Guru Investment Theses on Northwest Pipe Co

Royce Funds Comments on Northwest Pipe - Mar 15, 2016

Northwest Pipe (NASDAQ:NWPX) makes large-diameter, high-pressure steel pipe products used for water transmission. It also moved into the oilfield country tubular goods market close to the time energy prices began to plummet, which hurt growth and revenues. It’s moving out of that business and concentrating on what we think it does best, making us confident in its recovery potential.
