FAM Funds, in their Q4 2020 Investor Letter said that they acquired a position in Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: FND), and continuously holds the company because of its attractive valuation. Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. is a specialty retail company that currently has a $9.6 billion market cap. For the past 3 months, FND delivered a 27.15% return and settled at $93.86 per share at the closing of January 28th.

Here is what FAM Funds has to say about Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. in their investor letter:

“In addition to buying new positions as prices fell, we added to several existing positions. We think Floor & Decor (FND) can take share from the big-box hardware stores and “mom-and-pop” flooring stores for years to come. While it was shocking to see so many of their stores closed, we felt confident they would survive; in part, because of their quick pivot to using FaceTime to serve customers and allowing order pickups off the loading docks. FND has not only survived, but thrived as more consumers focus on home improvements.”
