Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research

VMC pays a decent yield of 0.8%, and analysts expect earnings and sales to grow nicely in the coming years. It has reasonable debt levels, good profit margins, a somewhat high valuation (31.3X forward P/E), but it generates good free cash flows and has been reducing some of its debt recently. Growth rates are good, and we think as part of a long-term hold, it is a solid name, although it has seen a strong run recently and we might expect a slight pullback.

BUY
They make materials for building roads, so obviously it benefits from the infrastructure bill that was just signed. It's up 29% year to date, so he was worried that the bill was already baked into the stock. However, retail investors didn't know this and they bought it up today. Trading around 35-40x earnings.

WAIT
It does well during housing booms. It's slipped recently and could continue to, so maybe wait a week before buying.

She likes materials as a sector because they have one of the highest earnings projections for next year and this company has a lot of highway projects where the government is spending a lot of money and it could go two or three years out. (Analysts’ target: $141.50).

BUY

A very well run company with quarries around San Antonio. When prices fell, they used technology to reduce production. They will do exceptionally well.
