In the said letter, GreenWood Investors highlighted a few stocks and Vertiv Holdings Co (NYSE:VRT) is one of them. Vertiv Holdings Co (NYSE:VRT) manufactures electrical power equipment. Year-to-date, Vertiv Holdings Co (NYSE:VRT) stock gained 46.0% and on August 20th it had a closing price of $16.20. GreenWood Investors cared to mention Vertiv Holdings Co (NYSE:VRT) in its investor letter, though they didn’t say why they really like the stock. All they said is this:
“Vertiv, which makes cooling and power solutions for data centers, reported a 9% drop in second quarter organic revenue. Due to both supply and customer logistical issues, the company had trouble completing customer orders, which are accelerating at a record rate with the widespread increase in data consumption around the world (ending the second quarter with a record high backlog of $1.8 billion). Chris recently detailed Executive Chairman David Cote’s book, Winning Now, Winning Later, in an article which you can read by clicking here. Of course it didn’t take a genius to understand data center capacity was going to have to accelerate around the world just as Vertiv’s stock was cut in half earlier this year. We are excited to own Vertiv for the long-term, as Cote turns it into the Danaher of data-centers. With Cote, we are getting a seasoned manager from Honeywell, but in a much smaller company in an equally large addressable market. We are excited for him to exceed his Honeywell performance given a better and smaller collection of assets with stronger industry tailwinds.”
In Q1 2020, the number of bullish hedge fund positions on Vertiv Holdings Co (NYSE:VRT) stock increased by about 11% from the previous quarter (see the chart here), so a number of other hedge fund managers seem to agree with Vertiv’s upside potential.
