In the Q1 2021 Investor Letter, the fund highlighted a few stocks and CDW Corp (NASDAQ:CDW) is one of them. CDW Corp (NASDAQ:CDW) is a provider of technology products and services for business, government and education. In the last three months, CDW Corp (NASDAQ:CDW) stock gained 34.7% and on April 23rd it had a closing price of $182.61. Here is what the fund said:

"Shares of CDW Corporation, a value-added reseller that provides integrated information technology solutions, contributed to performance. The company reported strong fourth quarter earnings and issued 2021 guidance ahead of investor expectations. As the economy continues its postpandemic recovery, we believe CDW will be in a strong competitive position that will allow it to compound earnings at a low double-digit rate. Technology is becoming an ever more critical and complex area of investment for businesses worldwide, and we believe CDW is well positioned to benefit from this trend."
