In the said letter, Miller Value Partners highlighted a few stocks and Workday Inc. (NASDAQ:WDAY) is one of them. Workday Inc. (NASDAQ:WDAY) is a software company. Year-to-date, Workday Inc. (NASDAQ:WDAY) stock gained 9.9% and on July 24th it had a closing price of $182.78. Here is what Miller Value Partners’ said:

“Workday is one of the “software as a service” (SAAS) leaders. We looked at it last year as we did work to understand the space. At the time, we didn’t think it offered enough upside, but in the market selloff, it went from $200 to $107. While we didn’t catch it at the lows, we bought it in the $150s where we thought it still offered 50% upside. For a name this kind of market loves, we thought this was quite attractive. Many of its peers had already recovered all of their lost ground but the market was worried about near-term weakness from customers pushing out tech projects. This created a great buying opportunity for us. Workday leads human resource management cloud solutions and is nicely growing its newer financial services offering. It has a sizeable total addressable market, especially relative to its current market cap and revenues. At 9x EV/Revs and 40x EV/EBITDA on next year’s numbers, it’s not cheap on the surface, but we think it’s reasonably priced for a leader with good growth prospects that should be able to compound capital for a long time.”
