Guru Investment Theses on Caesarstone Sdot-Yam Ltd

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. (David Kirshenbaum)

Baron Funds Comments on CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd - Mar 24, 2015

CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. (CSTE) saw its stock price rise in the fourth quarter. CaesarStone is a leading global manufacturer of quartz surfaces for kitchens and bathrooms. Performance was driven by a strong earnings beat for the third quarter and management’s rosy outlook, 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.

Baron Funds Comments on CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. - May 29, 2014

CaesarStone Sdot-Yam Ltd. (NASDAQ:CSTE) is an Israeli-based manufacturer of engineered quartz surfaces for kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities. CaesarStone invented the first quartz surface over 25 years ago and today has leading market positions in 42 countries, including the U.S., Australia, Canada and Israel. Quartz countertops offer an exciting growth story, having outgrown the $33 billion global countertop market by four-fold over the last decade, while still representing just 8% of the market, vs. granite at 27%. Consumers like quartz over granite for its superior scratch and stain resistance, variety of design options and comparable price point. We think CaesarStone can double its revenues and expand margins over the next five years, as construction activity rebounds (particularly in the U.S.), quartz penetration increases, and the company introduces new, higher priced products. Management is making significant investments to expand its manufacturing capacity in anticipation of demand. (David Kirshenbaum)
