Guru Investment Theses on Gartner Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Gartner - Jan 26, 2016

Shares of Gartner, Inc. (NYSE:IT), a provider of syndicated IT research, gained after reporting several impressive forward-looking metrics. We believe that growth in the contract value of its research subscriptions and trends in its salesforce productivity are approaching levels sufficient to drive margin expansion. In addition, its client retention rates are at all-time highs. We believe that Gartner has potential to generate accelerating revenue growth and significant growth in earnings and free cash flow. We believe this will continue to lead to consistent return of capital in the form of ongoing share buybacks.

Baron Funds Comments on Gartner Inc. - Jan 14, 2016

We have owned Information Technology company Gartner, Inc. (NYSE:IT) since 2007. The company is the leader in IT research and analysis, with a highly valued brand in the IT community. Since our initial purchase, Gartner’s annual revenues have grown from $1.1 billion to $2.1 billion today. Gartner’s market is vast and its penetration rate is less than 3%. The industry is rapidly evolving and growing in importance, leading users to turn to third-party providers such as Gartner for insights into trends.
