Mason Hawkins Comments on Cemex

August 13, 2013 | About:

Toward the end of the second quarter, we repurchased a small position in Cemex (CX) convertible bonds, which we sold earlier in the year after tightening spreads and a rising equity price pushed the price to our appraisal. More recently, the converts became attractive when investors broadly fled emerging markets, the peso weakened, and the Mexican government paused infrastructure spending. Longer term, we believe Mexico public improvements will increase, and Cemex also will benefit from recovery in the U.S.

From Mason Hawkins' semi-annual 2013 letter.
