Baron Asset Fund recently published its first-quarter commentary – a copy of which can be downloaded here.

In the Q1 2021 Investor Letter, the fund highlighted a few stocks and RingCentral Inc. (NYSE:RNG) is one of them. RingCentral Inc. (NYSE:RNG) is a provider of cloud-based communications and collaboration solutions for businesses. In the last three months, RingCentral Inc. (NYSE:RNG) stock lost 11.1% and on April 26th it had a closing price of $330.51. Here is what the fund said:

"RingCentral, Inc. provides global cloud communications and collaboration solutions across multiple channels, including voice, video, and messaging. Despite continued solid execution with revenue acceleration, RingCentral’s stock corrected during the quarter as the market rotated out of many fastgrowing stocks. With its distribution advantage and the pandemic crystalizing the need for a communications platform that is agile, scalable, and global, we believe that RingCentral remains early in penetrating its addressable market. We believe this should allow sustainable growth for many years to come."
