AAR Corp. (AIR) Benefitted From Rebound In Air Miles Travel

Mairs & Power, an investment advisor, released the “Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund” third quarter 2023 investor letter. A copy of the same can be downloaded here. The Mairs & Power Small Cap Fund was down 2.04% year-to-date while the S&P Small Cap 600 TR benchmark was up 0.81%, and the Morningstar U.S. Fund Small Blend was up by 2.91%. The Fund's lack of Energy equities and holdings in the Finance, Technology, Consumer Discretionary, Utilities, and Materials sectors have resulted in year-to-date underperformance relative to the benchmark. Relative outperformance in the consumer staples, real estate, healthcare, industrials, and communications services sectors helped to partially offset this.
