Baron Opportunity Fund Comments on Benefitfocus

Guru stock highlight

April 20, 2017 | About:

Shares of benefits software vendor Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ:BNFT) were down in the quarter after the company reported 2017 guidance that was lower than analysts expected. We are aware of several short-term headwinds, including longer-than-expected implementation periods for large national accounts (resulting in delayed revenue recognition of these sizable deals), slower employer signings because of a sales restructuring (which created the national account team) and uncertainty in the market due to the political situation surrounding the Affordable Care Act. While we believe these headwinds will weigh on reported growth through mid-2017, we don’t believe they impact the significant long-term opportunity. (Neal Rosenberg)

From the Baron Opportunity Fund first quarter 2017 shareholder letter.
