+ Watch JCI
on My Watchlist
The Company operates in three primary businesses: building efficiency, automotive experience and power solutions.
S & P 5 star,50.5
moderate PE & 1.7% yield
With rising energy costs this company's environmental makeovers save a ton of money. More companies are seeing the initial outlay is greatly offset by the continual energy savings and increase in property value.
This is the best performer in my portfolio. They are in the business of green retrofitting commercial building air conditioning systems. This is a major growth business.

It gets the business
Bad call to downgrade this past week. Stock has room to go higher.
Because Cramer Says so...lol
Climate change is going to have an exponential effect on everything over the next five years. More efficient and cost effective batteries are going to be increasingly important in our attempts to reduce CO2 emissions. I think JCI will benefit from that
I've liked JCI for a long time, but I have to admit longer-term (since highs of 2007 and 2011), the stock is down from its highs. JCI though, until recently, was lagging behind the S&P for every time period except the 10-year meter stick.Their EPS, over time, has been inconsistent but I had the unfortunate luck to rate them as they were rebounding off their lows in July/Aug 2012. Since their fate is intimately linked to the Auto industry, I see them doing well as the economy revs up but it has a Building controls division and therefore, is not a auto pure-play, therefore there are other stocks that are better yardsticks for that. The 2% dividend is in line with the S&P.

Well-covered in three key recovery areas, and is moving aggressively in overseas markets with its less visiable strengths in power and building.
One of the stocks picked for MF's Stocks 2012. It has a very low valuation (trailing P/E of 10.3). I calculated its Graham number at $31.03, so it is a value pick for me. It may take some patience to see results on this stock since a large segment of its revenue comes from auto industry (batteries) and until people start purchasing new cars again, this stock may stagnate. It should be noted that two of its competitors have filed bankruptcy so their competition has declined.
Good all round financials, debt under control, strong building segments (HVAC) that will dampen any cyclical effects from the auto industry thus limiting the downside. Leaving the upside to be reaped if economy does pick up in 12 months. Reason to opt in: Wanted exposure to recovery in the auto industry but not in full measure.
Unprecedented sell off, huge pop coming
