TimesSquare Capital made the following comment about RBC Bearings Incorporated (NYSE:RBC) in its Q3 2022 investor letter:
"Turning to areas of strength, there were benefits from the Industrials sector. Here we saw a 12% gain from RBC Bearings Incorporated (NYSE:RBC), which manufactures and markets custom bearing products. RBC’s price had run up ahead of its earnings report and we trimmed the position because it was close to our target. The company then reported revenues and earnings that fell shy of expectations, as did the guidance for the subsequent quarter. Orders from its aerospace & defense clients were particularly strong, though RBC’s business is in the process of shifting more toward the industrial markets with a recent acquisition. Though we appreciate the quality of RBC’s operations, we continued to trim the position out of caution."
