Andy Murray, is Co-Manager of the five star Morningstar rated Becker Value Equity Fund.

He favors a bottom-up stock pickers approach for the long-term. Murray says "the markets, while not cheap, are reasonably valued given the low interest rate environment we are in."

Murray looks for high quality companies that are unloved and undervalued.

One value stock he recommends is Amdocs. Saying the software and services company has a "good management team, strong balance sheet with significant net cast and delivers nice returns on invested capital." Murray also says Amdocs trades on 15x 2016 EPS. Shares of Amdocs is up 20 percent so far this year.
