It started with a very long decline but it’s found a bottom at $13.50. Volume is pretty good and it looks to be catching up to the markets. It could go up to around $20. If it goes below $19, he would sell.

Years ago, it was well-managed and a great growth stock. They made purchase after purchase. But then, the retail bankruptcies started. NWL took on a lot of debt to acquire one company, Jardin. Then, activist shareholders stepped in. They sold off a lot of business, including their dominant skiwear business. Rubbermaid remains the company's core, which is good. He's long this in the short term. $40 is the target in two years.

Catching a falling knife as they resposition, selling a few businesses and using some proceeds to buyback stock and de-lever. There's little growth in their existing businesses and they're facing tariffs from products they buy from China. A lot of uncertainy in the coming year. Not confident in their earnings numbers.

The stock is getting no love. Not the best-run company. That said, it's begun restructuring (i.e. may sell a division, pay down debt, etc.) so it's a good time to step in. Also cheap at only 9x forward earnings. Pays a 4.3% dividend yield. Upside is ahead.

From 2012-17 they did a great job of growing their earnings. Now, they're having difficulty. Earnings will be down this and next year. Also, activist shareholders are involved to shake up the business. Turnaround situations are tough. The next 9 months will be strong for equities, so if you own it, move on and take your lumps and buy something else. This turnaround will take a long while.

Their press release stated the hurricane had hit the chemical business in Houston, and was going to push up raw materials pricing. Back to school sales was very disappointing, and the stock took another drop. The company is well-managed. They made a large acquisition. He is still a believer in the company and that we will see a recovery in the next couple of years. It could be a double from here if everything goes well.
