In its Q4 2020 investor letter, Conestoga Capital Advisors, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. (NYSE:SSD) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. (NYSE:SSD) is a leading provider of structural connectors to the U.S. housing market. Despite reporting better-than-expected growth in its business, investors focused on several negative factors, including concerns about rising raw material prices, tough 2021 comparisons and the halted rollout of mechanical anchors and fasteners with Home Depot. We believe Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. (NYSE:SSD) will continue to benefit from a strong residential housing market particularly in the Southern and Western parts of the U.S. Additionally, the company’s focus on internal improvement with respect to working capital should drive long-term shareholder returns.”

8. Insight Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSIT)

“Insight Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSIT), a previous top-ten holding, was divested in full during the quarter. In conjunction with inline Q1 2021 results, Insight announced the intention for CEO, Ken Lamneck to retire by the end of this year. A new CEO has not yet been announced. Ken Lamneck has been CEO of Insight Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSIT) for over 11 years and is currently 65 years old, so his retirement was not a shock. However, we do consider Lamneck to have been central to shareholder value creation, including through successful acquisitions. A period of uncertainty while leadership is transitioned to an unknown new CEO, as well as share price appreciation led us to conclude more attractive risk adjusted opportunities lay elsewhere in our Portfolio and Bench of potential investments.”

Good Business

Valuation

Management

Investment Thesis

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (NASDAQ:BECN) is a simple business driven by largely non-cyclical, non-discretionary demand. While Beacon has achieved scale in an industry that has consolidated substantially over the last decade, under prior management they were saddled with (1) a challenging and costly integration (2) substantial debt and interest costs, and (3) a separate Interiors business. Under their new CEO they sold Interiors, and are progressing on strategic initiatives. Strong industry fundamentals have led to rapid restoration of financial flexibility and Beacon’s future now looks solid. While expecting a sequential slowdown in growth (in part due to lower y/y storm activity) and a decline in margin, we think enhanced focus on organic growth and structural margin improvement should help reaccelerate future earnings, particularly as replacement demand will likely benefit from the strong build period from 2000-2006.”

6. Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 23

Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC) provides data processing and related solutions. Filings from March 3 show that McCaul bought Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC) stock worth somewhere between $15,000 and $50,000 on November 3 last year.

In addition to Visa Inc. (NYSE:V), Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU), and Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ:HSIC), Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC) is one of the stocks that hedge funds are monitoring.

In its Q4 2021 investor letter, FPA Queens Road, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC), a customer experience solutions provider, spun off from one of our other portfolio holdings (Synnex) in December of 2020, continued to validate its value proposition by adding over 24 new clients in the fourth quarter, continuing a trend. Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC), which expects to achieve above-average market growth and improved margins, initiated a dividend during the year. Given the company’s growth expectations and what we believe to be a very reasonable valuation, we like the investment opportunity Concentrix Corporation (NASDAQ:CNXC) offers.”
