Loop Capital analyst…

Loop Capital analyst Scott Graham initiated coverage of A.O. Smith with a Buy rating and $100 price target. The company's sales are "highly stable" from significant replacement sales in its residential water heater businesses in North America and China, Graham tells investors in a research note. Further, A.O.'s commercial water heaters and residential water treatment businesses provide diversification, adds the analyst.

Consensus $2.76. Raises FY21 revenue view to $3.47B-$3.5B from up 14%-15%, consensus $3.41B. "With strong sales growth and solid demand for our products continuing through October and further inflation-related pricing actions effective in November, we are raising our outlook for full year 2021 sales to increase between 20 and 21% year over year, including approximately $54 million of benefit from China currency translation and excluding sales from Giant. We expect the increase in sales to drive increased profitability with a revised outlook for EPS to between $2.86 and $2.90, up 5% at the midpoint from our previous guidance of $2.70 to $2.76," stated Wheeler.

Reports Q3 revenue $914.6M, consensus $852.25M. "Our global A. O. Smith team delivered strong third quarter results driven by a 20% increase in sales compared with the third quarter of 2020," noted Kevin Wheeler, chairman and chief executive officer. "Demand for our products is strong across all geographies, particularly in North America, resulting in record third quarter sales. Our record performance is a result of focused execution globally and tremendous effort by our procurement and operations teams in an environment in which we were challenged with component shortages, logistical bottlenecks and rapidly rising costs. We remain in close contact with our suppliers and logistics providers to troubleshoot and resolve bottlenecks, as the environment can change quickly and frequently. I have confidence in our teams' abilities to continue to successfully navigate through this environment."

A. O. Smith Corporation…

A. O. Smith Corporation announced that it has acquired Giant Factories, a Canada-based manufacturer of residential and commercial water heaters, with trailing twelve-month sales of approximately $105M. The purchase price is approximately $192M in cash, subject to customary adjustments. Taking into account an expected tax benefit of approximately $6.5M that the company will achieve as a result of treating the transaction as a purchase of assets for tax purposes, and projected operating synergies expected to be achieved over a two-year period, the purchase price represents a multiple of approximately 9.5 x adjusted 2023 projected EBITDA. The acquisition is expected to be neutral to fQ4 EPS due to normal purchase accounting adjustments and accretive to EPS in the first full year post closing.

Catch up on today's…

Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Clearway Energy (CWEN) upgraded to Outperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Michael Lonegan believing Clearway "presents an inexpensive opportunity" to play the decarbonization trend. 2. Comerica (CMA) double upgraded to Outperform from Underperform at Wolfe Research with analyst Bill Carcache saying that knowing the Federal Reserve is targeting mid-2022 for the end of asset purchases increases his confidence that "liftoff by the end of 2022 is indeed likely." 3. A.O. Smith (AOS) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst Michael Halloran believing an attractive entry point has materialized following its recent underperformance which reflects a disconnect to the fundamental setup ahead on favorable price/cost dynamics, upside to volume expectations, and numerous buffer points to residential in 2022 and beyond. 4. Saia (SAIA) upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research with analyst Scott Group saying while he expects supply chain disruptions to continue "well into" 2022, it is possible that Q3 will represent the peak of supply chain headwinds and if the headwinds do start to ease he would expect the laggards in transports this year to start outperforming again. 5. Bloom Energy (BE) upgraded to Strong Buy from Outperform at Raymond James. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
