Guru Investment Theses on WuXi PharmaTech (Cayman) Inc

Baron Funds Comments on WuXi PharmaTech - Feb 24, 2014

Shares of WuXi PharmaTech (Cayman) Inc. (NYSE:WX) were strong in the fourth quarter. As the largest Chinese Contract Research Organization (CRO), with an estimated 27% market share, WuXi is a beneficiary of increased pharma outsourcing activity to countries like China and India. Performance during the fourth quarter is attributable to above consensus financial results and a growing pipeline of contract research and manufacturing activity. We retain conviction in the company due to its high growth potential and strong relationships with leading pharmaceutical companies. (Anuj Aggarwal)
