Donald Yacktman Comments on Oracle Corp

September 09, 2013 | About:

As mentioned earlier, at the end of the quarter we acquired a position in Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL). Over the last few years we have purchased many positions in established technology companies where the growth rates have slowed but we believe there is significant free cash flow and the valuation is very attractive. We have referred to these investments as “old tech.” These stocks seem to lack a natural home buyer as they pass from growth managers who often pay high multiples for what they perceive to be long-term growth to value managers who dislike the rate of change that can occur in the technology industry due to innovation and competition.

From the Yacktman Funds' second quarter 2013 commentary.
