Guru Investment Theses on Globe Specialty Metals Inc

Ron Baron Comments on Globe Specialty Metals Inc. - Aug 07, 2013

Globe Specialty Metals, Inc. (GSM), a dominant producer of silicon metals, fell 21.5% in the quarter when the company reported production outages and increased manufacturing costs in the first quarter, which is atypical for what we consider a very well-run operation. More concerning is the continued depressed price environment for silicon and silicon metals, which we had expected to rebound by now. The company announced a share repurchase and it continues to pursue strategic acquisitions.We are content to wait for the business to turn around.

From Ron Baron’s second quarter 2013 commentary.
