Why Some Smart Investors Scooped Up SolarWinds (SWI) Shares

Shares of SolarWinds (SWI, $39.17)—a provider of infrastructure solutions used
for network and systems management—have rebounded off the 52-week low of
$31.94 from November.

Just after the open today, the stock tested its 200-day moving average at $40.09,
hitting a high of $40.42.

Last year, SolarWinds suffered through execution issues and saw its share price
decline 27%. The stock remains well below the 52-week high of $61.52.

In Q3, some big, tech-focused money managers took advantage of the pullback in
SolarWinds to initiate or build positions, with the #1 buyer, Stephen Mandel’s Lone
Pine Capital ($22.9 billion in long equity assets/24% tech weighting), opening a
position of 5.7 million shares to become the #3 holder.

For more on the SolarWinds story (the company started to show signs of stability in
the latest quarter) and the other savvy investors who have been adding shares,
