  • Should You Follow David Tepper and Buy These E&C Companies

    By Ash Sharma - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, KBR

    I often use 13F filings by reputed money managers as a starting point to screen potential investment opportunities. Although not foolproof, this approach gives a good starting point to find out the companies which deserves a deeper look from investment perspective. David Tepper is one of my favorite money mangers and I track his positions closely. His recent filing indicate that he is becoming very bullish on Engineering and Construction more »

  • The Best Risk/Reward in Engineering

    By Matthew Frankel - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: FLR, FWLT, JEC

    With the improving economy, both in the United States and in most of the emerging markets worldwide, engineering firms should be very well positioned to profit. With an expected increase in infrastructure spending as well as residential and commercial construction, there should be no shortage of money to be made in the coming years.

    By Vladimir Zernov - August 9, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, FLR, SLW

    Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) has announced a massive impairment in its second quarter earnings report. This came as no surprise. The drop in gold prices has caused the company to write down $8.7 billion from its balance sheet. On the other hand, Barrick Gold reported adjusted earnings of $0.66 per share. The company made money from its operations in the quarter, despite the low gold price environment. Its more »

  • Profit From Nuclear Energy With These Three Nuclear Experts

    By Rupert Hargreaves - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: CCJ, FLR, URS

    Since the Fukushima accident, the outlook for nuclear power has been cloudy. Japan began an extended shutdown of 48 reactors and Germany committed to move away from nuclear, to solar and wind power by the beginning of the next decade. This has given the nuclear industry a grim outlook.

    However, according to data from the World Nuclear Fuel Cycle conference held in Singapore back in April, the nuclear industry outlook more »

    By Mark Holder - July 1, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, KBR

    According to a Chicago Bridge & Iron (NYSE: CBI) presentation, the LNG project capital expenditures over the next two years will reach over $70 billion. The spending will reach a plateau in 2015 at over $45 billion and max out around $50 billion in 2017. Not bad for a market that topped out around $30 billion in 2012 and plunged this year.

    Probably not surprising, but a main beneficiary will be more »

  • This Stock Can Boost Your Portfolio's Infrastructure

    By Marshall Hargrave - June 30, 2013 | Tickers: FLR, JEC, URS

    One of the great infrastructure plays now appears to be on sale. Fluor's (NYSE: FLR) stock has been pushed down over 6.5% during the past week, and despite the rebound in the U.S. economy, Fluor is still grossly under-performing the S&P 500.

    Things should change going forward. In what appears to be a robustly competitive engineering and construction market, Fluor is the market leader, with nearly more »

  • This Stock Is Set To Skyrocket

    By Piyush Arora - June 25, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, KBR

    Editor's Note: The initial article stated Shaw was based in Canada. That was incorrect, this version has been corrected.

    In a bid to arrest its widening trade deficit and support natural gas pricing, the United States Department of Energy (DOE) recently relaxed its norms for LNG exports. It has authorized Freeport's LNG terminal to export up to 1.4 bcf of natural gas/day for the next 20 more »

  • 3 Stocks to Buy in the Shale Boom

    By Zain Abbas - June 25, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, KBR

     The shale-gas revolution has brought a new life in many sectors that were otherwise neglected by investors. Energy infrastructure (more commonly known as engineering and construction, or E&C) companies represent one such group. Given the abundant supply of natural gas, economists have suggested the government export some of it, which will not only bring foreign remittances but also help to maintain a balance between supply and demand of natural more »

    By Vladimir Zernov - June 4, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, FLR, SLW

    Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX) has stated the obvious: Pascua-Lama project would be delayed beyond 2014. The project costs would exceed the previous $8 billion - $8.5 billion estimate. Let’s consider if the news changes the outlook for Barrick’s stock.

    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 »

    By Vladimir Zernov - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: ABX, FLR, SLW

    Chile’s environmental regulator has recently imposed a $16 million fine on Barrick Gold (NYSE: ABX). It has also stopped construction on the Pascua-Lama project due to serious environmental violations. This project has been a source of headache for Barrick for some time. It seems it does not get better. Or does it?

    What’s the problem?

  • Stocks Set to Benefit From LNG Exports

    By Jacob Wolinsky - May 28, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, TGP

    The Energy Department has issued a second permit to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the United States. The license, awarded to Freeport LNG Expansion and FLNG Liquefaction, will result in overseas shipping of 1.4 billion cubic feet of gas every day from a terminal on the Texas Gulf Coast.

  • Big, Low-Risk Profits From Natural Gas In An Unexpected Place

    By Ken McGaha - May 20, 2013 | Tickers: DD, FLR, KBR, DOW

    Massive new supplies of natural gas discovered in the U.S. have caused the domestic price to fall as much as 70% below the price paid in other countries. While these low prices have not been favorable for the operating results of the businesses selling natural gas, it is creating a windfall for businesses that are big consumers of it: But the big profits for investors will come from the more »

  • Where's the Floor for Fluor?

    By Marshall Hargrave - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, URS

    Fluor (NYSE: FLR) has tumbled nearly 12% over the past week. Even over the past year, Flour is down 9.14% while the S&P 500 is up 10.85%.

    With Flour grossly underperforming the broader market, what's the near-term catalyst to push the stock higher? One of the big tailwinds should be bolstering global growth. The IMF expects global GDP to grow 3.3% for 2013 against 3 more »
