The Morningstar® Wide Moat Focus IndexTM has outperformed the broader U.S. market since its inception in 2007. What is behind the index concept that has achieved such a track record?

US Moats: Ups and Downs in May

Performance Overview

The U.S.-oriented Morningstar® Wide Moat Focus IndexSM ( MWMFTR, or “U.S. Moat Index”) lagged the S&P 500® Index in May (0.51% vs. 1.41%). Despite this underperformance, the U.S. Moat Index remains ahead of the S&P 500 Index year-to-date (10.68% vs. 8.66%).

U.S. Domestic Moats: Ups and Downs

McKesson Corp (MCK US, +17.93%) rebounded in May after facing headwinds in previous quarters. The firm posted solid results for its fiscal fourth quarter which Morningstar equity analysts believe reaffirms their view of the company’s long-term fundamentals. MCK US was the top performer in the U.S. Moat Index in May and remained undervalued in Morningstar’s view at month end. In terms of sector performance in May, information technology was the top contributor to the U.S. Moat Index’s performance, with all five sector constituents posting positive performance. By contrast, the financials, consumer staples, real estate, consumer discretionary, and materials sectors all detracted from U.S. Moat Index performance in May, and were the primary reason for the Index’s underperformance relative to the S&P 500 Index. Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (FOXA US, -11.20%) was the worst performing Index constituent in May, primarily due to disappointing fiscal third quarter results driven by its film studio unit.
