Diamond Hill Capital recently released its Q1 2020 Investor Letter, a copy of which you can download below. The Diamond Hill Small Cap Fund posted a return of -36.17% for the quarter, underperforming its benchmark, the Russell 2000 Index which returned -30.61% in the same quarter. You should check out Diamond Hill Capital's top 5 stock picks for investors to buy right now, which could be the biggest winners of the stock market crash. There weren’t a lot of funds who could deliver these kinds of returns without shorting the market or using aggressive put options.

In the said letter, Diamond Hill Capital highlighted a few stocks and WNS (Holdings) Ltd (NYSE:WNS) is one of them. WNS is a global business process management company. Year-to-date, WNS (Holdings) Ltd (NYSE:WNS) stock lost 18.9% and on June 2nd it had a closing price of $51.74. Here is what Diamond Hill Capital said:

"WNS (Holdings) Ltd. is a business process management services company that benefits from a recurring revenue business model and very high renewal rates. The shares are trading at a meaningful discount to our estimate of intrinsic value due to near-term concerns about the impact of COVID-19 on the company’s client service levels. WNS has net cash on its balance sheet and we believe the value proposition of its services remains very compelling to both current and prospective clients."
