The company is a big player in the hydrogen market, which is expected to grow exponentially

Air Products and Chemicals Inc.'s (APD) recent selloff is a buying opportunity for long-term investors.

Shares of the atmospheric and specialty gases giant lost close to 10% of their value on Wednesday following a disappointing fourth-quarter earnings report. The selloff continued into Thursday with Air Products shares losing another 6% by mid-day.

Air Products reported GAAP earnings of $2.19 per share, trailing analysts' consensus estimate of $2.21. Revenue came in at $2.32 billion, exceeding expectations of $2.26 billion.

The company is remarkably resilient and its dividend growth history is long and impressive. Does this make up for the valuation?

Air Products & Chemicals Inc. (APD) has proven to be an excellent investment over many different periods of time.

Consider the stock's return versus that of the S&P 500 Index:

  • One-year return: 38.8% versus 14.1%.
  • Two-year return: 82% versus 18.4%.
  • Five-year return: 138% versus 73%.
  • 10-year return: 292% versus 198%.

The closest the market index has come to matching gains for that of Air Products is over the last year. Even as Covid-19 impacted results in the most recent quarter, Air Products has gained 28% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained just over 5%.

Guru stock highlight

We recently sold our remaining shares of Air Products (APD) (“APD”), concluding a highly successful activist investment. During our four-and-half-year investment, APD delivered a 104.7% total shareholder return. In comparison, the S&P 500 returned 69.9% over the same period.

Prior to our investment, APD had slipped from an industry leader to a laggard. While APD participated in a good industry and had produced positive shareholder returns over time, its performance was substantially inferior to its peers and its potential. APD’s margins of 15% trailed direct competitor Praxair’s 23% margins. Furthermore, APD’s operational inefficiency led to subpar growth.

APD (APD) continues to deliver strong results for its shareholders. On July 27, 2017, the company reported that Fiscal Q3 earnings per share grew 15%, driven by 8% revenue growth from increased volumes and 90 basis points of underlying margin expansion. Revenue growth was driven by organic growth and contributions from new plants coming on stream. Margin performance reflects continued operating efficiencies. Management has stated that they “have more work to do on productivity” and that “they continue to see productivity opportunities.” Equipment sales, which are more episodic, added to APD’s strong performance.

Air Products (APD) continues to deliver for its shareholders. Fiscal year Q2 results showed continued operating progress with underlying revenue growth of 7% and earnings per share growth of 4%. Revenue growth was driven by 7% volume and flat pricing. Excluding energy pass-through and mix factors, underlying EBITDA margins declined 40 basis points as productivity gains were offset by higher costs from maintenance outages of facilities in the U.S., delayed recovery of energy prices in Europe in the merchant market, and the ramp of lower-margin tonnage contracts in Asia.

Management stated that it was “disappointed that our underlying productivity did
