Palm Valley Capital recently released its Q1 2020 Investor Letter, a copy of which you can download below. The fund posted a return of 0.79% for the quarter, outperforming its benchmark, the S&P Small Cap 600 Index which returned -32.65% in the same quarter.

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, Palm Valley Capital highlighted a few stocks and Euronet Worldwide Inc (NASDAQ:EEFT) is one of them. Euronet Worldwide is a worldwide provider of electronic payment services. Year-to-date, EEFT stock lost 43.5% and on May 18th it had a closing price of $90.72. Here is what Palm Valley Capital said:
“Euronet Worlwide (EEFT) is an electronic payments provider that offers ATM and point-of-sale services, prepaid mobile airtime and other electronic payment products, and global money transfer services. The majority of revenue comes from Europe. The company has been a strong grower, but the stock was cut in half during the market freefall. We believe the shares offer value.”
In Q4 2019, the number of bullish hedge fund positions on EEFT stock increased by about 31% from the previous quarter (see the chart here), so a number of other hedge fund managers seem to agree with EEFT’s growth potential.
At Insider Monkey we leave no stone unturned when looking for the next great investment idea. For example, we believe electric vehicles and energy storage are set to become giant markets, and we want to take advantage of the declining lithium prices amid the COVID-19 pandemic. So we are checking out investment opportunities like this one. We read hedge fund investor letters and listen to stock pitches at hedge fund conferences. Our best call in 2020 was shorting the market when S&P 500 was trading at 3150 after realizing the coronavirus pandemic’s significance before most investors.
