On CAPS, 94% of the 257 members who have rated Rockwood believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star silentrumble, who is ranked in the top 5% of our community, and DigitalPaladine.
Earlier this month, silentrumble listed several of Rockwood's positives:
Extremely well positioned as a low cost lithium producer. Diversified in several other high tech industries.... Very favorable value at this stock price considering the current cash flow and future growth projections.
In fact, Rockwood currently trades at a cheapish price-to-cash flow of 7.9. That represents a discount to larger chemical plays like Ashland
CAPS member DigitalPaladine expands on the outperform case:
Lithium and plastics are just two of their many niches. 100% market share in the plastics used to create artificial hip and joint replacements in the US. Demand for lithium is snowballing and this company is poised to reap tremendous gains from this. Beyond Electric Cars and hip replacements the companies Lithium and plastic composites have several other key uses.
