Overview

Investment Strategy

The goal of the Fund is to create an opportunistic portfolio that can seek attractive businesses across all market caps, industries and sectors.

Using our signature Davis Investment Discipline, the Fund has outperformed the S&P 1500® Index since Davis began managing the Fund.

"By being highly selective and rejecting the vast majority of companies in the index, we’ve uncovered businesses with highly attractive earnings growth, yet selling at some of the lowest valuations we have ever seen. We believe this sets the stage for attractive returns in the years ahead.”

– Portfolio Manager Chris Davis

Selective Attractive Growth Undervalued

Distributions

2023 Distributions as of 01/08/24

This information on 2023 distributions is intended for existing shareholders

As large shareholders ourselves, we are conscious of tax costs and make every effort to be tax efficient.

Capital gains result from appreciation in the portfolio. The funds' long-term investment approach means that this appreciation may have occurred over an extended period of time. The majority of the gains are long-term and generally subject to lower tax rates than short-term gains or dividend income.

Share Class Record Date Ex-Date Payable Date Qualified Dividend Percentage Ordinary Income Return of Capital Short-term Capital Gain Long-term Capital Gain Reinvestment Price
Class A 12/7/23 12/8/23 12/11/23 100% 0.5619 - - 1.79 36.26
Class C 12/7/23 12/8/23 12/11/23 100% 0.195 - - 1.79 25.36
Class Y 12/7/23 12/8/23 12/11/23 100% 0.70 - - 1.79 39.02

Shareholders should not use this information for tax reporting purposes. Form 1099 will be sent at a later date for all tax reporting.

The table above includes the percentage of 2023 dividend and net short-term capital gain distributions, by fund, that are eligible for reduced tax rates as "qualified dividend income" (QDI). QDI-eligible amounts, including any net short-term capital gains, are reported to shareholders in Box 1b of Form 1099-DIV. For those shareholders who do not receive a Form 1099-DIV, QDI-eligible amounts can be determined by applying the relevant percentages from the table to the dividend and net short-term capital gain distributions shown on the shareholder's 2023 year-end account statement. Individual questions should be referred to your tax advisor.
