Michael Rome of Long Focus Capital presented his in-depth investment thesis on US Concrete (Nasdaq: USCR) at Best Ideas 2018.

US Concrete is a construction materials company focused on Texas, California, New York, and New Jersey. Through the acquisition of aggregates assets, the company has become more vertically integrated and has improved the mix. Michael believes this should be rewarded with a higher multiple.

In addition, USCR sales are entirely U.S.-based and benefit from corporate tax reform. Michael views EPS estimates as too low, as sell-side analysts forecast $6 in 2019. Michael expects EPS of $9 in 2019. With high short interest, a reasonable valuation, and rising estimates, the stock could double within two years, according to Michael.
