Guru Investment Theses on Dun & Bradstreet Corp

John Rogers Comments on Dun & Bradstreet Corp - Aug 03, 2016

In addition, credit specialist Dun & Bradstreet Corp. (NYSE:DNB) rose +18.67% after a strong earnings report. After some disappointing numbers in 2015, Wall Street lost faith that the company would get back to its traditional growth rates. This quarter revenues were strong in the U.S., margins were materially better than expected, and so the adjusted earnings per share hit $1.18 (well above the $0.95 consensus). We think Dun & Bradstreet has a solid plan to keep growing, so we plan to remain patient—as we have been all along.
