It was negatively impacted by parks. As all their markets open up they think traffic will be better than before COVID. The subscriber stats were not as strong as people had expected. They have an unmatched level of content. It will be a buy if you think the subscriber numbers will continue to improve.

The consumer staples sector had been an under-performer. Now it is still a headwind. It is a defensive piece for a portfolio, however.

It is one of her larger positions. It is going to continue to be a very solid investment. They are continuing to build their businesses that have a big competitive moat around them. She thinks this a pretty good entry point for a very high quality company.

computer software / processing
(A Top Pick Oct 07/20, Up 24%) Environmental and water themes. They had a very strong quarter. There are a lot of good things happening there. She has been adding to it recently. There is a lot of runway and they are well positioned.
It is still 40% off its pre-COVID high. They now have good bookings and load factors. Flights will continue to be added to the market. Business travel is a bit more of a question mark. She thinks it will catch on again. They may still be able to cut costs and get profitability back to pre-COVID levels before traffic has fully returned.
The payout is pretty high on their 5% dividend. If you want the yield it is a good option, though.

biotechnology / pharmaceutical
The whole group has traded together. There have been some big pull backs. We have to get past them. There is certainly no change to the drivers of the business. This is probably not the worst time to own them.
