For your convenience, we have summarized highlights from the call in the notes below:

  • In the second quarter of 2016, the Guinness Atkinson Dividend Builder Fund, ticker GAINX, outperformed its benchmark, with a total increase of 1.40% vs. the MSCI World Index, which was up 0.91%. See full Fund and benchmark performance figures in the Q2 2016 Fact Sheet
  • There were no portfolio changes during the 2nd quarter and the portfolio is currently trading at a discount to the broad market. The 2016 PE multiple is 16x vs. MSCI at 16.8x. 
  • The global equity markets were flat in the second quarter with big currency moves and post-Brexit concerns about European markets. Brexit did not have a big impact on our portfolio because we only own four UK companies and have 5% portfolio exposure. 
  • Even though we did not participate in the rally in materials and utilities our largest weighting to consumer staples contributed to our performance.
  • During the quarter, the top 5 performers were Largan Precision, Aflac, Royal Dutch Shell, Johnson & Johnson and Sonic Healthcare.
  • The bottom 5 performers were Li & Fund, Icap, H&R Block, WPP and Microsoft
