Guru Investment Theses on MRC Global Inc

Weitz Funds Comments on MRC Global - Apr 25, 2016

MRC Global (NYSE:MRC) - Conditions in the oil patch have continued to worsen over the past six months, with several oil field service executives describing the downturn as the worst they have seen in over 30 years. Despite a dour forecast for each of MRC’s end markets during 2016, the company’s stock rallied in late February on news that an activist investor had taken significant positions in MRC and competitor Now, Inc. (with hopes of convincing the two companies to merge). Additional diligence led us to believe that the combination was unlikely, so we elected to close our position at a modest discount to our lower business value estimate.

Weitz Funds Comments on MRC Global - Nov 16, 2015

MRC Global (NYSE:MRC) is a distributor of pipes, valves, fittings and related products to the upstream, midstream and downstream energy industries. A glut of global oil supply, growing demand uncertainty and a more discerning credit market have resulted in continued declines in oil field activity levels and fears of delays in larger pipeline and petrochemical projects. In August, MRC management sounded a more cautious tone about the possibility of a pickup in demand during 2016. Despite a challenging near-term outlook, we believe MRC’s competitive position in the industry continues to improve and that its earnings and cash flows will be significantly higher when activity levels return to more normal levels.
