Guru Investment Theses on Fairway Group Holdings Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Fairway Group Holdings Corp - May 05, 2014

Fairway Group Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:FWM), the New York-based food retailer that combines specialty natural foods along with conventional groceries, fell 58% in the quarter. The company announced weak results, slower expansion plans and a management shake-up ...really disappointing developments. We see the promise of creating a successful chain of differentiated supermarkets, but execution has been poor. We reduced our position and are monitoring both the results and the search for new leadership.





From Baron Funds' first quarter 2014 commentary.
