Guru Investment Theses on SunCoke Energy Inc

Baron Funds Comments on SunCoke Energy Partners - Jun 10, 2013

SunCoke Energy Partners, LP (SXC) is a neat special situation. The company is a leading manufacturer of metallurgical coke, a key ingredient sold to the steel industry. Though it serves cyclical end markets, SunCoke's business is annuity-like and stable. It's interesting to us because SunCoke was a spinout (so not well known) which itself just created an MLP to hold certain assets, so it's kind of a special situation squared. We believe that when it is better understood the stock should trade much higher since its capital structure should garner a higher multiple and it will benefit from enhanced growth opportunities.
