Baron Asset Fund Comments on A.O. Smith Corp Guru stock highlight
Headquartered in Milwaukee, where it was founded over 140 years ago, A.O. Smith Corporation (NYSE:AOS) is a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial water heaters, boilers, and water treatment products. The company derives about 60% of its sales from water heaters in North America. This is an attractive market, with only three major players that have demonstrated a history of rational pricing policies. A.O. Smith is the largest participant with more than a 40% share in residential heaters and a 55% share in commercial heaters. Few homeowners or businesses consider hot water to be a discretionary item; generally a heater is replaced as soon as it breaks, and price is often a secondary consideration. As a result, the bulk of the company’s heater sales are comprised of steady replacement revenue (85% to 90% of residential sales). Additional growth comes from new housing starts, commercial construction, and customers’ desire for new products with increased energy efficiency. Read more...
