Guru Investment Theses on Berry Plastics Group Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Berry Plastics Group Inc. - Nov 21, 2013

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (BERY) is a leading plastics packaging company. The stock fell 9.5% in the third quarter as earnings continued to disappoint. During its Investor Day, Berry Plastics management lowered its upcoming quarter's guidance based on higher input costs and sluggish volumes. On the positive side, Versalite, its innovative plastic cup, is being tested by Subway for cold drinks and by a large midwest convenience store for hot drinks. We remain convinced this cup has significant potential. (David Goldsmith)

From Ron Baron’s Baron Funds third quarter 2013 report.

Baron Funds Comments on Berry Plastics Group - Aug 07, 2013

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (BERY) is a leading plastics packaging company. The stock rose 15.9% in the quarter after pricing a secondary offering in the hole into which we bought more stock. Berry is nearing the launch of its innovative plastic Versatile cup, which we think can take significant share from Styrofoam and paper cups now used for hot and cold drinks.

From Ron Baron’s second quarter 2013 commentary.
