In the Q3 2020 Investor Letter, Greenlight Capital highlighted a few stocks and Synnex Corp (NYSE:SNX) is one of them. Synnex Corp (NYSE:SNX) provides B2B IT services. In the last one year, Synnex Corp (NYSE:SNX) stock gained 17.9% and on January 11th it had a closing price of $87.69. Here is what Greenlight Capital said:
“Historically an IT hardware distributor, SNX began scaling a Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) division in 2014 through a series of acquisitions. Both business segments have attractive organic growth prospects, strong management and good reputations with customers. In January, SNX announced it would spin off the BPO business in the second half of the year. We believe the spin-off will create significant value for shareholders. While IT hardware distributors have low margins and trade at below market P/E multiples, established BPOs have higher margins and trade at premium P/E multiples. We believe the spin-off will reveal that the sum of the parts is worth more than the whole. We acquired our shares at an average entry price of $126.29, or just over 10x FY2021 consensus earnings per share. SNX shares ended the quarter at $140.06.”
