  • Why GM Is A Buy

    It has been a few years since General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) resurected from the ashes of its former incarnations bankruptcy. It is still the leading automaker in the States and slowly U.S. taxpayers are forgiving the company its previous mistakes. In October 2010 the automaker integrated AmeriCredit to continue to offer credit to customers. Currently, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne is pursuing GM to merge with the Italian automaker. Sergio Marchionne has a reputation as a briliant manager who is highly skilled at creating shareholder value. His arguments are laid out in a presentation called Confessions of a Capital Junkie. His main point is that automakers are achieving RoIC below their average cost of capital. Long term that is a huge problem, and he thinks the solution lies in a few mega companies. By his estimates a combination of Fiat with another major automaker would result in between $2.8 billion to $5 billion in benefits per year. Fiat and GM’s combined Ebitda is around $19 billion, so that is signficant. GM CEO Mary Barra, meanwhile has indicated to be uninterested.

  • David Einhorn Doubles Stake in Chicago Bridge & Iron

    Chicago Bridge and Iron (NYSE:CBI) stock jumped 8% in Friday’s trading after Bloomberg reported that Anadarko Petroleum Corp (APC) is poised to select a construction team led by Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. as its main contractor for a potential $15 billion Mozambique liquefied natural gas project. Chicago Bridge & Iron’s current backlog is ~$30 bn and this win may help it significantly increase its backlog and revenue visibility in the near term. Further, Anadarko proceeding with this project will also reassure investors who are worried about the fate of energy mega-projects amid the oil market downturn.


    Chicago Bridge and Iron is trading at 9.68 time current year earnings and analysts are expecting its top and bottomline to decline slightly over the next year. A win of the size of Mozambique LNG project may help the company grow its revenue next year, instead of slight decline which analysts are modeling. So, there is a good chance of the next year numbers getting revised upwards when the deal is formally announced.

  • Should you follow these analysts and buy Chicago Bridge and Iron

    Recent correction in oil prices have taken a toll on Chicago Bridge & Iron Company's (NYSE:CBI) share prices and the stock has corrected ~50% from 2014 highs. However, according to many analysts, this correction provides a good opportunity to buy the stock. In his recent report, Jefferies analyst Luke Folta reiterated his buy opinion on the company. He considers the stock a bargain at current levels and has a price target of $75 on the stock. He believes divesture of assets and restructuring could generate more that $100 million in cash flow for the company in 2015 and 2016 which could be used towards stock buy backs.


    Another analyst, John B. Rogers of D.A. Davidson, is also bullish on the stock and has a $70 price target. He believes that with sustained earnings and cash flow, let alone growth, the stock can appreciate substaintially from the current level. He is optimistic on the company's backlog growth due to “LNG export facilities, new gas fired power plants, and other energy/downstream infrastructure that could be awarded in 2015.”
