Shares of regional casino company Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN) increased on strong betting activity after the early September launch of the Barstool Sportsbook app. Penn owns a 36% stake in Barstool, with an option to increase its ownership to 50%. The company also reported better-than-expected financial results, driven by robust margin growth across its assets. The resulting increase in cash flow, combined with a recent equity offering, should help Penn pay down debt on its balance sheet and make additional investments.

Dear Baron Growth Fund Shareholder:


Baron Growth Fund (the "Fund") returned 10.95% (Institutional Shares) during the quarter ended September 30, 2020, and has gained 9.87% year-to-date. Performance in both periods compares favorably to the Fund's primary benchmark, the Russell 2000 Growth Index (the "Benchmark"), which gained 7.16% for the quarter and 3.88% year-to-date. Performance also compares favorably to the S&P 500 Index, which measures the performance of publicly traded large-cap U.S. companies. That index gained 8.93% for the quarter and 5.57% year-to-date.

Shares of Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN), a U.S. regional casino company, increased as the company completed an equity and convertible offering deal and increased its liquidity. Penn has seen a quick rebound in revenues at recently opened properties and its margins are improving as revenue builds while keeping costs low by delaying its ramp of labor and marketing to pre-COVID-19 levels. Penn anticipates it will generate 2019 EBITDA levels at 95% of 2019 revenue. Its online sports betting deal with Barstool should be an additional positive over time.

Dear Baron Focused Growth Fund Shareholder:


It has been a volatile first half to the year. Baron Focused Growth Fund’s (the “Fund”) investments fell in the first quarter due to concerns about the Coronavirus and its impact on these businesses. Those investments then experienced dramatic rebounds in the second quarter as the U.S. economy reopened, business returned, and many companies had improved balance sheets with capital raises to be certain they would survive the economy’s shutdown. The Fund increased 40.67% (Institutional Shares) in the second quarter. The Russell 2500 Growth Index (the “Index”), the benchmark against which we compare

Dear Baron Growth Fund Shareholder:


Baron Growth Fund (the “Fund”) returned 27.46% (Institutional Shares) during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Markets soared during the period, boosted by unprecedented fiscal and monetary policy, early indications that global economic activity is improving, and optimism regarding the timing and availability of COVID-19 vaccines. On a year-to-date basis, the Fund declined just 0.97%. This compares favorably to the Fund’s primary benchmark, the Russell 2000 Growth Index (the “Benchmark”), which declined 3.06%.

Baron Growth Fund

How has Baron Growth Fund performed prior to and during the crisis?

Neal Rosenberg: The Fund has had strong relative performance so far this year. Through the end of May, the Fund was down just over 3% on a year-to-date basis. We were around 350 basis points ahead of our benchmark, the Russell 2000 Growth Index, which had declined about 6.65% over the same period. Most important, the Fund had generated almost 700 basis points of outperformance from positive stock selection, which is where we devote our time and our resources with our team of 37 analysts

Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN), the largest operator of regional casinos, fell in the quarter over concerns about subdued consumer spending and the company’s leveraged balance sheet. The company’s results have been quite strong, and the new projects they have opened recently in Kansas, Ohio, and Massachusetts have ramped up nicely and are earning good returns. We believe that the stock trades at a significant (one-third) discount to its asset value and that its balance sheet will improve materially from free cash flow generation and the repayment of loans advanced to an Indian tribe to build a new casino, which

Over the past week we’ve seen several large insider buys as well as several coming from the companies’ CEOs. It is interesting to note when a CEO, or even a CFO, buys because these insiders supposedly have the most intimate knowledge of their company's workings.

In the quarter, we increased our investment in Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN). Penn is the largest regional casino operator. The company is highly acquisitive and well diversified, with less than 20% of its cash flow coming from any one property. Penn has a strong pipeline of projects. Its casinos in Kansas, Toledo and Columbus are rapidly growing; we expect the rebranding of its recently acquired Hollywood St. Louis casino and the opening of two new racetracks in Ohio to boost results in 2014. Longer term, the company should be able to continue to invest in its properties and potentially

There are few company names that come to mind when talking about the motorsports industry, and International Speedway Corporation (ISCA) is one of them. This market giant operates 13 motorsports stadiums, including the infamous Daytona 500 and Talladega Superspeedway and hosts over 100 events during the racing season. The firm relies on the motorsport segment for 70% of its revenue, and is majority owned by the France family, which also owns the privately held NASCAR. However, this once popular sport has lost some of its fame from the 2000s and today, it might not be the most profitable business. Let’s
