For more than 50 years, Davis New York Venture Fund has built wealth through recessions and expansions, crashes and bubbles, fear and euphoria. In 2020, our decades of experience proved invaluable, allowing us to chart a steady course through a tumultuous year that included the culmination of a decade of economic expansion, followed by the worst economic contraction in a century. A year that began with the stock market surging to a record high, succeeded by the fastest 30% market drop ever. A year that witnessed the highest unemployment since the Great Depression and the biggest upside payroll surprise
Zoom Video Communications (ZM) gave back a portion of its impressive 2020 advance in the quarter and detracted from relative performance. It provides video telephony and online chat services through a cloud-based, peer-to-peer software platform. "Zoom" became a verb in 2020, and the magnitude of the company's customer growth in 2020's work-and-learn-from-home environment has been remarkable. We believe Zoom is in the nascent stages of a multiyear growth opportunity.

At the end
There is a commonly held belief that larger companies are inherently less risky investments than smaller ones. The logic behind this belief is fairly simple to understand - people trust that the big, established brands they see all around them will continue to exist and make money, and that these brands have a better chance at continued success than less well known businesses. But does that mean investors should prefer larger-capitalization stocks? In a recent letter to investors of his Oakmark Funds, portfolio manager Bill Nygren (Trades, Portfolio) cautioned against such sweeping generalizations.

This groundbreaking news has many seeing the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. We are now closer than ever to having an effective vaccine approved for Covid-19, and while this may not have immediate effects, in the long term it will contribute greatly to the world's recovery from the pandemic.
