- Barclays sours on the multi-industry conglomerate sector, downgrading Dover (NYSE:DOV), Israel Chemical (NYSE:ICL), Wesco (NYSE:WCC), W.W. Grainger (NYSE:GWW), Xylem (NYSE:XYL) to Neutral from Outperform, seeing a scenario where stock returns are limited to mid-single-digit levels in 2015 and only slightly better in 2016, while rising cycle risks cap any upside to P/E multiples.
- However, the firm offers plenty of praise for Outperform-rated General Electric (NYSE:GE), which it says is "in the midst of positive change" thanks to the simplification of GE's industrial holdings, a shrinking asset base in GE Capital, outsized margin improvements, best-in-class dividend yield, and potential for management change.
- Barclays believes that in a year in which the S&P may stumble and lower commodity prices and forex headwinds will mean muted EPS growth in the multi-industry group, GE’s industrial earnings growth can move into the sector's top quartile.
