Class A Shares Overview

Class A shares are intended for investors who invest through a financial advisor. They carry a front-end sales charge (load) that is paid to the advisor buying the Fund on behalf of the investor. If you do not invest through a financial advisor, please refer to the Investor shares.

Socially and environmentally concerned investors have social, as well as financial, objectives. The Domini Impact Equity Fund seeks to meet these objectives by offering a diversified stock portfolio for long-term capital appreciation that is consistent with social and environmental priorities.

Investment Objective

The Fund seeks to provide its shareholders with long-term total return.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests primarily in stocks of U.S. companies that meet Domini Impact Investments’ social and environmental standards. 

Subject to these standards, Wellington Management Company, LLP, the Fund’s subadvisor, seeks to add value using a diversified quantitative stock selection approach, while managing risk through portfolio construction.

Social and Environmental Standards

Domini evaluates the Fund’s current and potential investments against its social and environmental standards based on the businesses in which they engage, as well as on the quality of their relations with key stakeholders, including communities, customers, ecosystems, employees, investors, and suppliers.

Domini may determine that a security is eligible for investment even if a corporation’s profile reflects a mixture of positive and negative social and environmental characteristics.

Investor Profile

Who Should Invest:

  • Investors seeking long-term growth of capital.
  • Investors committed to the Fund's socially responsible investment standards.

Who Should Not Invest:

  • Investors unwilling or unable to accept moderate to significant fluctuations in share price.

Risks

An investment in the Domini Impact Equity Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured. You may lose money. An investment in the Fund is also subject to market, sector concentration, style, and foreign investing risks. Investing internationally involves special risks, such as currency fluctuations, social and economic instability, differing security regulations and accounting standards, limited public information, possible changes in taxation, and periods of illiquidity. 

The reduction or withdrawal of historical financial market support activities by the U.S. Government and Federal Reserve, or other governments/central banks could negatively impact financial markets generally, and increase market risk which could adversely affect the Fund’s returns.

1.  Domini Impact Investments LLC has contractually agreed to waive certain fees and/or reimburse certain ordinary operating expenses in order to limit Class A share expenses to 1.12% of its average daily net assets per annum until 11/30/18, absent an earlier modification by the Fund’s Board. Subject to certain exceptions, the Fund's Class A shares are subject to a front-end sales charge of up to 4.75%.

The Fund may change any of the policies described above at any time.

Note: On 11/30/06, the Fund, formerly an index fund, transitioned to an active management strategy. 

Certain fees and expenses apply to a continued investment and are described in the prospectus.

The Fund's returns, quoted above, represent past performance after all expenses, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return, principal value, and yield will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Each Fund charges a 2.00% redemption fee on sales or exchanges of shares made less than 30 days after the settlement of purchase or acquisition through exchange, with certain exceptions. See the applicable prospectus for further information. 

The performance quoted above does not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or the redemption of Fund shares.

Subject to certain exceptions, the Domini Impact Equity Fund Class A shares are subject to a front-end sales charge of up to 4.75%. Returns noted above as “without load” do not reflect the deduction of this sales charge. If the sales charge were reflected, such performance would have been lower. See the prospectus or your Service Organization for more information.

Definitions

The Price/Earnings Ratio is a stock’s current price divided by the company’s trailing 12-month earnings per share. 

The Price/Book Ratio is used to compare a stock's market value to its book value. It is calculated by dividing the current closing price of the stock by the latest quarter's book value per share. The P/E and P/B ratio of a fund is the weighted average of the price/earnings and price/book ratios of the underlying stocks in a fund’s portfolio. 

R-squared measures how a fund’s performance correlates with a benchmark index’s performance and shows what portion of it can be explained by the performance of the overall market/index. R-squared ranges from  0, meaning no correlation, to 1, meaning perfect correlation.

Beta is a measure of the volatility of a fund relative to its benchmark index. A beta greater (less) than 1 is more (less) volatile than the index.

Market Overview

For the second quarter, the S&P 500 Index gained 3.43%, with U.S. equities driven higher by exceptionally strong corporate earnings. First-quarter earnings growth for the S&P 500 exceeded 20% for the first time since 2010, as the vast majority of constituents reported better-than-expected results. Although companies were generally upbeat about growth prospects, they cited rising wages, commodity prices, and logistics costs as potential earnings headwinds.

Data releases during the quarter suggested that the U.S. economy gained momentum. Jobless claims declined to historically low levels, with the unemployment rate approaching an 18-year low of 3.8% in May. Wage growth accelerated ahead of expectations, as average hourly earnings rose 0.3% in May. After two months of decline, the Institute of Supply Management’s Manufacturing Index rebounded in May, while strong sales and orders drove the Non-Manufacturing Index to the highest level since 1997. The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Small Business Optimism Index reached a 34-year high, with a record number of companies indicating that the current economic environment is favorable for business expansion. Nevertheless, due to concerns about rising inflation and potential impacts of tariffs, consumer sentiment weakened at the end of the quarter. The housing market was also weaker, due to rising construction costs, supply shortages, and higher home prices and mortgage rates.

The Federal Reserve (Fed) raised benchmark interest rates by another 25 basis points, and signaled the potential for two additional hikes this year. Despite rising uncertainties over the sustainability of growth in light of broader macroeconomic risks—including ongoing trade tensions and slowing growth in Europe—the Fed lifted its economic growth forecast for 2018 and lowered its projection for unemployment.

Fund Performance

The Fund’s Investor shares declined 0.21% for the quarter, underperforming the S&P 500 Index gain of 3.43%. Security selection was the largest driver of underperformance, with particularly poor selection in the financials and information technology sectors, although selection was also weak in consumer staples, consumer discretionary, and telecommunication services. Sector allocation also had a large negative impact on relative results, primarily because the Fund was significantly underweight to the energy sector, which was the S&P 500’s top performing sector for the quarter. This underweight is primarily due to the Fund’s exclusion of oil and gas exploration and production companies. The Fund was also underweight in consumer discretionary, which also outperformed, and overweight in financials and telecommunication services, which underperformed. 

At a security level, the largest detractor from relative results was Cummins, a manufacturer of engines and engine-related components, which declined more than 17%. The company reported disappointing first-quarter results, with lower-than-expected profit driven by various recurring events. Margins in the engine and components segments were negatively impacted by a costly warranty campaign and product campaign, respectively.

Within financials, our out-of-benchmark position in Banco Santander Brasil, the Brazilian subsidiary of Banco Santander, S.A., a Spanish bank, was the largest detractor. The stock declined more than 37% as a result of Brazil’s 10-year bond yield sharply rising throughout June. The treasury gains raised the prospects of investment losses at Santander, whose lending strategy has been a key growth driver in the past, but could now be vulnerable from any further deterioration in the country’s economic growth outlook. Earnings risk for Brazilian banks remains high due to subdued credit growth and net interest margin pressure.

Insurance and investment management group Prudential Financial was also a significant detractor, declining almost 9%. U.S. life insurers have broadly underperformed due to concerns over capital, weakening earnings power, and slower organic growth.

Facebook and Amazon were also among the largest detractors from relative results for the quarter. Facebook was sold from the Fund’s portfolio early in the quarter after we downgraded the company to ineligible for investment, in the wake of revelations about the unauthorized disclosure of 80 million users’ data to Cambridge Analytica. During the period it was still held, the stock returned only 0.2% for the Fund, but over the full quarter it returned 21.6% for the S&P 500. Amazon, which was held for the full quarter, returned more than 17%, but our significant underweight relative to the Index resulted in a large negative relative contribution.

Despite the Fund’s overall underperformance, there were several strong performers that made large positive contributions to relative results thanks to our overweight positions. The largest was from Align Technology, a medical device company that returned more than 36% for the quarter. Align manufactures systems for clear aligner therapy, intra-oral scanners, and 3D digital services used in dentistry and orthodontics. The company delivered excellent results for the first quarter, characterized by better scanner revenue, higher case volumes, and lower expenses. For the second quarter, management maintained guidance ahead of consensus expectations, while also increasing long-term sales guidance, with expectations for demand beyond orthodontics.

NetApp, a leading provider of data storage and networking solutions, gained almost 28% after reporting results for its fiscal fourth quarter that exceeded expectations on both the top and bottom lines. Despite growing competition—as the industry moves toward cloud and chip-based flash storage solutions—NetApp has driven sustained growth through operational discipline and a successful product transition. 

Robert Half, which provides specialized staffing and risk consulting services, gained almost 13%. The company reported solid results for the first quarter, as annual growth accelerated in most temp and consultant staff segments, and gross margins expanded year-over-year. Guidance for the second quarter was also well above expectations.

Global payments and technology company Mastercard returned more than 12% after reporting better-than expected earnings for the first quarter and lifting its full-year revenue forecast. The firm benefitted from a weaker U.S. dollar during the first three months of the year, as tourists traveling in the U.S. spent more on credit-card purchases, and Americans traveling abroad also showed strong purchasing behavior. As a whole, cross-border spending rose 32% compared to the first quarter of 2017. This growth was expected to decline due to a drop-off in consumers using their credit-cards to fund cryptocurrency purchases. Mastercard’s cross-border growth also benefited from Chinese lenders issuing credit cards with foreign-payment networks. 

The fund also benefitted from not owning benchmark constituent Berkshire Hathaway, which declined more than 6%. The conglomerate holding company is not approved for investment by Domini due to significant investments in nuclear power.
