TriMas (NASDAQ:TRS) Has A Somewhat Strained Balance Sheet
Warren Buffett famously said, 'Volatility is far from synonymous with risk.' So it seems the smart money knows that...
TriMas: This Supplier Has Big Upside
Strong performance despite macro headwinds. Value is relatively attractive given projections for future performance. Steady top line growth and a return to bottom line growth to come following acquisitions and improved efficiencies. A healthy balance sheet. While it would seem for now that the macro picture is getting clearer with GDP contracting two quarters in a row (mild recession), consumer sentiment weakening based on all of the earnings reports our team has scoured, and the Fed possibly slowing its pace of hikes, markets are finding some footing that last few weeks. That said, we are not out of the woods yet. The best trades right now have been the ones panning out in about a quarter or so, while some of the more volatile ones have played out in weeks. Today we are highlighting a name that we think moves from the $20s into the $30s. It has moderate growth and good value. That is a combination that has worked for us. It is pretty low beta, but we would like to buy two lots, and look to jettison over $31 for a nice 10-15% gain. The name in question is TriMas Corporation (TRS). Who is TriMas? We are sure that is not a household name for many of you.

Stock trading So now you have a solid foundation of the operations. The stock has ebbed and flowed, and has pulled back heavily with the overall market. We like a buy in the $20s: BAD BEAT Investing The play Target entry 1: $28.75-$28.95 (20% of position) Target entry 1: $27.75-$28.00 (30% of position) Target entry 2: $25.40-$25.60 (50% of position) Stop loss: $23 Target exit: $31.50-$32.00 Discussion The stock is not wild, but if the market moves lower, we can get our second leg. I like management here, and performance is solid. TriMas Q2 slides They are growing and have great value. They just reported a decent Q2. Top line growth evident TriMas reported Q2 2022 net sales of $237.7 million, an increase of 8.5% vs. the $219.0 million in Q2 2021, primarily as a result of increased demand in TriMas' Specialty Products group and acquisition-related sales. Currency exchange however weighed a good amount. TriMas Q2 Slides Not only are sales growing steadily, the company is profitable, and growing said profit. The company reported operating profit of $29.9 million in Q2, an increase of 16.8% vs. the $25.6 million in Q2 2021.

Not bad.
