Guru Investment Theses on Shutterstock Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Shutterstock Inc. - Nov 10, 2015

Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE:SSTK) is the leading online provider of royalty-free stock photography to consumers and enterprises. Shares of Shutterstock were down in the quarter based on concerns around Adobe’s launch of their own competitive offering, Adobe Stock. Adobe increased its competitive positioning against Shutterstock by offering lower prices in certain segments and by integrating image buying into their proprietary software workflow. We believe that the increasing level of competition from Adobe, combined with the departure of Shutterstock’s CFO, created too much uncertainty for us with respect to the company going forward. We exited the position in the quarter.

From Baron Opportunity Fund's third quarter 2015 letter.

Baron Funds Comments on Shutterstock Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Shutterstock, Inc. is the leading online provider of royalty free stock photography. Shares were down during the second quarter in the wake of Adobe’s launch of a rival stock photo product based on its acquisition of a small European competitor. We believe Shutterstock’s localized marketplace dynamics and unique search capabilities differentiate it. Adobe has tried unsuccessfully to enter the stock photo market several times before. We think Shutterstock will gain market share in royalty-free images and accelerate its initiatives in music and video footage licensing, enterprise sales and international expansion. (Ashim Mehra)
