Guru Investment Theses on Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp - May 02, 2014

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. (BAH) is a provider of government IT services. Its share price increased as investors grew more comfortable with demand for its services, in light of the defense industry's established fiscal 2014 budget and increased security threats around the world. Additionally, Booz has proven adept at managing its expense base to synchronize with its revenue growth, and has returned cash to investors via dividends. (Randy Gwirtzman)

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. (BAH)'s share price increased from $13.36 to over $17.38 during the second quarter. The company benefitted by the general news environment highlighting cyber security as a key concern for government and corporate clients.

Baron Funds Comments on Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Inc. - Aug 23, 2012

From Baron Funds' second quarter commentary:

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. (BAH) shares also fell in the June quarter. Booz Allen is an important consultant to our government. The company has long term relationships with government agencies that we think would be hard to duplicate for this cyber security specialist. Booz Allen is now building a commercial business to provide cyber security services, an endeavor we think will likely also be successful. Booz Allen will soon pay its shareholders a special $6.50 dividend. We owned more than four million shares of Booz Allen during the past year at an average cost of $16.89 per share.We expect that Booz Allen, after paying this dividend, could earn more than $1.60 per share the next year.
