Guru Investment Theses on Staples Inc

GoodHaven Funds Comments on Staples - Jan 27, 2017

Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) was forced to call off its merger with rival Office Depot due to anti-trust issues, but still retains a significant scale advantage in its core business. The company has struggled in recent years in response to changes in technology and retail trends, but appears to be approaching an inflection point where growth may begin to resume – something we are watching carefully. Hewlett Packard Enterprise successfully completed one divestiture and announced two others – all have helped to move shares higher in 2016. During the year, we bought shares of Verizon when its stock price weakened in response to a forecast of flat growth for a year or two. Over time, we expect the wireless business will remain incredibly stable, wireless spectrum will be a valuable asset, and the company will have significant embedded pricing power.

Yacktman Fund Comments on Staples - Feb 05, 2016

Staples (NASDAQ:SPLS) was weak after the Federal Trade Commission challenged its proposed merger with Office Depot due to anti- trust concerns. The company is a significant free cash flow generator and inexpensive even though the industry is under intense pressure. There could be significant additional upside if Staples is able to ultimately prevail in its attempt to acquire Office Depot.
