Credit Quality Unrated Market Cap $26 billion QQQQ YTD Stock Price Compared With Fair Value Estimate Daily stock price Fair value estimate 80 (Gaps indicate when fair value estimate was under review.) 60 5/2/11 8/2/11 11/2/11 2/2/12 After a few years of investing in research and development, bolstering its salesforce, and pruning its product lineup, Covidien has returned to prominence in the medical-device arena. The company’s strong product pipeline, a management team dedicated to maximizing returns on investment, and favorable secular trends bode well for its prospects. The company established a strong moat around its business, particularly in devices, and represents a compelling long-term investment opportunity. Covidien built its device business on its technological know-how and distribution network, which resulted in leadership positions across most of its product categories. As long as the company doesn’t fall too far behind in its technology, it is essentially assured a steady market share and growth. Alex Morozov Mutual Fund: Janus Triton JATTX Category 6 Small Growth Asset Allocation Cash US Stock Non US Stock Bond Other Investment Style 6 Small Growth Morningstar Rating Morningstar Analyst Rating QQQQQ Expenses 0.93% Total Assets $3 billion –100 –50 0 50 100 This small-growth fund has been on a roll lately. In the past, that might have been a red flag for a Janus fund, but this one has become a success by focusing on sturdy companies rather than taking big risks. Managers Chad Meade and Brian Schaub started their careers at Janus during the firm’s brutal performance in the 2000–02 bear market. As a result, they stick with companies that possess sustainable competitive advantages and trade at undemanding valuations. The fund has excelled during their six-year tenure, shining in both rallies and choppy markets. A modest 0.93% expense ratio seals its appeal.

While this portfolio can have a cyclical bent at times, the managers have kept it out of deep trouble by limiting stock-specific risk and making prudent calls, such as avoiding most big banks going into the financial crisis of 2008.
