Summary

Cambiar Opportunity has built an impressive long-term record.

As of March 05, 2014, the fund has assets totaling almost $834.89 million invested in 36 different holdings. Its portfolio consists primarily of shares of large companies.

After a blockbuster 2009, this fund was headed for a mediocre 2010. Through the end of the third quarter, it was struggling quite a bit, in large part due to the fund's energy picks, which suffered in the aftermath of the Gulf of Mexico spill. But the market's end-of-the-year rally treated the fund particularly well, and it ended the year up 19 percent. That was good enough to land it in the top 10 percent of Morningstar's large-blend category. The fund has also had an encouraging start to this year, with its positions in Halliburton and Chevron paying off particularly well in the opening months of the 2011. At the same time, retailer Target was a huge detractor from the fund's performance in the first quarter. Compared to its peers, this fund has a slightly higher-than-average exposure to foreign companies. For instance, Flextronics International, which as of the end of 2010 was the fund's second-largest holding, is based in Singapore. The fund has returned 23.99 percent over the past year and 7.06 percent over the past three years. 

Since 2001, the fund has finished six separate years in the top 10 percent of Morningstar's large-blend category. As of the end of the first quarter, the fund's trailing 10-year returns landed it in the top 9 percent of that same category. The fund has returned 22.19 percent over the past five years and 6.24 percent over the past decade.
