Jeremy Deal presented his in-depth investment thesis on Cyrusone (NASDAQ: CONE) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2014.

Cyrusone: Highest quality, least leveraged data center REIT growing earnings 20%+ annually. Wide moat will protect low-20s unleveraged IRR on stabilized data center portfolio. Key sources of moat: 1) scale (allows ability to maintain unoccupied space for customer growth at low costs) and 2) reputation (creates high barrier to entry, especially for new competitors). Undeveloped capacity to grow footprint by 400% organically. Attractive valuation caused by perceived control shareholder sell overhang and limited public float. 33% upside due to special situation despite recent run up, 60-80% upside over 18 months.
