Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation

Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Corporation (GLDD) performs in two major segments, "dredging" and "environmental and infrastructure." It is the largest dredger in the U.S. and news includes acquisition of the largest dredging ship "Ellis Island." It does work mostly domestically and largely in concert with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, but also in the Middle East. News on the company included legal firms for class action shareholder lawsuits lining up at the door in late 2015, after the company apparently issued guidance that was too rosy. The company suspended further guidance prognostications and several key executives apparently responsible for the guidance resigned apparently under pressure. The stock took a major hit falling back to as low as $3 / share but later bounced back to as high as $7.50.

Analysts like the stock and it appears to have somewhat erratic but stable earnings potential, but showed losses for all but one of the past five years. Prospects look better with significant backlog and a dominant position in the dredging industry. News consists largely of new contracts in various parts of the U.S. mostly in the southeastern part, but as far west as California.

The company has an unacceptably-low Zenith Index indicating poor fundamentals, although others would argue with this including Standard & Poor's which gives the company its highest rating. Institutions are net sellers, although Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) is the largest institutional holder, a very good sign, although DFA is unloading some of its holdings. Zenith's Index's problem is mainly due to erratic earnings, some recently weak stock share performance and increasing debt load.

The company's website, management's concern for shareholders, and corporate governance appears to us to be exceptional. Researchers appear to be slightly negative to neutral on the stock. Sentiment on the stock appears positive although the heavy construction industry as a whole is weak. GLDD is one of the strongest in that group and will obviously benefit from any instrastructure improvement bills passed by Congress.

The company needs to make and is making cost structure improvements. We like the stock as a trading stock and see potential for it to go higher as it has good cash flow at present. GMI Analyst is not happy with its accounting practices. The technical chart pattern looks very good to us and the stock would probably make a good day-trading candidate but mostly looking to the upside.

Channeling Potential

 
The summary below includes a value for `Degree,' which refers on a
scale of 1 to 10 the range of a channel in the period under consi-
deration compared to the total range of price movement. It also looks
for the last closing price to be within the channel, otherwise zeroed.
The `Index' is the `Degree' weighted for volatility.  Generally, the
the higher the index, the more suitable is the stock for trading as
a `rolling stock' between channel high and low points.

"Neurostock" can only track long trades. Therefore its performance, as tracked by itself on stocks which are consistently falling, may not appear as good as it could if each "sell" signal were a "short sale."
