Guru Investment Theses on Gartner Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Gartner Inc. - Feb 20, 2014

Shares of Gartner, Inc. (IT), the leading independent provider of research and analysis on the Information Technology industry, rose on reported strength in its core research segment, where contract value grew 12% in the most recent quarter. We expect to see improving sales momentum through 2014 as Gartner expands its sales force, modestly raises prices, benefits from pent-up demand in the U.S. and U.K. federal sectors, and expands its research coverage to serve a new constituency - chief marketing officers. We anticipate the company will continue to return capital via share repurchases, and we believe there is a chance for an accelerated capital return if Gartner adds moderate leverage to its balance sheet.





From Baron Funds' fourth quarter letter 2013 to shareholders.
