H & E Equipment Services, Inc.

H&E Equipment Services, Inc. HEES is a solid choice for investors seeking exposure to the machinery space. The company is poised to gain traction from its initiatives to acquire meaningful businesses, healthy end-market demand and international expansion.

H&E Equipment reported better-than-expected earnings in three of the last four quarters, pulling off an average earnings surprise of 34.66%. Notably, the company’s shares have rallied 78.5% in the last three months, outperforming 27.1% gain of the industry.

H&E Equipment performed well in third-quarter 2017, with earnings per share surpassing a consensus estimate by 94.87%. Revenues grew 5.9% primarily on the back of 6% increase in equipment rental revenues, 9.3% growth in new equipment sales, 7.9% increase in used equipment sales and a slight 1.6% rise in parts sales. Gross margin improved 30 basis points year over year.

H&E Equipment is well placed to gain traction from the strengthening non-residential construction end market. Notably, revenue contribution from this end market was 63% in the third quarter. Also, healthy Gulf Coast activities, active energy market, rise in industrial production, long-term industrial projects and infrastructure backlogs are positives for the company. Its equipment fleet is well maintained and young, with average rental fleet age of 34.3 months, lower than the industry average of 43.4 months.

In addition, H&E Equipment believes in expanding its businesses geographically and widening its product portfolio through its acquired assets and expansion of greenfield sites. Notably, the company recently signed an agreement to acquire Contractors Equipment Center (“CEC”), a Colorado-based equipment rental company. CEC, which primarily serves the non-residential construction market, will strengthen H&E Equipment’s footprint in Colorado as well as double its branch count to six.

Earnings estimates for both 2017 and 2018 have been revised upward by two brokerage firms in the last 30 days. A consensus estimate stands at $1.61 for 2017 and $1.46 for 2018, reflecting a respective increase of 43.8% and 12.3% from shortly ago.

Other observations include modestly compensated executives indicating good corporate governance, a neutral institutional sentiment, favorable analysts and researchers, slightly lower projected earnings, no insider trading, controlled debt, news concerned largely with refinancing, very strong chart patterns fitting with favorable interpretation from most technical charting patterns, a substantial breakout from a previous trading range into more of a buy and hold status.

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.

Neural Network Prediction

"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."
