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. So for likely all of our readers that are unfamiliar with this company, TriMas manufactures a diverse set of products primarily for the consumer products, aerospace and industrial markets through three segments. These are the TriMas Packaging, TriMas Aerospace, and Specialty Products groups. Let us share with you the company description of each group. TriMas Packaging consists primarily of the "Rieke, Affaba & Ferrari, Taplas, Rapak, Plastic Srl, Intertech and Omega brands. This division develops and manufactures specialty dispensing and closure products for the applications of beauty & personal care, food & beverage, pharmaceutical & nutraceutical, industrial and home care" markets. TriMas website It also makes dispensing products include "foamer pumps, lotion pumps, fine mist sprayers, trigger sprayers, beverage dispensers and flip-top caps, among others. Closures include packaged food lids, child resistant caps, tube, jar and pail closures, and a variety of industrial related products", such as drum closures. Rieke also has a full line of lock-down dispensers. The products enjoy strong demand even in recession. TriMas Aerospace, which is comprised of "Monogram Aerospace Fasteners, Allfast Fastening Systems, Mac Fasteners, Martinic Engineering, RSA Engineered Products and TFI Aerospace brands, designs, qualifies and manufactures precision fasteners, air ducting products and precision machined components" for a few customers. These include commercial aircraft companies, distributors, suppliers and of course, the U.S. military. TriMas Aerospace TriMas Aerospace’s products include highly engineered "fastener solutions for composite and metallic aircraft structural applications including customer-qualified blind bolts, solid and blind rivets, temporary fasteners, collars and standard fasteners". This division also makes air ducting products including systems and connectors used for anti-icing needs and other aerospace applications. Finally there is the Specialty Products segment which is comprised of the Norris Cylinder and Arrow Engine brands. TriMas speciality brands Norris Cylinder designs and manufactures a full range of "highly-engineered high-pressure and low-pressure steel cylinders used for the transportation, storage and dispensing of compressed gases". Arrow Engine develops and manufactures a variety of natural gas powered engines and gas compressors for use within the oil and gas markets. 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. Now, if we adjust for some items that were associated with the realignment and acquisition-related transaction costs, adjusted operating profit was $32.1 million, an increase of 7.2% compared to $30.0 million last year. Not bad.
