Let’s delve into the factors that make the company investment-worthy at the moment.

Strength in Business: Carlisle has been benefiting from the strength in the reroofing market in the United States and the growing demand for energy-efficient building products in Europe. Strength in the company’s medical technologies business with solid backlog and recovery in the commercial aerospace business in the United States are likely to boost its performance in the coming quarters. Also, its initiatives related to product introductions and strength across its newer platforms of Sealants & Adhesives, Foam and Powder are likely to be beneficial. For 2022, it expects revenue growth of 25-30% on a year-over-year basis.

Benefits From Acquisitions: The company’s buyout of California-based Henry Company (September 2021) has been strengthening its product offerings for construction activities. It expects the Henry buyout to boost its earnings by $1.50 per share in 2022. Also, its decision to acquire MBTechnology, Inc. (February 2022) will likely strengthen its building products platform, boosting its energy-efficient solution offerings. Acquisitions contributed 4.8% and 12.9% to revenue growth in the third and fourth quarters of 2021, respectively.

Shareholder-Friendly Policies: It focuses on rewarding shareholders through share repurchases and dividend payouts. In 2021, the company repurchased shares worth $315.6 million and paid out dividends worth $112.5 million. Also, in August 2021, it hiked its quarterly dividend rate by 3%. At 2021-end, $5.1 million worth of shares under its authorization was left for repurchase.

Estimate Revisions: In the past 30 days, analysts have increasingly become bullish on the company, as evident from positive earnings estimate revisions. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for its 2022 earnings has trended up from $13.21 to $13.86 on one upward estimate revision against none downward.
