Aristotle Capital’s Value Equity Strategy stated the following regarding Sysco Corporation (NYSE:SYY) in its first quarter 2024 investor letter:

"During the quarter, we sold our positions in Phillips 66 and Sysco Corporation (NYSE:SYY) and invested in two new positions: Lowe’s Companies and TotalEnergies.

We have owned Sysco, one of the largest food distribution companies in the world, since the fourth quarter of 2022. During our holding period, Sysco’s CEO Kevin Hourican has made progress transforming various aspects of the business, including implementing new technologies able to assist customers with their own changing menus and needs. Through leveraging its scale and purchasing power, we continue to view Sysco as well positioned to gain further share of the highly fragmented U.S. food distribution market, all while sustaining its more than 50-year streak of increasing dividends. Though the company meets each of our criteria for investment, we decided it was the best candidate for sale to fund the purchase of Lowe’s Companies, which we believe is a more optimal investment."
