“Our purchases during the quarter were balanced with a similar number of sales, including HubSpot, Inc. (HUBS). The company provides a cloud-based, integrated marketing and sales platform that helps in lead generation and maintaining a presence on social media. Although we’re still extremely impressed with HubSpot, we sold the stock because its market cap, over $25 billion, became rather large for the Fund. Within other Wasatch funds with a larger-cap focus, we still enthusiastically own the company.”
