Guru Investment Theses on The Carlyle Group LP

Baron Funds Comments on The Carlyle Group - Nov 04, 2015

Shares of The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ:CG), an alternative asset manager, declined in the period. The company continues to perform well in its corporate private equity division. However, its newer divisions in Real Assets, Investment Solutions and Global Market Strategies have faced issues. While poor performance in these areas will likely result in lower near-term distributions, we think Carlyle still holds long-term promise as it launches new products and performance of existing funds may improve. (Michael Baron)

Baron Funds Comments on The Carlyle Group - Mar 23, 2015

Shares of alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (CG) fell in the fourth quarter. The company continues to perform in accordance with our investment thesis, and assets under management remained largely flat in a challenging year. However, lower investment realizations resulted in a lower dividend payout, and lower performance fees resulted in a sharp drop in distributable earnings. Its hedge fund business also performed poorly. On a positive note, Carlyle has increased its diversification and is in an improved position to stabilize distributable earnings. (Michael Baron)

Baron Funds Comments on Carlyle Group - Oct 24, 2014

The Carlyle Group (CG), a leading alternative asset management firm, has been under pressure in the most recent quarter with the stock declining approximately 10%. We took advantage of the weak share price to add to our position. Carlyle manages approximately $200 billion for its clients in diverse strategies and numerous products. Its history of providing solid risk adjusted returns to its clients has enabled it to build sticky relationships with clients who invest in multiple funds. The current decline in its share price is the result of concerns regarding increased regulation and higher rates impacting fund performance. While these factors may affect the company in the near term, they do not alter the long term thesis that we believe Carlyle Group can continue to broaden its product offering and manage considerably more assets. Carlyle Group is a dominant firm in the alternative space, which is growing at twice the rate of traditional managers. Additionally, we feel that Carlyle could grow faster than the industry as limited partners (clients) consolidate their manager selection. While Carlyle’s earnings are more volatile than the earnings of traditional asset management firms, the company’s diverse product lineup should bring some stability to its high margin profits. We believe Carlyle will continue to broaden its product offerings and expand its distribution channels and can significantly increase its assets under management and earnings power over the next few years. (Michael Baron)

Low Prices a Cause for Champagne, Not Concern A value investor looks at the potential of private equity
The markets continue to be hammered and there is a distinct odor of fear hanging over the markets. We are trying to back bounce this afternoon as investors rush to buy tech as it looked “cheap” to them. I have no idea how you get "cheap" out of these valuations, but traders will trade even if it doesn’t make sense. The fact that the price is down does not mean an issue is cheap, but that is a lesson a lot of folks need to learn for themselves. Read more...
