Thursday’s Trading Buzz

happy_hour.jpg

In the Fast Money Happy Hour we go to Devin Tavern in Manhattan for Thursday’s trading buzz.

Manish Vora is the Director of Research, for Monness, Crespi, Hardt & Co., Inc. and he joined the panel for this conversation.

Vora said that large engineering and construction companies have been terrific performers this year, trading up nearly 100% YTD. However, the large E&C (engineering and construction) players are trading at high valuations so he’s focused on smaller E&C names that have backlog and international growth potential.

Vora recommended KHD Humboldt Wedag Int’l (KHD), a company with $1bn market cap, which trades at half the multiple. KHD is tied to concrete capacity in India, Russia and China, which Vora feels has lagged general construction growth.
