Risks

An investment in the Domini Impact International 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, foreign investing, and style risks. Investing internationally involves special risks, such as currency fluctuations, social and economic instability, differing securities regulations and accounting standards, limited public information, possible changes in taxation, and periods of illiquidity. These risks are magnified in emerging markets.

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.

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

International equities declined for the second straight quarter, with the MSCI EAFE Index down 1.24%. Although returns were fairly strong in most local markets, they were dragged down for U.S. investors by the stronger dollar, which rallied against most other currencies, supported by stronger U.S. inflation and economic growth, as well as the Federal Reserve’s ongoing tightening monetary policy. Global trade concerns escalated, as the U.S. imposed further tariffs on Chinese goods, which were met with the promise of retaliation. After the European Union imposed retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods in response to its steel and aluminum tariffs, the U.S. threatened to place further levies on European autos.

Despite the escalating trade war, ongoing political instabilities, and signs of slowing eurozone economic growth, European equities generally posted solid gains in their local markets, buoyed by strong first-quarter earnings and higher merger and acquisition activity. Economic data was mixed during the quarter, as strong hiring drove unemployment levels down, but industrial activity continued to moderate. Germany’s manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index, which outperformed the rest of the eurozone, fell to an 18-month-low. Even as it announced an end to its quantitative easing stimulus in December, the European Central Bank (ECB) kept a cautious tone, noting increased risks to the economic outlook and indicating that rates will not increase at least until after next summer. Tensions between European Union (EU) supporters and anti-EU nationalists continued to mount throughout the quarter. After a protracted and turbulent general election in Italy, two euroskeptic populist parties—League and Five Star Movement—succeeded in forming a new coalition government, rattling global markets. Germany, the EU’s largest economy, remained stuck in political gridlock, as its two coalition parties continued to disagree over immigration issues. In Spain, conservative prime minister Mariano Rajoy was ousted by a vote of no confidence amid a corruption scandal. Socialist party leader Pedro Sánchez succeeded Rajoy, and reaffirmed the country’s support to EU commitments.

Asia-Pacific equities also generally posted solid gains in their local markets. Australia led the region higher amid lower unemployment, improved consumer sentiment, and accelerating retail sales. Japan was also solid, with unemployment falling to its lowest level since 1992. In May, consumer sentiment improved, while inflation held steady for the second month at 0.6%. Despite strong year-over-year growth in industrial production and exports, Singapore lagged the region due to concerns that global trade disputes would negatively impact its trade-dependent economy. 

Emerging markets generally posted negative returns for the quarter, dragged down by the stronger U.S. dollar, rising U.S. interest rates, and headwinds for the escalating trade war between the U.S. and China. Among emerging markets, Latin America was the weakest, followed by Asia. The market plunged in Argentina after its central bank was forced to take drastic action to stabilize the country’s currency by raising interest rates to 40%. Brazil also saw sharp declines amid fears that a trucker and oil-worker strike would harm the country’s economic recovery. In an attempt to break the strike, the government announced plans to lower diesel prices. Among emerging markets in Asia, Thailand, the Philippines and Malaysia posted the largest losses, while China also declined amid trade uncertainty and tightening monetary policy. In Europe, Turkey saw large declines due to deepening political turmoil that called into question the independence of its central bank.

Fund Performance

The Fund’s Investor shares declined 3.70%, underperforming the MSCI EAFE Index return of -1.24%. Security selection was the largest driver of underperformance, with stronger selection in the consumer staples sector more than offset by weaker selection in information technology and industrials. Sector allocation also had a negative impact on relative results, primarily because the Fund was significantly underweight to the energy sector, which was MSCI EAFE’s top performing sector for the quarter. The Fund maintains this underweight largely due to its exclusion of oil and gas exploration and production companies. Geographically, security selection was weakest in Asia, particularly in Japan, while the Fund’s out-of-benchmark emerging-markets positions also detracted from relative results.

At a security level, the largest detractions to relative results came from the Fund not owning benchmark constituents Shell and BP, which returned almost 13% and 15%, respectively, for the Index. Both companies are ineligible for investment by the Fund due to Domini’s oil and gas exclusion.

Among Fund holdings, the largest individual detractor was Japanese social networking service Mixi, which fell 31.5%. The company reported mixed results for its fiscal fourth quarter, and its Media Platform is expected to remain sluggish due to the suspension of its ticket resale business, TicketCamp, which was discontinued in May due to trademark-related violations. Mixi issued lower-than-expected guidance for its coming fiscal year, expecting declines in sales and operating profits as it invests for future growth.

Another Japanese company that was among the largest detractors was Yamada Denki, a consumer electronics retailer that declined almost 18%. The company reported weak results in May, with a decline in operating profit attributed to restricted purchases and increased use of discounts to reduce inventory levels. Yamada lowered guidance even further below expectations due to the need to rebalance divisional inventories in preparation for a new store format.

Our non-benchmark position in Turkey’s VakıfBank (Türkiye Vakıflar Bankası) also detracted significantly from relative results. The bank plunged nearly 35% amid Turkey’s monetary crisis. With maturities looming on overseas debt, the recent collapse in the value of the Turkish lira could make repayment significantly more expensive for VakıfBank.

Helping offset these weak results, were overweight positions in a number of strong performers. The largest individual contributor for the quarter was French luxury-goods company Kering, which gained almost 28%. The company reported strong first-quarter results, driven by sales growth for its Gucci brand, which saw higher volumes and prices. Kering’s Balenciaga and Yves Saint Laurent brands were also strong, offsetting soft sales for Bottega Venetta.

Two UK grocery retailers were also among the top contributors: Sainsbury’s and Morrisons, which rose almost 30% and 15%, respectively, with both stocks benefitting from improved sentiment across the sector. In late April, Sainsbury’s announced a surprise merger agreement with Walmart-owned Asda. The deal would make the combined entity the largest grocery retailer in the UK, surpassing Tesco, and could lead to greater long-term margin stability for the UK’s large grocers. Morrisons, which reported another quarter of strong sales volume growth, would become the country’s third largest grocery retailer, and could also stand to benefit from ongoing industry consolidation.

Other top contributors included Danish pharmaceutical company Lundbeck, which rose nearly 26%, and Japanese railway operator JR Central (Central Japan Railway Company), which gained 9.5%. Lundbeck reported better-than-expected results for the first quarter, underscored by higher revenues and cost savings, which are expected to be maintained throughout the year. The beat was driven by strong sales for Cipralex, an antidepressant, and for Onfi, a drug used to treat epileptic seizures. JR Central issued a better-than-expected forecast for fiscal-year operating profit, with strong business and leisure travel expected to drive revenues.
