GPC comprará Alliance Automotive; de momento parece que el mercado lo acoge bastante bien, subida del 7%
Había visto la subida pero no sabía el por qué de la misma. Una pena porque justo esta semana tenía intención de añadir más visto que la cotización no se movía de mi precio de compra. En fin, nunca sabes.
Bueno, ya habra otras ocasiones…
Genuine Parts Company has been a good long-term holding for dividend investors. Management’s determination to separate off the S.P. Richards segment will ultimately free the company of its lowest quality business and allow it to focus on growing its higher quality Automotive and Industrial divisions.
Simply put, the remaining GPC will have a higher growth rate, a superior margin profile, and better prospects for growing the dividend going forward.
On the other hand, Essendant appears to be a risky investment for legacy GPC investors if the spin-off and merger still end up going through despite Staple’s interest in Essendant. The company is facing intense competition, undergoing restructuring, and has significant debt on the balance sheet.
As a result, the spin-off’s dividend could be in jeopardy if the merger goes poorly and does not generate management’s expected synergies.
