Guru Investment Theses on CoStar Group Inc

Baron Opportunity Fund Comments on CoStar Group - Feb 21, 2017

CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSGP) has been one of the Fund’s longest investments. As we described earlier, the stock fell when CoStar’s management announced an incremental $20 million investment to target a $200 million, high-margin incremental and recurring revenue opportunity. CoStar’s stock reached a high of just under $225 this summer but fell to a low of $180 after this announcement. We thought the market significantly overreacted and decided to “max out” (we can buy up to a 5% position at cost) our CoStar investment. Over the 15 years we’ve been investors in CoStar, we’ve witnessed first-hand the company’s successful track record of investments and believe this latest one will be no different. The stock has already recovered a good amount, and sits around $200 at this writing.

Baron Opportunity Fund Comments on CoStar Group - Feb 21, 2017

Shares of CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSGP), a real estate information and marketing services company, fell in the fourth quarter on news that it is planning a $20 million investment for 2017 to expand its research, sales, and marketing capabilities. We believe this strategy will enable CoStar to upsell existing LoopNet customers to its core CoStar product, potentially driving $200 million of incremental annual recurring revenue at very high margins. We think trends in the core business are excellent, with accelerating CoStar Suite information services revenue growth of 14% and total company operating cash flow margins that improved from 19% to just over 35% year-over-year in the most recently reported quarter.

Baron Funds Comments on CoStar Group - Oct 11, 2016

The Fund’s biggest position, CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSGP), is an information and marketing services provider to the commercial real estate industry. The company has built a proprietary database through primary research and data collection research over a 20-year period, creating high barriers to entry. We believe its investments in R&D and a doubling of the sales force will help increase customer penetration. In addition, CoStar has made two key strategic acquisitions – Apartments.com and ApartmentFinder – that we believe offer cross-sell synergies and will accelerate growth in the vast multi-family market. CoStar currently has retention rates in the low 90% range, giving great visibility into the future earnings stream. We believe margins will improve toward 50% given the high operating leverage.

Shares of CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSGP), a real estate information and marketing services company, increased on outstanding financial results. Revenue growth accelerated to 25%, margins expanded 14% year-over-year, and earnings almost tripled. CoStar grew in its core commercial real estate market and captured share in the multifamily space. We believe CoStar is poised to generate accelerating organic revenue growth and significant margin expansion as it leverages recent investments in sales headcount, product expansion, and multifamily marketing.

Baron Funds Comments on CoStar Group - Nov 04, 2015

Shares of CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSGP), the leading provider of information and marketing services to the commercial real estate industry, detracted from third quarter performance. Investors appeared cautious about the magnitude of CoStar’s 2016 marketing investments to support its multifamily initiative. We see strong early traction in the multifamily space and believe that investments in marketing will yield meaningful returns. Over time, we believe the multifamily business can evolve into an incremental $1 billion business with 50% margins. (Neal Rosenberg)

Baron Funds Comments on CoStar Group Inc - Mar 23, 2015

Shares of CoStar Group, Inc. (CSGP), the leading provider of information and marketing services to the commercial real estate industry, contributed to performance in the fourth quarter. We attribute this to continued robust financial performance, early synergy generation from the acquisition of Apartments.com, and better relative performance from higher multiple growth stocks over the ownership period. Ongoing investments in R&D and a doubling of the sales force will, in our view, help increase customer penetration, while the acquisition of Apartments.com extends CoStar’s reach into multi-family lead generation.
