Guru Investment Theses on Caesarstone Ltd

Baron Funds Comments on CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. - May 17, 2016

The stock price of CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. (NASDAQ:CSTE) detracted from performance during the first quarter. CaesarStone is a leading global manufacturer of quartz surfaces for kitchens and bathrooms. The stock price fell over concerns that a recently constructed manufacturing facility was taking longer than expected to ramp up production. We remain positive on our investment in CaesarStone, as earnings growth continues to accelerate from successful new product launches and quartz market share gains vs. other countertop materials, such as granite and marble. (David Kirshenbaum)

Baron Funds Comments on CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. - Nov 06, 2015

CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. (NASDAQ:CSTE) is a leading global manufacturer of quartz surfaces for kitchens and bathrooms. Shares fell sharply in August after the company reduced its full-year revenue guidance on the second quarter earnings call. A negative report by a short seller of the stock also weighed on the stock price. We believe investors overreacted to both events and remain positive on our investment in CaesarStone, as earnings growth accelerates from successful new product launches and quartz market share gains vs. other countertop materials.
