Guru Investment Theses on Trimble Navigation Ltd

Meridian Funds Comments on Trimble Navigation - Sep 08, 2014

Trimble Navigation (TRMB) provides location-based solutions to its customers that enhance their productivity and profitability. The recovery in construction end markets and continued strong demand from the farm economy resulted in strong overall financial results for the company and a strong stock price. We trimmed the position as it began to exceed the upper end of the market cap range that we invest in.

Meridian Funds Comments on Trimble Navigation Ltd - Jun 19, 2014

Trimble Navigation, Ltd. (TRMB) was also a top contributor during the period. Trimble Navigation’s GPS solutions continued to gain traction in the marketplace, which drove strong fundamental performance. Trimble Navigation’s products enable customers to increase overall productivity and reduce costs, which we believe creates strong demand for their products. Based on the low market penetration across myriad industries and geographies, we continue to view the company as very well positioned.
