Guru Investment Theses on Yandex NV

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

Yandex N.V. (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.

Industry: Online Media » Internet Content & Information
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:YDX.Germany
Yandex NV, was incorporated in Netherlands. It is an internet company in Russia operating search engine. It derives substantially all of its revenues from online advertising. It enables advertisers to deliver targeted, cost-effective ads that are relevant to its users' needs, interests and locations. Most of its revenues are derived from text-based advertising, which uses keywords selected by its advertisers to deliver ads based on a particular user query, the content of a website or webpage being viewed, or user behaviour or characteristics. It believes that it benefits from the following key strengths: with the popular search engine it is at the forefront of search and information retrieval technology, it delivers efficient user services, it has a proven track record of monetization & it attracts and nurtures world-class talent. Its mission is to answer any question internet users may have. It seeks to structure and make easily accessible the wealth of content available on the internet, as well as to actively expand the scope and usefulness of that content. To fulfill its mission, it intends to continuously enhance its users' internet experience, continue to develop services for mobile and other digital platforms and devices, further leverage its broad base of users, advertisers and ad network partners to drive monetization, expand its presence in its current markets, while considering selective expansion into additional geographies, increase the scope, accessibility and usefulness of content on the internet and maintain a talented workforce and a creative and participatory culture. Risks Related to its Business and Industry are: It faces significant competition from major global and Russian internet companies, including Google and Mail.ru, which could negatively affect its business, financial condition and results of operations, The inherent limitations of the available data regarding internet usage and online advertising may make it difficult to assess its markets and its market position, It may have difficulty leasing or purchasing adequate space in central Moscow as needed, which could materially increase its operating costs, its business depends on the continued development and maintenance of the internet infrastructure in the countries in which it operates and it may be held liable to third parties for information or content displayed on, retrieved from or linked to its websites, or distributed to website users, which could harm its reputation and business.
