Protecting the Perimeter

Cybersecurity at Scale

  • Cybersecurity is an $85B addressable market increasing 15% per year according to Gartner Group
  • Cloud deployment is transforming security protocols by introducing perpetual upgrades/enhancements
  • World #1 cybersecurity provider sees double-digit growth ahead as customer spend continues to increase

Keep Me Safe – Working from Home is no longer a Covid thing. It’s an emerging component of our New Normal, made possible by an evolving balance between cloud-deployed computation and AI-enhanced security protocols. No longer can companies simply firewall legacy systems in-house, they have to project power abroad, the modern equivalent of sending battleships thousands of miles over the horizon. Gartner Group pegs the cost to corporate American at $85B, as more than half the Chief Technology Officers in a recent Needham & Co. say they will continue to spend more on security… and critically none will spend less. Several years ago I owned the top-ranked cybersecurity provider when the market was about a quarter its current size. Now I’m buying it back. The stock is not cheap, but it’s off the highs and this sector shows no signs of slowing.

Backdoor Bet on Biotech

High Quality Healthcare REIT

  • The top 10 US pharma companies spend nearly $100B annually on drug development according to Deloitte
  • Life sciences companies require specific property solutions like custom laboratories to facilitate R&D
  • Only one publicly traded REIT serves biotech/medtech tenants exclusively and its footprint is expanding

Picks & Shovels – Mining prospectors who drove California’s Gold Rush of 1849 required two essential implements in their quest to find gold: picks and shovels. While the vast majority who toiled tirelessly in those early mines left empty handed, enterprising suppliers of equipment earned an excellent living… with considerably less effort. Hence the origin of the term “picks and shovels” as a shorthand for businesses that supply tools, rather than the riskier ventures which depend upon them. I am long several biotech companies that offer the possibility of significant gain, and I equate these to mining bets. I would also like to smooth out the portfolio’s risk profile by adding a “pick and shovel” play, which is why I’m buying the largest REIT focused exclusively satisfying the unique real estate requirements of the life sciences sector. This company will never find the cure to cancer, but it will supply specialized laboratory space those who might… and generate stable cash flow for investors along the way.

Just One Word: Plastics

High Growth at a Low Price

  • Industrial valuations have fallen significantly on concern that US recession is all but inevitable
  • Differentiated manufacturers are raising prices and preserving margin despite record input costs
  • One specialized polymer producer expects growth to accelerate this year as demand remains robust

Plastics – There’s an immortal line from the 1967 movie The Graduate, and it has nothing to do with Mrs. Robinson. “Ben, just one word: Plastics. There’s a great future in plastics. Think about it.” That was fifty-five years ago, and plastics still give us a lot to think about. They form the blades of electricity-generating windmills, fuselage components of Boeing aircraft and body armor panels that protect our troops in combat. As investors wring their hands over the threat of rates and recession, the stocks of specialty chemical companies are getting pummeled. But have we gotten ahead of ourselves? I think so, and one uniquely positioned producer has caught my attention. It’s growing double-digits, raising prices and trading at its cheapest valuation in years. Plastics, think about it.
