  • 2. Seaport Global Securities analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage of GCP Applied Technologies (GCP), which is a global leader in specialty cement and concrete chemicals, building materials, and packaging sealants and coatings. We have a positive view on global construction trends, and GCP should benefit from secular trends including higher building standards and energy efficiency. GCP's market-leading positions are driven by performance and technology, with its products being specified for some of the most complex projects in the world. Strong customer relationships, technical service, and innovation that provides value to the customer bolster our view that GCP can expand on its market leadership. In most cases GCP's products account for a small portion of the customer's end product, but are essential to performance, with a high cost for failure. GCP's capital-light model produces solid free cash flow, and allows the company to maintain margin performance in cyclical downturns. Packaging coatings are a slow-growth but defensive market in which GCP should leverage its market-leading position in sealants and benefit from emerging market growth. We view GCP as a solid addition to our coatings and building materials coverage, particularly at a time when infrastructure spending is expected to increase. We find GCP shares attractively valued at 9.4x EBITDA, below the midpoint of our assumed 8.5x-11.5x trading range, which reflects some near-term weakness that should give way to better growth beginning in Q2:17. We initiate coverage with a Buy rating and $32 price target." (1/20/2017)
