ClearBridge Small Cap Strategy made the following comment about SMART Global Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SGH) in its Q2 2023 investor letter:

“Investor enthusiasm for AI-related companies and strong idiosyncratic catalysts helped drive our outperformance in the IT sector. Our top individual performer was SMART Global Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:SGH), which designs and manufactures specialty solutions for the high performance computing, memory and LED markets. The stock caught the AI tailwind and got an added kicker from news it will sell the majority of its Brazil-based memory business to focus on higher-value products in computing and specialty memory. We believe the company is poised to deliver higher growth and better incremental margins than the market anticipates.”
