  • How Is This Company Finally Turning Things Around?

    By Mike Thiessen - July 10, 2013 | Tickers: ACM, TRR, URS

    Market-watchers and investors have widely divergent opinions about the emerging "green economy." Many remain skeptical of eco-friendly start-ups' business models and prefer to invest in larger, more established firms that innovate incrementally. Others believe that smaller firms are far more likely to discover and harness the sorts of disruptive, paradigm-shifting technologies that create value for investors and open up new markets for exploitation. Those who fall into the latter camp more »

  • Will We Finally Rebuild America's Aging Infrastructure?

    By Reuben Brewer - June 3, 2013 | Tickers: ACM, CBI, FLR

    A bridge in Washington collapsed recently, once again exposing the state of this nation's aging infrastructure. Replacing dangerous spans such as this one is complex and difficult. But AECOM Technology (NYSE: ACM), Chicago Bridge & Iron (NYSE: CBI), and Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) are three companies that can handle big infrastructure jobs.

    Too Many Failures

    When it comes to a bridge, a single collapse is one too many. Luckily, the more »

  • The coming infrastructure boom

    By Todd Peterson - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: ACM, JEC, STRL, TPC, URS, VMC

    If there is a common thread in the history of America’s growth to global economic dominance in the 20th century, it is the story of our collective investment in a public infrastructure. This era saw massive investment in public roads, public water and wastewater systems, urban public transit systems, aviation, ports, energy, and the schools to develop and maintain a skilled labor force. One might observe that this more »

  • The State of the Union and Infrastructure Stocks: Time to Make a Move

    By Nate Wooley - February 12, 2013 | Tickers: ACM, JEC, KBR, SHAW.DL, URS

    If, as is being reported, President Obama makes the main focus of his State of the Union speech not the hot button, front of the discussion topics of debt, immigration and guns but instead the economy and infrastructure renewal in the United States, it will be a not-so-quiet statement that he's taking his second term seriously. More seriously than many of his supporters and detractors, frankly.

  • Cashing in on the World Cup and Olympics in Brazil

    By Garrick Sheldon - February 8, 2013 | Tickers: ACM, BUD, BRXX, CAT

    We’ve all heard the disappointing news coming from team BRIC: Brazil’s boom has slowed to a trickle with GDP growth in 2012 predicted to be just 1%. The lofty 3.1% figure previously touted by the Brazilian Central Bank turned out to be achievable, but only through some, err, inventive accounting. Brazil’s growth prospects remain uncertain, but one thing is for sure: the upcoming World Cup and more »

  • An Interesting Play on Rio Olympics: Aecom

    By George Bridges - January 25, 2013 | Tickers: ACM

    I became interested in the markets after an interesting conversation with a friend of mine who is a financial advisor.  Having never thought about profiting in the stock market before, I had one investment idea that has led me to follow the markets daily.  This unique investment idea came from an interesting intersection between my interests: sports, design, and traveling to other countries. I have long thought Brazil was a more »

  • Technical Services Companies to Watch in 2013

    By Shweta Dubey - January 2, 2013 | Tickers: ACM, KBR, URS

    The Engineering and Construction (E&C) market, which has been running at a slow pace in recent years, is showing recovery signs. Selected sector opportunities have emerged as a significant growth factor for E&C companies over the near term, in the form of new bookings with revenue growth to follow. Lower spending in the past has created a potential investment deficit that now opens new roads of long term more »

  • Analyzing David Einhorn’s New Buys

    By Gayatri Sharma - December 18, 2012 | Tickers: ACM, BWC, YHOO

    David Einhorn is one of the smartest hedge fund managers of current times. He is well known for his bearish presentation on Green Mountain Coffee Roaster at Value Investing Conference last year. He did similar damage to Chipotle Mexican Grill’s stock this year. With such big hits to his name, I find useful to track his latest buy sell activities for making investment decisions. In this article, I will more »

  • This Business Support Provider Looks Seriously Undervalued

    By Daniel James - October 18, 2012 | Tickers: ABM, ACN, ACM

    Last week I wrote about Accenture, a tech consultancy that has been doing rather well over the last few years. After researching this article, I stumbled upon one of their competitors, which actually looks like an even more attractive bet at the moment. Aecom Technology (NYSE: ACM) is a provider of technical and management support services for governments and commercial clients worldwide. Aside from steadily growing earnings over the last more »

  • China's Move Towards Oil Independence and Three Stocks to Consider

    By Robert Zimmerman - October 10, 2012 | Tickers: ACM, BP, CEO, HUSKF.PK, NXY

    It’s no secret China imports oil, 4.35 million barrels a day to be exact.  And that’s down from a year ago.  It’s also no secret China would rather not be in this situation.  Over the years, The People’s Republic has been active in oil exploration and overseas acquisitions.  So far, production has not come close to matching consumption

    “Net imports” are keeping oil prices high more »

  • Chinese Bridges are Falling Down, Falling Down

    By Robert Zimmerman - October 3, 2012 | Tickers: ACM, CBI, SHAW.DL, URS

    And the Chinese people are none too happy about it.

    According to the official Xinhua news agency, the collapse of the Yangmingtan Bridge in late August 2012 is the sixth major bridge to collapse in the People's Republic of China since July 2011.  Even more bridges have crashed since 2007.  The government's official response is that overloaded trucks are to blame.  Well, the Chinese are not stupid and more »
