+ Watch CZZ
on My Watchlist
A global ethanol and sugar company with operations in Brazil.
The changing landscape for ethanol
analyst estimates have moved higher in the past month for the next year
Only fools buy sugar. Masters of monopoly buy locations where sugar is grown. CZZ has about $1 billion in land under a subsidiary called Radar. Subtracting most of that out, it seems that CZZ's PE from non-monopoly operations is at least 9, so that should pay the tax/interest bills while Brazilian land prices rise.
declining rev, ethanol
CZZ is that beaten down stock that just is begging for a comeback.
Looks like its finding a bottom here around $14.
buy while down. good company
Cozan is a complicated stock. Currently selling below book value of 21.70/ sh. This last year they have been on an acquisition binge and I believe the dust hasn't settled yet. Investors get impatient and want immediate gratification on their trades. As Czz digests these assets, I believe that will start to improve their overall numbers.
Positive: - Very good cashflow, makes high debt sustainable - Diversification into various sugar and energy related businesses make them somewhat less sensitive to raw material prices - Food and energy should continue to be high growth businesses - Recent correction brought stock price down to a more reasonable level Negative: - High debt - Risk of adverse weather conditions Category: ICIm
Brazilian company; sale and production of sugar and ethanol. TTM P/E 1.7.
Seems logical that sugar is one of the last commodities to rocket. So many uses. 10B in sales, good agreement with Shell.
The US refuses to use energy efficient sugar to make ethanol, wastefully burning corn instead, creating an greater need for foreign ethanol than ever before. Ethanol gas percentages have been approved up to 15% from 10%. The lower gas mileage for all vehicles using it as fuel will increase the need for both imported gas and imported ethanol. Brazil will keep the largest relative world portion of ethanol production for many years. Their production process is at least 20 years ahead of the world. Cosan is the largest producer in Brazil. An easy pick!
it is a good stock to buy.
I sold half my position in real life @10, DO NOT SELL THIS STOCK!
No-brainer ernery play. Cosan is the distributor for Esso products in Brazil. Has a joint-partnership w/ Shell. Received a large loan from BNDES. Go!
Cosan look set to benefit from any move away from fossil fuels. They are also joining forces with Royal Dutch Shell to distribute fuels within Brazil. They are set to be the world's largest bioenergy operation. If you think that biofuels are the future then they seem well placed to expand.
Brazil has huge natural resources, with sugar cane providing a new fuel ingredient / option. CZZ is a large player in this market.
Best of breed with a fallback to ag.
