Executive Summary
At the halfway point of 2023, we believe Lyrical is having a deceptively good year.
It may not seem that good on the surface since we are trailing the S&P 500 and S&P 500 Value, but the returns of both those indices have been largely driven by a handful of mega-cap growth stocks. Excluding those stocks, our U.S. composites have materially outperformed the rest of the stocks in those indexes this year. We are also outperforming 94% of our Morningstar peer group with our LYRIX mutual fund’s first half returns ranked in the 6th percentile.

Executive Summary
3Q23 was a strong quarter of relative performance; our U.S. strategies outperformed the S&P 500 in both up and down months.
We had a flat quarter of absolute performance, outperforming the S&P 500’s decline of over 3%, and the S&P 500 Value’s decline of over 4%. Year-to-date, our LYRIX mutual fund outperformed 98% of the 382 funds in our Morningstar peer group. 

Large Cap or Mid Cap?

We often are asked what the right size and style box is for our U.S. portfolio. From a style perspective we are clearly deep on the value side of the spectrum. Less clear is where we fit from a size perspective.
As of year-end 2022*, the average market capitalization of our capitalization-scaled (LAM-CS) portfolio construction was $37 billion. This appears significantly smaller than the $234 billion of the S&P 500 Value index or the $151 billion of the S&P 900 Value index. On the other hand, it is significantly larger than the $5.8 billion of the S&P Midcap 400 Value index. So, where should investors place Lyrical? Large Value or Mid Value?
For nearly all our clients, they place us in the large-cap value box, mainly because our portfolio closely resembles the constituents of the S&P 500 Value and S&P 900 Value, once you eliminate the gross distortion of cap weighting.

Don’t Get Your Value from an Index

Lyrical ValueIndex 1 LLoUBR


Value stocks have a long history of delivering market-beating returns. But how you get your Value exposure is a critical decision. For large-cap value, it is tempting to get exposure through low-cost passive products. However, these products have a serious problem: they track the large-cap value indices, and you don’t want to get your value from an index.
