TOP PICK
Fantastic results a few days ago. Hugely improved profit margins. Healthy backlog that should grow, since its big markets are energy and nuclear, which are hot right now. Trades at less than 50% of book value. His firm is pushing for a strategic sale, looking for $20-30 per share. No dividend.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
BUY
They were a strong activist shareholder a few years ago and now hold a seat on the board. The transformation is nearly complete and recent earnings proved it is working, with a record order backlog and expanding margins. They expect solid earnings when reported in January. At some point it could be an acquisition target, where he thinks it would fetch 3x its current value. You have to be patient. Very little downside.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
HOLD
World leaders in nuclear valves. Has become more shareholder friendly, focusing on higher margins and more profitable areas. Record backlogs, so this year should be very strong. Nominated first non-family chairman ever, a positive. Significantly below tangible book value. His firm is pushing to unlock shareholder value. Support at these levels and should go higher.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
HOLD
Tremendously undervalued. Streamlining is coming along great. Improved corporate governance with non-family CEO. More selective about projects, with no more low margins. Share price moving up.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
HOLD
They announced a good last quarter with a record backlog of orders. This is badly undervalued. At some point, there'll be value creation. This business has turned around towards higher-margin product. Some end markets are coming back as nuclear plants need Velan's valves. One day, the company will be privatized, but you need to be patient with this.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
BUY
He likes the valuation as it is the cheapest stock on planet earth. He has been active as a shareholder on the turn around plan and is quite happy about how the plan is going now. The results two weeks ago were phenomenal. They need to buy back shares or put the company back up for sale now.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
BUY
They lead in wireless antennae for cell phones, satellites and sell globally. The pandemic has impacted sales. They had to pause a new plant in Vietnam. The 5G roll-out is back on track. They had to guide down and that pressured the stock. Also have a lot of debt. Overall, though, they will be fine with upside to come. They will recover in coming quarters.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jan 28/19, Down 37%) A global leader in the manufacturer of valves including nuclear valves. They are in the middle of a turn-around plan which he initiated. They started buying back their shares, which is usually accretive. We are seeing an improvement in the gross margins. We will see the full impact in twelve months. He thinks the company will be sold to a strategic buyer in the next two years.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
WATCH
He has not owned it based on the liquidity. The stock has not done much. If we see a re-acceleration in industrial components then this would be the place to watch.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jan 28/19, Down 37%) They are very much encouraged by the latest results. The company has started buying back shares. It is suffering from some tax loss selling. There is huge upside and very little downside. He just bought a lot more.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Dec 03/18, Down 21%) It is down on a failing of them to buy back their stock and support it. He became activist with several other shareholders and they have now made some tough decisions about closing money losing plants and dropping unprofitable business lines. The latest results were a significant improvement in gross margins. They announced they re-instituted the share buyback program. It is a screaming buy.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
BUY
They are probably the cheapest stock on the planet. Trades below liquidation levels. He does not understand why they are not buying back shares. They have been slow but are closing business areas that are losing money. Value is not being reflected in the market and management should do a better job of building shareholder value.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
DON'T BUY
Maker of large valves. Earnings estimates have been chopped. Payout ratio exceeding 180% -- the dividend does not look sustainable. It is not free cash flow positive. A struggle to turn the company around. Yield 1.36%
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
BUY
Cutting dividend was symbolic. Stock buyback stopped, he's not sure why. There's a turnaround taking place. Bit of a mountain to climb, as it's a global market with big players. They have a valuable asset. Closing unprofitable plants. Hopefully we'll start to see the fruit. Solid balance sheet. World leaders in many segments. Hang on, especially at this price, and he'd be buying more.
INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
SELL
They are struggling. In January, profit was down 79% even though sales were up 10%. Earnings estimates are expected to improve this year but still be a negative.
