- Moody's thinks Newell Rubbemaid (NWL -2.6%) boosted its business profile with the acquisition of Jarden (JAH -1.8%).
- "Jarden will open up new distribution channels for Newell's products such as schools, and significantly expand its brand portfolio, allowing it to cross-sell Jarden's products with its own," observes the ratings agency.
- Risks to watch for includes the challenge of integrating the new Jarden business and taking on a higher level of leverage. Moody's sees Newell's leverage ratio falling back below 3.5X after two years through debt reduction and EBITDA growth.
- Newell trades around $37 vs. a 52-week range of $34.50 to $50.90.
