In This Issue:

One Year Ago in IAS: Synnex

In the April 2011 issue of the Investor Advisory Service we recommended SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX), a distributor of electronics. This large company had revenues in 2010 of $8.6 billion and had grown earnings per share at an annualized rate of 19.4% since 2002. How have the company and its stock performed in the year since it was recommended?

Reflecting on what we said in our Investment Comments a year ago, we noted in April 2011 that inflation was starting to demonstrate a risk to the economy. The producer price index (PPI) had printed a 5.8% year-over-year increase. Consumer prices, as measured by the CPI, still looked relatively steady. However, the PPI increase was heavily weighted toward input goods, as distinct from finished goods, suggesting that price increases were marshaling “upstream” in the supply chain. The increases would likely flow downstream to the retail checkout aisle in due time. We warned investors that lower profit margins would provide some of the supply chain’s necessary relief.
