I've inherited this stock in my portfolio from the Tyco break-up and wondered what you think of it long term.
I've read somewhere where there should be considerable upside to the PPS.
With only a 2% dividend it seems the upside potential is all that makes this a good one to be in?
I believe that the company, in its conference presentations, is guiding investors to expect $5 per share of eps in 2015.
Much of the increase in eps is predicated upon achieving cost savings as a result of recent mergers (both Tyco and the one a year earlier).
The visibility toward those cost savings seems to me to be relatively good.
So in 18-24 months, if investors are looking toward $5 a share in e.p.s. what P/E would you assign to those earnings.? That would be your target price, right?
Of course, there is an element of risk to the company's guidance/projection. Without that uncertainty/risk, making money in te market would be too simple.
PNR has raised it's dividend every year for 36 years in a row, making it a dividend aristocrat. Those stocks are the best to own over time. Re-invest the divvy
Sentiment: Strong Buy
