In the Q3 2020 Investor Letter, Wasatch highlighted a few stocks and Gan Ltd (NASDAQ:GAN) is one of them. Gan Ltd (NASDAQ:GAN) provides enterprise software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for online casino gaming (iGaming) and online sports betting applications. In the last three months, Gan Ltd (NASDAQ:GAN) stock gained 22.6% and on December 24th it had a closing price of $18.53. Here is what Wasatch said:
“Another weak stock in the Fund was GAN Ltd. (GAN). Based in the U.K., the company provides Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for online casino gaming and online sports betting. Shares of GAN tumbled in August after the company announced that a large customer, FanDuel, had deployed its own proprietary digital wallet. The news—which meant that GAN would no longer be providing the digital wallet for FanDuel Sportsbook—disappointed investors, who had sent GAN’s stock soaring during the first half of 2020 on hopes that the return of professional sports during the pandemic would substantially boost online gambling. While the loss of the FanDuel project was disappointing, GAN remains profitable on a top-line basis and we believe it is well positioned to benefit from future growth in online gambling.”
In Q3 2020, the number of bullish hedge fund positions on Gan Ltd (NASDAQ:GAN) stock decreased by about 36% from the previous quarter (see the chart here), so a number of other hedge fund managers don’t believe in Gan’s growth potential. Our calculations showed that Gan Ltd (NASDAQ:GAN) isn’t ranked among the 30 most popular stocks among hedge funds.
