaluating a handful of undervalued companies that have a dominant product or service, consistent earnings, revenue and dividend growth, are highly profitable and have strong management teams.

Based on these criteria, the guru established a position in Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) during the quarter. In his first-quarter letter to clients, Rolfe noted he sees “a variety of avenues for sales

We purchased an initial position in C.H. Robinson (NASDAQ:CHRW) in the third quarter and made a small addition to our position soon afterward. C.H. Robinson is a transportation broker whose largest business is full truckload (TL) trucking, with smaller businesses in less-than-truckload (LTL) trucking, intermodal (generally truck trailers or ocean shipping containers carried on railcars), and other forms of transportation. Robinson does not transport goods itself but provides value by matching demand from shipping customers with supply from transportation providers, or “carriers.” In Robinson’s case, those are usually small truckers who do not run sophisticated operations of

The Yacktman Fund (Trades, Portfolio) managers, known for their aversion to risk, reduced 26 portfolio positions and neither bought nor added to any other positions in the fourth quarter, according to a portfolio update Friday.

The Yacktman Fund (Trades, Portfolio)’s pullback may signal caution regarding the current market environment, as the S&P 500 retreated 11% in August and the prospect of a fourth straight quarter of earnings declines looms in 2016.

Third quarter market overview - September 30, 2015

As the year began, many companies were battling a decline in energy prices, commodity prices and a strong dollar. Then, during the third quarter China started to show more incremental weakness in its economy as well, intensifying the weakness in agriculture and commodity prices. The market reacted and the dizzying one-day swing of more than 1,000 points in the Dow Jones Industrial Average on August 24th delivered the event that had been worrying investors, a market correction -- technically a 10% move off of recent highs. The correction was widespread, resulting in negative third quarter returns across every sector except

C.H. Robinson (NASDAQ:CHRW) was a top performer in the quarter and a stock that illustrates our investment approach, where we seek out good companies with a sustainable competitive advantage over the long term. The company is well positioned in both consumer and industrial markets and should benefit as the industrial sector picks up. As the “just-in-time” movement of materials and finished goods grows more complicated, manufacturers and retailers are increasingly outsourcing their purchasing and distribution logistics to external companies.
