Guru Investment Theses on Equinix Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Equinix Inc. - Feb 21, 2014

Following a 100 percent return in 2012, Equinix, Inc. (EQIX)'s shares were down in the fourth quarter and 2013. An uptick in supply and an increase in competition that pressured rents negatively impacted many data center companies in 2013. At its current price, we think concerns are largely discounted in the company's shares. We continue to believe Equinix will deliver strong growth in the next few years and will benefit from higher valuations derived from its planned conversion to a REIT, targeted for early 2015. We remain optimistic about the long-term prospects for the company



From Baron Funds fourth quarter 2013 shareholder letter.

Baron Funds Comments on Equinix - Feb 20, 2014

Shares of data center operator Equinix, Inc. (EQIX) fell on concerns surrounding price deflation in the broader data center sector. In addition, the rise in interest rates muted some investor enthusiasm surrounding the company's potential conversion into a REIT structure. We believe that Equinix will continue to recognize premium pricing relative to other data center operators. This is because Equinix offers its customers the ability to inter- connect with other customers inside the Equinix facilities, allowing them all to achieve faster overall network speeds. We believe the stock is undervalued, given its growth profile, cash flow potential, and the likelihood of its eventual conversion to a REIT structure.



From Baron Funds' fourth quarter letter 2013 to shareholders.

Baron Funds Comments on Equinix Inc. - Aug 07, 2013

Equinix, Inc. (EQIX) the provider of network neutral data centers, fell 14.6% in the quarter. Concerns arose about its conversion to a REIT and its valuation as a REIT in a higher interest rate environment. We continue to favor the company's differentiated business model and barriers to competition, and think the company can continue to grow significantly.

From Ron Baron’s second quarter 2013 commentary.

Baron Funds Comments on Equinix Inc. - Aug 02, 2013

Equinix, Inc. (EQIX) is a leading Internet exchange service provider, serving communications, content and enterprise customers in state-of-the-art data centers. Equinix also offers interconnection services to customers seeking to connect directly with other Equinix customers. We believe that this "tethering" of customers in a network neutral environment creates important competitive barriers that distinguish Equinix from other data center business models. Last year, management indicated its intention to convert the company to a REIT. Shares were pressured this quarter, as the market grew concerned about the company's ability to make this REIT conversion. In addition, REIT shares themselves were under pressure on concerns that rising interest rates would depress their relative valuations in the stock market. We believe that Equinix remains an attractive investment, whether or not a REIT conversion eventually occurs.
