Guru Investment Theses on Zillow Group Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Zillow Inc - Mar 23, 2015

We initiated a position in Zillow Inc. (Z) in the quarter. Zillow is the leading online real estate site in the U.S., offering information on homes for sale and rent, in addition to the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. The company also owns and operates Street Easy, the leading real estate site for New York City. Zillow continues to invest in its brand as the leader in an $8 billion real estate advertising market. The company is merging with number two player Trulia, pending FTC approval. With the transition to online and mobile, we believe Zillow is well positioned to grow meaningfully from the 4% share it has today, and will generate meaningfully more revenue, cash flow, and shareholder value over the next several years.
