Guru Investment Theses on Clean Harbors Inc

Meridian Funds Comments on Clean Harbors Inc. - Mar 07, 2016

Clean Harbors, Inc. (NYSE:CLH) is a provider of environmental, energy, and industrial services, including hazardous waste disposal for companies. The rapid deterioration of oil prices during the period caused Clean Harbors’ re-refining business to suffer. However, we believe the company’s hazardous waste disposal business is its greatest asset. It is extremely difficult for companies to meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements and to obtain permitting for new hazardous waste incinerators, giving Clean Harbors a competitive advantage. This business has benefitted from a steady increase in the types of waste classified by the EPA as hazardous. Given the industry’s limited capacity and Clean Harbors’ dominant position in this space, the company has been able to consistently raise prices. We believe investors are too focused on the short-term movement of crude oil prices and not focused enough on the long-term growth potential of this company. We consequently increased our position in the stock.

Meridian Funds Comments on Clean Harbors Inc. - Mar 08, 2016

Clean Harbors, Inc. (NYSE:CLH) provides a variety of environmental remediation and industrial waste management services. The business has high regulatory barriers to entry and roughly three fourths of revenues are recurring in nature. Clean Harbors came across our contrarian screens due to tough comparisons in its comparatively volatile event-driven business and a poorly timed oil recycling acquisition. While our investment thesis largely played out as these businesses have improved, the company has suffered due to significant declines in its oil and gas related businesses. We continue to hold Clean Harbors’ shares due to the defensive nature of its core business and an attractive valuation that ascribes little value to the most energy exposed areas. We expect earnings growth to resume late in 2016 and see this as a potential catalyst for the stock.
