Guru Investment Theses on HomeAway Inc

Baron Funds Comments on HomeAway Inc. - Feb 21, 2014

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY), the leading online website for the vacation rentals, rose 46.2% in the fourth quarter. HomeAway reported strong results that beat street estimates for sales and cash flow and posted a sequential acceleration in listing growth. The company recently launched a new service called Pay Per Bookings (PPB), and early results were encouraging. We believe PPB will provide nice incremental growth, not cannibalize, the core subscription business and increase the company's overall opportunity and growth rate. We continue to consider HomeAway an industry leader that is in the early innings of converting a traditional business to a digital Internet approach, and we think cash flow can grow dramatically over time.

Baron Funds Comments on HomeAway Inc. - Nov 22, 2013

We trimmed our position in HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY) due to concerns regarding slowing listings growth and that the company's new initiatives may be less impactful than previously expected.

Baron Funds Comments on HomeAway Inc. - Nov 21, 2013

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY) was down 13.5% in the third quarter. HomeAway is the #1 player in online vacation rentals with over 700,000 paid listings. We believe the stock's performance during the third quarter was impacted by a sell-side downgrade of the stock to equal-weight based on concerns around slowing listings growth. We continue to hold shares as we believe HomeAway listings growth will reaccelerate, that the company is pursuing a number of exciting new initiatives, such as online bookings, and that the company is in the early innings of consolidating a highly fragmented market. (Catherine Chen)

Baron Funds Comments on HomeAway - Nov 06, 2013

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY) is the leading website for vacation home rentals. Homeowners generally pay an annual subscription fee to HomeAway to showcase their rental properties to the site's users. We believe this business model has classic 'network effects,' whereby more listings attract more renters and vice versa. Shares fell in the quarter over concerns about a slowdown in new property listings on the site. We believe that listings growth will reaccelerate as the company introduces new pricing plans, which should also allow the compan y to capture higher reven ues per listing. We believe that HomeAway is in the early stages of consolidating a large, fragmented market, which should allow it to capture significantly higher revenues and profits.

Baron Funds Comments on HomeAway Inc. - Jun 06, 2013

HomeAway, Inc. (AWAY), the leading online provider of listings and services to the vacation rental industry, rose 48% in the quarter due to strong fourth quarter results. We admire HomeAway's business model and positioning and believe that the company can grow its cash flow multiple fold going forward, as it adds listings, grows revenue per listing and increases its margins through scale. Though this opportunity is not lost on investors, the stock had fallen late last year because the rate of growth was decelerating and the company did not meet earnings expectations. We added to our position believing the stock was attractive at the lower valuation and that results were soon to accelerate. We were rewarded this quarter when just that occurred and the stock was re-rated higher.

From Baron Funds’ first quarter 2013 commentary.
