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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A great cyclical and the first to add GPS to track their equipment. This created a good partnership with contractors. However, he feels we are near the end of the cycle, so is not excited to own it. It is a great name, but it is not the right time.

Volatile and leveraged. Also very acquisitive, which maybe why it's under pressure. But now is an opportunity to buy this. He likes URI. Good fundamentals and pricing is firm.

It should be a great stage in the cycle for them. They rent out large building machinery. The recent move down is digesting some recent purchases. Take a position here, but they carry a lot of debt too. Edge in a bit.

This is a play on the US economy. Companies do not like to buy heavy equipment, they like to rent it as it is much more efficient. When the economy gets better, the capacity tightens up and prices go up. They are now seeing rising prices for their rentals for the first time in a few years. When that begins, it tends to go on for a long time. It’s a cyclical business, but if we think companies are much more optimistic than they were 18 months ago, then they are going to start to build and are going to use equipment from this company. The company generates a lot of cash. (Analysts' price target is $194.87.)
