Guru Investment Theses on Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Inc

FPA Capital Comments on Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises - Jul 28, 2017

Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises (NYSE:BW) also performed well in the quarter. We discussed BW in our first quarter letter and pointed out that management made a poor strategic decision in its fast-growing renewables business, and that the stock was hit hard during that quarter for that mistake. Subsequent to publishing our first-quarter letter, BW hosted a quarterly earnings conference call and provided positive news on the company’s progress in fixing its problems. The near-term stock price performance now largely rests on the company’s ability to continue fixing the renewables problems and preventing further cost overruns in that division.

During the second quarter, we added three new stocks to the portfolio and eliminated three other companies. The three new stocks are in three different industries: one is an airline, another is a financial services company, and the other is a retailer. Two of the new stocks are what we refer to as ‘old friends’ because the Fund has invested in the companies before.

FPA Capital Comments on Babcock & Wilcox - Jan 30, 2017

We added a new healthcare name to the portfolio in the quarter, but it is too small of a weighting to discuss at this time. We slightly increased the Fund’s Babcock & Wilcox (NYSE:BW) holding as the stock declined a bit more than 6% in the quarter. Thus, we continue to actively manage the Fund by trimming stocks that rise toward their intrinsic value and adding to positions when stock values provide a nice margin of safety and trade at a discount to their fair value.
