Investments à la Carte Five Picks for the Present Stock: General Motors GM Fair Value Estimate $52 Morningstar Rating Uncertainty High QQQQQ Daily stock price Fair value estimate (Gaps indicate when fair value estimate was under review.) 40 20 01/12 04/12 07/12 Forward P/E 5.6 Market Cap $46.4 billion 10/12 We think GM’s car models are of the best quality and design in decades. The company is already a leader in truck models, so a competitive lineup in all segments, combined with a much smaller cost base, leads us to think that GM will be printing money as vehicle demand recovers. GM had its best December in five years, with total volume up year over year by 4.9% and incentives down 5.3%. Management also said that its pricing increased $500 per unit year over year. An increase in pricing combined with lower incentive spending suggests margin expansion.

English and his team run a concentrated portfolio of 25 to 30 stocks and manage risk by focusing on companies with durable business models, recurring revenues, and healthy returns Total Assets $6.4 billion 60 on invested capital. They’re also wary of short 40 product cycles. It’s a fine long-term holding and also has been a very consistent performer. 20 The fund tends to lag its peers when cyclical fare rules the roost but has outpaced 0 1/3/122/21/124/13/126/4/1 1/4/122/22/124/17/126/5/1 1/10/12 3/1/124/19/126/12 1/5/122/24/124/18/126/11 1/11/12 3/2/124/20/126/13 1/6/122/27/124/23/126/14 1/12/12 3/5/124/24/126/15 1/9/122/28/12 4/25/126/18 1/13/12 3/6/12 4/26/126/1 1/16/123/12/125/1/126/2 1/17/123/7/12 4/27/126/2 1/18/123/13/125/2/12 6/2 1/19/123/8/12 4/30/12 6/ 1/20/123/14/125/3/12 7 1/23/123/15/125/4/12 7 1/24/123/16/125/10/12 1/25/123/19/125/7/12 1/26/123/20/125/11/12 1/27/123/21/125/14/12 1/30/123/22/125/15/12 1/31/123/23/125/16/12 2/1/12 3/26/125/17/12 2/2/12 3/27/125/18/12 2/3/12 3/28/125/21/12 2/6/12 3/29/125/22/12 2/10/124/2/12 5/23/12 2/7/12 3/30/125/24/12 2/13/124/3/12 5/25/12 2/8/12 4/4/12 5/28/1 2/14/12 4/5/12 5/29/1 2/9/12 4/11/12 6/6/1 2/15/12 4/6/12 5/30/1 2/16/124/12/12 6/7/1 2/20/124/9/12 6/8/ 2/29/12 5/8/12 3/9/12 5/9/12 95% of its peers over the past five and 10 1/2/122/17/124/10/125/31/1 years.2/23/124/16/126/1/17 Greg Carlson 10/11/12 Separate Account: Janus Small Company Growth 9/27/12 Category 9 Small Growth Investment Style 9 Small Growth Morningstar Rating QQQQ Asset Allocation Cash US Stock Non US Stock Bond Other –100 –50 0 50 18 Morningstar Advisor February/March 2013 100 Minimum Investment $10 million This strategy’s managers, Brian Schaub and Chad Meade, have only been at the helm for two and a half years but have proven themselves elsewhere. The duo has expertly steered Janus Triton JATTX through turbulent markets since July 2006; that fund has beaten all but one of its small-growth peers on their watch. The Small Company Growth Number of Holdings 88 Total Assets $2.06 billion strategy focuses more purely on small caps (Triton invests in a mix of small caps and mid-caps), but Schaub and Meade have gotten off to a strong start there as well. Their emphasis on quality growers makes this a fine supporting player in a portfolio. Greg Carlson
