Further Regulation A Positive For Cummins

Author : Date : 2013-7-8 14:33:40

With the Obama administration's recent crackdown on coal-fired power generation, it will only be a matter of time until diesel trucks come into view of the Obama administration's cross-hairs. The Obama administration already has the trucking industry in its sights with changes in regulations with regards to capping the average work-week for a truck driver at 70 hours down from the previous maximum of 82. It's not too much of a stretch to see the Obama administration further regulate diesel truck engines to the point of extinction - I can just see the dancing on Rudolf Diesel's grave (inventor of the diesel engine). With further regulation of the diesel engine on the horizon, investors should take a closer look at Cummins (CMI).

Cummins designs, manufacturers, sells and services engine related products. In particular, Cummins has a joint venture with Westport Innovations (WPRT) for designing, developing and marketing natural gas engines. With the recent advances in extraction of natural gas, North America is drowning in natural gas which has caused the price of natural gas to drop significantly and has made the implementation of natural gas engines more attractive.

In Cummins' Q1 2013 reported results conference call, the company had $3.9 billion in revenue which represented a decline of 12% year-over-year, which doesn't sound too attractive, but Patrick J. Ward, CFO and Vice President, expects Q1 to be a trough in sales and profitability for 2013, so it appears Cummins is currently near the bottom performance-wise. N. Thomas Linebarger, Chairman, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Committee, further noted he expects strength in the on-highway and construction markets in North America to pull the company out of the trough.
