About Risk 

Fund performance is sensitive to stock market volatility. Smaller companies are generally subject to greater price fluctuations, limited liquidity, higher transaction costs and higher investment risk than larger, established companies. A nondiversified fund may be subject to greater risk by investing in a smaller number of investments than a diversified fund. Investments in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.

Time Period Rating Rating (Load Waived) Funds in
Large Growth
Category
Overall ** *** 1470
3 Years ** *** 1470
Based on Risk-Adjusted Returns.

The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

© 2016 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; (2) may not be copied or distributed; and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers is responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on how a fund ranks on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure against other funds in the same category. This measure takes into account variations in a fund's monthly performance after adjusting for sales loads (except for load-waived A shares) redemption fees, and the risk-free rate, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. Load-waived A share star ratings do not include any front-end sales load and are intended for those investors who have access to such purchase terms (e.g., plan participants of a defined contribution plan). Not all A share mutual funds for which Morningstar calculates a load-waived A share star rating may actually waive their front-end sales load. Therefore, Morningstar strongly encourages investors to contact their investment professional to determine whether they are eligible to purchase the A share without paying the front load. The Morningstar Rating may differ among share classes of a mutual fund as a result of different sales loads and/or expense structure.

Insights & Analysis

Commentary

A Word On The Markets as of Jun 30, 2016

Turmoil following Britain's vote to exit the European Union left major global equity markets with mixed results for the second quarter of 2016.

The outcome of the June 23 "Brexit" vote sent stocks into a two-day tailspin. However, the market's subsequent rebound regained much of the lost ground, leaving some indexes in the black for the three-month period. The British referendum capped a quarter marked by rising stock market volatility, as a range of economic and geopolitical factors had investors on edge. By quarter-end, the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury had fallen below 1.5% amid many investors' flight to quality assets.

U.S. stocks advanced early in the period on positive economic news, including strong retail sales, job market gains and higher energy prices. The continued slow-but-steady economic growth led to expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) would likely raise interest rates at its June meeting. But, after a disappointing May jobs report, the Fed left rates unchanged amid new doubts about the health of the economy. U.S. stocks mounted a brief recovery in the days following the Fed announcement, only to fall sharply in the wake of the Brexit vote.

For the full three-month period, the Dow Jones Industrial Average11 recorded a 2.07% gain, while the broader S&P 500 Index12 advanced 2.46%. The technology-laden NASDAQ Composite Index13 fell 0.56%. In general, small-cap U.S. stocks outperformed their large-cap counterparts during the quarter.

Globally, Brexit loomed over equity markets in the months leading up to the June 23 vote and continued to dominate investor concerns in the aftermath of the referendum. European stocks, which rose early in the period, suffered heavier post-Brexit losses than U.S. shares, fueling a 1.46% decline in the MSCI EAFE Index14 of developed-market international equities. By contrast, China's post-Brexit stock market losses were relatively moderate.

Performance Summary 

Eaton Vance Atlanta Capital Select Equity Fund (the Fund) underperformed its benchmark, the Russell 1000 Index1 (the Index), for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, returning -0.06% for Class I shares at net asset value versus the Index's 2.54% return.

  • U.S. large-cap markets moved higher during the second quarter, with the Russell 1000 Index gaining 2.54%. Eight of the 10 economic sectors within the Index saw positive returns during the quarter. Performance was driven by traditionally defensive sectors like telecommunication services, utilities and consumer staples. Previously weak sectors like energy and materials experienced strong gains on improving commodity prices. Information technology and consumer discretionary lagged for the quarter.
  • The Fund underperformed the Index during the quarter, driven primarily by stock selection. Sector allocation also had a net negative impact during the quarter.
  • On the positive side, information technology aided relative performance. Financials, energy and health care were areas that notably detracted from performance.

Contributors 

Factors contributing to the Fund's relative performance compared to the Index during the quarter:

  • Selection was positive in two of the seven sectors owned by the Fund, information technology and consumer staples. At the industry level, lack of exposure to the underperforming technology hardware storage & peripherals industry helped, as did selection in the food & staples retailing group.
  • The Fund's underweights to information technology and industrials were helpful from an allocation perspective, as were its overweights to materials and health care.
  • The Fund's top five individual performance contributors included two financial companies (Markel and White Mountain Insurance) and a health care firm (Teleflex), as well as lack of exposure to two information technology names (Apple and Microsoft) that are large Index constituents.

Detractors 

Factors detracting from the Fund's relative performance compared to the Index during the quarter:

  • Stock selection was negative in five of the seven sectors owned by the Fund and was weakest in financials, health care and materials. From an allocation standpoint, the biggest detractor was the Fund's lack of exposure to energy. At the industry level, stock selection was challenging in the capital markets group.
  • Lack of exposure to the oil price-sensitive energy sector, which made a substantive move higher during the quarter, dampened relative performance. Underweights to defensive, yield-oriented sectors and industries such as telecommunication services, utilities and real estate investment trusts (REITs) were additional detractors from an allocation perspective.
  • The Fund's five primary individual performance detractors included two financial positions (TD Ameritrade and Affiliated Managers Group), two information technology names (Alliance Data Systems and Checkpoint Software Technologies) and a consumer discretionary company (TJX Companies).

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

With equity markets near record highs, investors have a lot to consider as they look at the current landscape. Anemic global growth, historically low interest rates, terrorism, a presidential election and the United Kingdom's recent decision to leave the European Union (EU) could all lead to periods of increased market volatility. We continue to believe that the best solution is to focus on high-quality equities, which should perform well in rising markets, while potentially providing downside protection in more volatile periods.

As of quarter-end, the Fund contained 28 stocks representing seven of the 10 economic sectors comprising the Index. Relative to the sector weightings in the Index, the Fund was overweight financials, materials and consumer discretionary. The Fund was underweight industrials, consumer staples, information technology and health care and had no exposure to energy, utilities or telecommunication services.
