Guru Investment Theses on Dreamworks Animation SKG Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Dreamworks Animation - May 12, 2014

Dreamworks Animation SKG, Inc. (DWA) is a leading developer, producer and marketer of animated films, TV shows and home entertainment. The company also merchandises and licenses its characters globally. Shares of Dreamworks were down in the first quarter based on slightly lower than anticipated results associated with the movie "Turbo." We believe shares will recover based on this summer's upcoming release of the sequel to the blockbuster "How to Train Your Dragon" and as the market comes to understand the opportunity for Dreamworks to significantly grow its TV and consumer licensing businesses going forward. (Ashim Mehra)

Baron Funds Comments on DreamWorks Animation SKG - Nov 22, 2013

DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. (DWA), a company founded by CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg and David Geffen, is a leading developer and producer of animated films, TV shows and home entertainment. We have invested in and analyzed character-based businesses in the past (Marvel Entertainment, Pixar Animation Studios), and believe the market is undervaluing DreamWorks' content and character library, as well as its opportunity to significantly expand its high-margin consumer licensing business.

From Ron Baron’s Baron Funds third quarter 2013 letter.
