Scott Eun prefers to take a longer-term view rather than favour parts of the U.S. market that are driven by momentum.

"We look at our stocks and try to determine whether or not over a reasonable time, typically about 18 months, there are things that will drive a fundamental value shift, something that will trigger markets to recognize that," says Eun, senior vice-president at Boston-based Standard Life Investments (USA) Ltd. and lead manager of the $277-million Standard Life U.S. Dividend Growth. "Whether it happens over a calendar quarter, or over a year, is less germane to us, in making sure that we are right about the stock."

Eun, who holds about 60 names, limits single positions to 3% to 3.5% of fund assets. Focusing on dividend-paying stocks, he aims for lower volatility than the market. He allocates positions to three categories: high-yielding companies, dividend-growers and more speculative names with potential capital appreciation.
