Lynk observed:

“We reiterate our BUY rating and C$73.00 one-year target price on SNC-Lavalin (SNC) shares following solid Q2/18 results from 407 International Inc. (Highway 407), including another dividend increase. We believe SNC affords investors a compelling growth and value proposition at current levels. On our 2018 E&C adjusted EPS estimate, SNC trades at 11.5x, excluding Capital, compared to its peers (Fluor, Jacobs, Stantec, the group’s mid-cycle forward multiple of ~14x. This discount seems unwarranted for a company with best-in-class EPS growth potential in 2018 (based on the mid-point of guidance), the second best ROIC, a strong balance sheet (0.6x pro forma debt/ EBITDA), and a rising backlog.”

Lynk has an average return of 5.7% when recommending SNC – Lavalin.
