Guru Investment Theses on Yandex NV

Baron Funds Comments on Yandex N.V. - May 29, 2014

Yandex N.V. (NASDAQ:YNDX) is the leading search engine provider in Russia. The stock was a detractor in the first quarter due to a decline in the Russian ruble and rising geopolitical tension over Crimea. Although we expect the conflict to negatively impact the company's growth rate going forward, we continue to hold shares in Yandex due to, in our view, its strong competitive positioning and positive long-term growth prospects relative to its current valuation.



From Baron Funds' first quarter 2014 commentary.
