Top performing stock that is currently oversold. With a Forward PEG of 0.4, URI is selling at a 62% discount to its 5 year average, and a 76% discount to the overall market (S&P). Analysts are raising both earnings estimates and price targets. The stock has bounced off its 50 day moving average on each occasion, and it has been a top performer over the last 5 years.

What a wonderfully boring winner! They rent over 3,000 classes of equipment, primarily to construction and industrial companies. Just what people are looking for in 2014. If I have any concern, it's that too many analysts already have a buy rating on the stock, but it's still cheap.

When the economy rebounds and industries are running wide open, URI stock will out perform the s&p500. Every manufacturer rents equipment for maintenance outages as well as for normal operations. Energy, mining, drilling , paper makers etc.

Construction market is coming back and more homeowners are tackling their own projects instead of hiring contractors.

This stock was grossly undervalued a month ago but has been creeping up. I bought on March 9th for $3.04 and have already made a reasonable profit. This company tends to have a boom and bust cycle which follows the construction economy. I bought this in 2002 for about $5 and sold in 2007 for about $33. It is a good company that is the leader in its field but is beat up by macro conditions. They have closed a number of under-performing stores and bought back shares so that now there are only sixty million outstanding. The economy will eventually recover and URI will be well positioned to take advantage. Sure the company isn't very profitable at this exact moment but if you are a buy and hold value investor as I am, you can make a lot riding this company up over the next five to seven years.

Estimated free cash flow of 2$ per share for 2009 according to value investor Bruce Berkowitz.

If this trun out to be true, then this stock is selling at only 2.5 times cash flow.

Who wouldn't like to be able to purchase a business at this price level?

Solid management and planning for upcoming rough years conservatively, they do have lots of debt, but their assets can be liquified fairly quickly if needed...debt not due till 2012 though.

Balance sheet from last year took large losses on new equipment purchases that hurt it's earnings report. 2009 and beyond will output better numbers and the Obama stimulus package should increase demand for their rental units with new construction.

I love this company. I first was tipped by my colleges construction and the equipment being used. Along with Bobcats, about every machine being used is rented through United Rentals. The stock plunged after the failed takeover, but it has continued to put up numbers in a very tough macro environment.
