I've been studying JCI for awhile now and have done a fundamental analysis. The current price (supported by a decent balance sheet / cash flow) is tempting and I believe that JCI's parts are probably worth more than the company as a whole. Question: In your opinion, what segment is going to drive growth for JCI (i.e. auto parts, batteries, energy management systems, etc.)? And, who could possibly be a suitor(s) ? I continue to scratch my head on this one and remain uncertain to pull the proverbial trigger...Any color would be appreciated...RJ
I could see the company spinning off a sector or 2 but I seriously doubt anyone is buying JCI as a whole.
I worked for JCI in the 80's (HVAC) and started buying the stock then at a 10% discount, pension and stock allowed me to retire at 50.
I bought 500 yesterday as I thought it was oversold, since I have a LOT of JCI I dumped them for about a $400 tax free ( Roth) profit today.
I have made a lot of money both holding and trading this stock
