TOP PICK
The U.S. trillion-dollar infrastructure bill will pass and benefit URI. He's done very well with this. He predicts earnings of $25/share this quarter. The stock is not expensive, yet offers a lot of growth. (Analysts’ price target is $384.07)
Financial Services
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Aug 27/20, Up 91%) Earning about $21.50 EPS this year, $25 predicted next year. He expects low teens percentage earnings increases for the next 5 years. Great value at 15x earnings with great growth prospects. Infrastructure bill is in their bailiwick.
Financial Services
RISKY BUY

vs. Caterpillar They're both cyclicals. He owns only URI. CAT stock is a little ahead of itself at 25-30x this year's earnings. URI is trading at a lower level. URI will still do well if a US infrastructure bill will be passed. Yes, it's lumpy and volatile, so strategically limit your exposure to this in your portfolio. Diversify away from higher-beta, riskier stocks.

TOP PICK
Why buy when you can rent, or buy second-hand? URI is the world's biggest heavy-equipment rental company, and business is good. In 2020, the year of the lockdown, the company spent US$961 million in buying equipment. This year, it will more than double that number. Last week, the company beat its Q1 earnings and bumped up its 2021 forecast. EPS came in at $3.45 vs. the street's $3.10. Total revenues beat by 2.4%, but were down 3.2% year-over-year. Used equipment sales topped US$267 million compared to US$208 million a year ago. The balance sheet is sound at US$3.745 billion of total liquidity, which marks a US$672 million increase YOY. Free cash flow jumped 19.6% to US$725 million. Guidance rose as much as US$9.025 billion in total 2021 revenue to a range of US$9.05-9.45 billion. No, URI doesn't offer a dividend, but it is paying down debt and boasts good cash flow. The stock has moved up 38% this year, but will likely continue to climb with the entire infrastructure complex.
Financial Services
BUY
Largest rental of heavy equipment. Has moved dramatically. Continues to like it. Good value, at 10x earnings. Great cash flow. Paying off debt. With Biden, we might get an infrastructure bill with teeth, and that would benefit URI.
Financial Services
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Sep 18/19, Up 43%) Low multiple. Strong free cash flow, around 12%. The US needs to spend money on its infrastructure. We may hear about it during the election, and this would benefit the company directly.
Financial Services
TOP PICK
Economically sensitive, so it's volatile. Largest construction rental company in the US. Lots of opportunity, as only 50% of construction equipment is leased. Not expensive. Well positioned, fundamentally strong. Good time to buy. No dividend. (Analysts’ price target is $180.00)
Financial Services
HOLD
Lots or runway here. Low multiple, great cash flow. Will benefit from much needed infrastructure spending in the US.
Financial Services
BUY
They rent equipment to large companies. If the issue of virus transmission in this equipment arose, he's confident URI would take safety steps, like sanitizing their machines regularly. It's a very good company. Infrastructure will rise as a priority for governments who will want to get people back to work, so this is a benefit for URI. They have great free cash flow, another plus.
Financial Services
BUY
How do you know when to buy a falling stock? It's tricky, but he'd rather buy it on the way up than down. He wants some certainty. After a stock bottoms and starts to move up, he buys. He likes this stock. Great cash flow and trades under 10x earnings. URI has a good future. Outside North America, countries prefer renting, not buying capital equipment. This bodes well for URI.
Financial Services
BUY
They have a lot of runway ahead with pricing power. In North America, 53% of equipment is rented; Japan and Europe that's 80%. URI is still cheap. He targets $21/share this year.
Financial Services
HOLD
Volatile recently. Small caps tend to have higher betas. Last night's report was very strong. But not a good story over time. Investors haven't built up the confidence to bid it up. He believes in it over time. Paying off debt. Industry has pricing power. Infrastructure in US desperately needs repair. But don't concentrate your portfolio in this one, or companies like this.
Financial Services
TOP PICK
It's had a rough ride and should be worth a lot more. They are the biggest renters of heavy construction equiopment. free cash flow and have priving power. Revenues were up 14% year over year. Be patient and this will pay off. (Analysts’ price target is $161.94)
Financial Services
DON'T BUY
It's good to own when there's capex spending, which is why URI has been under pressure for the past year. URI also has a lot of debt. Can they service that debt? He's on the sidelines for now. Wait for it to bottom.
Financial Services
DON'T BUY
Doesn't own the stock, but rather its high-yield bond, and they're in bonds because they carry a lot of debt. Debt is 60% of enterprise value, and they pay no dividend, but managers have done well growing through acquisition. URI is tied to US construction which has been strong. They keep increasing debt in order to grow. It's too risky. They need to pay down debt and pay a dividend at some point.
