Guru Investment Theses on Chicago Bridge & Iron Co NV

KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Comments on Chicago Bridge & Iron - Jul 30, 2014

The largest detractor during the quarter was Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI). The industrial engineering company declined over 21 percent and cost the portfolio 23 basis points in performance. CBI has been a long-term holding and despite the short-term challenges, the stock has made a strong contribution to the Fund’s performance over the years. However, the shares became volatile in June amid negative accounting reports related to their earlier acquisition of Shaw Group and we elected to sell the position on the news.

From John Keeley (Trades, Portfolio)’s KEELEY Small Cap Value Fund Second Quarter 2014 Commentary.

Richard Snow Increases His Stake in Chicago Bridge and Iron DCF calculator indicates the stock offers a margin of safety of 49%
Richard Snow (Trades, Portfolio) is the founder of Snow Capital. Snow looks for companies that are financially strong, but with stock prices that have been depressed due to temporary or intermediate term difficulties. Snow relies on extensive research to determine the probability of a solution, gain confidence in the company’s ability to survive the difficulty, and estimate the value of the stock once the difficulty has passed. Snow believes that when using this strategy, the downside is protected because the stock price is already depressed making it a reasonably safe strategy, yet capable of achieving significant returns.
