Tutor Perini: Time To Execute

Record operating cash flow reported by Tutor Perini in Q1 this year. Although Tutor Perini reported a bottom-line loss, earnings guidance for the full year was maintained. TPC stock should recover the psychological $10 level before long. Intro We wrote about Tutor Perini (TPC) back in March when we stated that the company needed to begin to turn over capital faster. Although the fourth quarter last year was disappointing from a sales and earnings perspective, the company's recent first-quarter earnings report was more encouraging for a number of reasons which we will get into. From a technical standpoint initially, however, shares have continued to lose ground since the announcement of those first-quarter earnings back in May. Shares are now trading well below the $10 level so it will be interesting to see if shares can bottom here over the near term. We state this because the company finally managed to generate a sizable amount of operating cash flow ($121 million) in the first quarter as a result of multiple cash collections and ongoing disputes which finally came to an end. Management will now be hoping that this record Q1 cash flow can act as a catalyst for sustained improvement to come. Investors who follow this company will be well aware of the various external factors which can affect this company's operations. Trading conditions, as well as the speed of collections all, obviously tie into how fast sales and earnings can be internally generated. Although the timing of a long-play may still be off here, TPC's risk/reward profile from both a profitability and valuation standpoint is beginning to stack up here for the following reasons. Tutor Perini Trying To Recover Support ( Tutor Perini's Profitability Despite the fact that the company reported a bottom-line loss of $0.42 per share due to a legal ruling which did not go the company's way, full-year guidance was maintained which was encouraging. From an investor's standpoint, the Q1 reported loss is temporary in nature and we expect roles to be reversed later this year when decisions from other disputes should go the company's way. Furthermore, backlog trends clearly demonstrate the strong demand the market has for Tutor Perini's services (Backlog stood at $8.3 billion at the end of Q1) with multiple award wins (Eagle Mountain pipeline, etc.) in the building and civil segments following on into the second quarter. This bullish trend should have legs given the fact that funding from the federal infrastructure bill is expected to be spun out over the next five years or so. Earnings revisions are starting to be dialed up with the company's Q2 estimate of $0.42 per share up over $0.11 over the past 30 days alone. The third-quarter estimate of $0.56 per share also has gotten a boost over the past 30 days which leads us to believe that if these trends continue, the market sooner rather than later will begin to price the shares upward.
