Ron Baron Watch

  • Dollar Cost Average on Under Armour

    Here's a history lesson. From late September 2007 to July 2008, Under Armour's (NYSE:UA)(NYSE:UAA) stock dropped from $8 to $3 per share (split adjusted); now it's five times higher. This is going to happen again.

    Last October, I compared Nike (NYSE:NKE) to Under Armour, and while Nike is off just a few percentage points, Under Armour has been crushed, down 57% since this time last year. Today one of the largest athletic apparel brands has a market capitalization under $7 billion. To put this into perspective, SNAP, the owner of the Snapchat social media platform, is valued at $16.5 billion. No way Snapchat is more valuable than millions of people wearing Under Armour sneakers.


  • Bargain Stocks With Strong Earnings

    Companies with growing earnings per share (EPS) are often good investments as they can return a solid profit to investors. According to the discount cash flow (DCF) calculator, the following are undervalued companies that have grown EPS over a five-year period.

    The EPS of Cheesecake Factory Inc. (CAKE) grew by 10% over the last five years.


  • Baron Capital - Fueling the FANGs: The Future Is All About ‘Personalization’

    Since a massive breakout year in 2015, the group of stocks known as FANG -- Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google (now called Alphabet) -- has been a hotly-debated topic among investors. They averaged returns of 83% between them in 2015 and posted another solid year, albeit without the same degree of outperformance, in 2016. As of early September, 2017 has been more of the same, with all four comfortably pacing ahead of the broader market. The continued strength of these household names fosters natural questions about whether they are becoming overvalued or if the growth stories being priced into the shares have run their course.

    When looking at investments, it is very difficult to predict what is going to happen next from a macro, political, or economic point of view. What we can do is identify and endeavor to capitalize on the big trends shaping growth. Cloud computing, digital advertising and e-commerce are a few examples of seismic trends that have meaningful investment impact. The very best companies in these spaces, ones that have massive growth opportunities, sustainable competitive advantages, and great management teams, will reap the biggest rewards, in our view.

  • Rising Book Values and Margins of Safety

    The following companies have grown their book values per share (BV/S) over the last 10 years.

    BV/S is calculated as total equity minus preferred stock, divided by shares outstanding (EOP). Theoretically, it is what shareholders will receive if the company is liquidated. Total equity is a balance sheet item and equal to total assets minus total liabilities. Because the BV/S may not reflect the company’s true value, some investors check the tangible book value to confirm their investment ideas.
