Guru Investment Theses on Cadence Design Systems Inc

Meridian Funds Comments on Cadence Design Systems - Sep 08, 2014

Cadence Design Systems (CDNS) provides software technology, design and consulting services and technology. Its primary product is electronic design automation software for the semiconductor industry. The stock rose as the company and industry transition began to show in its operating results. Specifically, industry consolidation has resulted in an improvement in pricing power. Cadence has successfully transitioned to a recurring revenue model, and we expect it to begin deploying its capital via stock repurchases. We trimmed the position modestly during the quarter.
