Bargain Hunting

Auto Sector Opportunity

  • Third quarter GDP revised upwards to a two-year high of 5% as strong employment buoys record spending
  • Auto sector valuations remain depressed on lingering recession fears and now-irrelevant UAW disruptions
  • Reliable Growth-Meets-Value stock screen uncovers a top electronics supplier trading near valuation low

Stock Picking – Morningstar named David Herro, of Harris Associates its Fund Manager of the Decade for his consistent ability to identify high-growth companies at low-priced valuations… and he shared his formula with me. Some years ago, we were on a panel at Bloomberg Television and during a commercial break I asked whether he had a favorite stock screen. He said “absolutely” and then outlined three specific criteria: Price to Cash Flow less than 10x; Debt to Cash Flow less than 2x; 3-yr average ROE of at least 13%. I have incorporated David’s insight into my own process, and I periodically run his screen to see what percolates, recently uncovering this week’s new pick. It’s a double-digit growth story in the auto sector with a single-digit valuation. As the UAW strike disappears in the rearview mirror, I see open road ahead.

Revolutionizing Supply Chains

Hands-On Goes Hands-Off

  • The market for contract logistics is estimated at $450B annually and expected to rise 45% by 2027
  • Only one-third of logistics services are outsourced despite generating operating leverage for customers
  • Rising e-commerce volumes and increasingly asset-light business models favor logistics outsourcing

Sweet Spot – My mentor of many years asked the same question to every person he interviewed: How do you make the most amount of money on Wall Street? The answer he wanted to hear, and the one that got the job, was: Find a theme and leverage it. Three mega-themes are converging right now, and one particular industry stands to benefit the most. The themes are Automation, e-Commerce and Outsourcing. The industry is contract logistics, which provides all the behind-the-scenes shipping, stocking, restocking and ordering for companies that would rather focus on making stuff than managing stuff. This is a symbiotic relationship. Companies free-up capital and resources by shedding assets and outsourcing, which drives operating leverage and higher ROE. GXO introduces efficiency by investing in robotics and real estate, spreading those costs over the entire customer base in exchange for long-term service agreements that generate their own ROE. With e-commerce at 15% of retail sales and rising half a percent per year, according to the St. Louis Fed, automated and outsourced logistics will become increasingly relevant to profitable growth. That’s why I’m buying the world’s #1 contract logistics provider. Find a theme and leverage it.

Leveraging Artificial Intelligence

Storage, Spreadsheets and Security

  • Artificial Intelligence leverages 5G, complex data sets and cloud computing at unprecedented speed/scale
  • New tools are need to manage exponentially higher bandwidth demand on existing and NextGen platforms
  • AI is only as good as the infrastructure that enables complex number-crunching and real-time analytics

Inside the Machine – My mentor of many years would always ask the same question to people he interviewed: How do you make the most amount of money on Wall Street? The answer that got the job was “Find a theme and leverage it.” Right now that theme is Artificial Intelligence, just as Cloud Computing was three years ago and 5G before that. Arguably, all three themes are related, and this week’s new pick leverages their combination. As businesses and governments around the world begin integrating AI into their daily operations, demand for AI enabling products will rise significantly. Yes, I want to own AI software companies. I also want to own the infrastructure stocks that make AI possible. This week’s new pick is one such company… a great example of American Ingenuity.
