TOP PICK
An infrastructure company and will benefit from the US infrastructure bill. (Analysts’ price target is $160.38)
contractors
DON'T BUY
They help build the infrastructure, but then they leave. He prefers to own the companies that build the assets with JEC, but then collect the cashflows from the infrastructure project over the next 20-40 years. If he were going to choose one, it would be WSP, a higher quality player than JEC.
contractors
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Feb 18/21, Up 16%) The recent US infrastructure bill plays right into their business. Their backlog extends into 2023 and order books will be quite full. They're also into big data after recently buying a data analytics company; this tech will help manage traffic flow into urban areas.
contractors
TOP PICK
One of the largest in the States. Infrastructure bill is almost 100% guaranteed to be enacted, so we're going to see a lot of construction over many years. Trades at 19x earnings, not excessive. Recent acquisition puts their finger in the 5G pie. Well positioned to do well in the current environment. Yield is 0.60%. (Analysts’ price target is $160.86)
contractors
BUY
This will benefit if/when a US infrastructure plan really happens. Has a great balance sheet and is growing nicely, trading below 20x earnings. They recently bought a 5G infrastructure company, which is another plus.
contractors
TOP PICK
A new position for him. Small cap. 19x earnings, good balance sheet. Debt to total capital is 22%, relatively low. Recent acquisition gives them entry into 5G. Will benefit from infrastructure build. Backlog is about 2x annual sales. Yield is 0.76%. (Analysts’ price target is $127.50)
contractors
WEAK BUY
He's never liked companies involved in construction--it's a hard business. However, Jacobs is tops in their industry.
contractors
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Oct 03/19, Down 2%) Still decent, though hit by bad earnings recently. There could be a giant US infrastructure build next year by Washington. He's concerned that this is underperforming the market and is trading below its 200-day moving average.
contractors
TOP PICK
Largest engineering company in the S&P 500. Public construction spending is trending up. October - January is optimal holding period. Coming back down to major moving averages, which gives a good risk/reward entry point. (Analysts’ price target is $93.93)
contractors
DON'T BUY

This is a well-run company, but it is not the time to invest in engineering companies. They made a recent acquisition to make themselves one of the largest in the sector and could benefit from the Trump Administration Infrastructure initiative, but is skeptical that interest rates may cause issues.

contractors
HOLD
There are 4 major North American companies that he likes and owns in the infrastructure space. This is one of them along with Fluor (FLR-N), SNC-Lavalin (SNC-T) and Stantec (STN-T). The latter two are the cheapest and would be the ones he would add if you wanted to.
contractors
DON'T BUY
All the engineering companies have been doing fairly well in the last while. This one has good exposure. They've been working in oil sands quite a bit. Valuation looks like it's stretched. For a Canadian play on this that's trading a little bit cheaper, SNC-Lavalin (SNC-T) might be one, but even its evaluation looks stretched.
