  • 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 »

  • How to Profit From Surging LNG Project CapEx

    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.

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

    The recently held Offshore Technology Conference in Houston has brought along some important takeaways for investors in engineering and construction (E&C) companies. In my earlier posts, I have been emphasizing how the E&C sector has been a main beneficiary of the shale gas boom, which promises to bring a multi-billion dollar investment cycle in this industry.

    By Zain Abbas - April 10, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, KBR

    Engineering & Construction (E&C) companies have been a bright spot in the industrial space, especially after the shale gas boom opened up multi-billion dollar investment opportunities in the infrastructure arena. In fact, Goldman Sachs believes that energy infrastructure stocks are expected to attract $57-65 billion in five projects, namely gas processing, fractionation, petrochemicals, LNG exports and gas power.

  • 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.

  • These Companies Could Benefit from Infrastructure Priorities

    The world has a lot of construction needs at the moment. Beyond housing construction, governments, and large corporations around the world are backed up on infrastructure development. According to the McKinsey Global Institute nations around the world are going to need $57 trillion worth of infrastructure construction by 2030 to keep pace with global GDP growth.

    That is a lot of construction.

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.

    By Brendan O'Boyle - December 31, 2012 | Tickers: JEC, KBR, SHAW.DL | Editor's Choice

    Few professionals have brighter hopes in the near future than architects.  The Architecture Billings Index recently rose for the fourth consecutive month to a new post-recession high.  It appears that architecture is back after languishing for years during the Great Recession.  It is expected that a large amount of pent-up demand exists for architectural services and one company that should benefit is Jacobs Engineering Group (NYSE: JEC).

  • Great Companies That Top Investors Are Buying

    By Federico Zaldua - November 7, 2012 | Tickers: GDI, GPN, JIVE, KBR

    I think investors should consider companies with improving fundamentals and attractive valuations. In the article I will detail several stocks with improving fundamentals that top institutions were adding to their portfolios. As I explained in a related blog post in Warren Trades, it is important to track hedge fund holdings because institutions have more resources than an individual investor to analyze fundamentals of any company.

  • Defense Companies Under Fire

    By Tony Daltorio - June 25, 2012 | Tickers: KBR, LMT, MANT, NOC

    As many investors in the sector already know, military spending cutbacks loom over the defense industry. Pentagon spending going forward may be slashed by up to $500 billion. That is why the largest defense contractors including Lockheed Martin, Boeing, General Dynamics and Raytheon spent a combined $33.4 million on lobbying in the nation's capital last year, hoping to pare the cuts. And defense company spending on Washington lobbying more »

    There they go again. Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) blew away all expectations in its earnings release on April 24th. Mr. Roget doesn’t have enough superlative adjectives in his thesaurus to adequately describe the powerhouse that Apple is.
