Boat Maker Brunswick Stock Is Upgraded Because Demand Is Hot

Boat maker


caught and upgrade Tuesday morning, because in 2020 people realized they wanted to get outside.

J.P. Morgan analyst Grace Smalley upgraded stock in Brunswick (ticker: BC)—whose products include Boston Whaler and Crestliner boats and Mercury engines—to the equivalent of Buy from Hold. Her price target for the stock went to $79 from $6.

“2020 = Inflection in retail boat sales,” the analyst wrote in a Tuesday research report. “Boat sales have accelerated this year due to favorable wallet shifts as consumers look for viable, socially distanced outdoor recreational activities.” The pandemic has boosted demand for products including RVs and boats. Now boat dealer inventories are low, which bodes well for future demand.

Smalley isn’t alone in her bullish view. Almost 70% of analysts covering the company rate shares Buy. The average Buy-rating ratio for stocks in the

Dow Jones Industrial Average

is about 58%. Her $79 price target is right in line with Wall Street’s average price target.

Barron’s wrote positively about Brunswick stock in June, believing that boating trends and internal company restructuring would drive profit margins higher.

That the stock is cheap doesn’t hurt, either. Shares trade for about 12 times estimated 2021 earnings, a lower multiple than where they traded a few years back. The

S&P 500,

for comparison trades for more than 20 times estimated 2021 earnings, higher than the roughly 16 times multiple afforded by the market a few years back.

The multiple is low despite expected earnings growth. Wall Street expects earnings to go from $4.26 in 2020 to about $6 by 2023.

Since the article first appeared Brunswick shares are up about 5%, based on Monday’s closing price. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average, for comparison, are up 12% and 11%, respectively.

Year to date, through Monday Brunswick shares are up about 5%. The stock was up 4.5% to $65.62 Tuesday morning.

Brunswick reports third-quarter numbers on Oct 29. Analysts are looking for $1.38 in per-share earnings from $1.1 billion in sales. Smalley, for her part predicts $1.46 per share.

LeBron James saved Carmelo Anthony’s life on Bahamas vacation: ‘He jumped off the boat into the water’

While the NBA season continues to remain on hold because of the outbreak of COVID-19, Portland Trail Blazers’ Carmelo Anthony and NBA analyst Dwyane Wade are passing the time by sharing old stories with fans via social media.

Wade and Anthony took to Instagram Live on Friday to recall a 2015 vacation in the Bahamas with their families where LeBron James saved Anthony’s life after a snorkeling trip gone bad.


“We jumped off the boat in the Bahamas. Everybody swam to the little gratto over there, underneath, and we came out,” Anthony said.

While everything seemed fine, the 10-time NBA All-Star quickly realized something was wrong.

“It was my fault though because I’m still trying to see the last little bit of the barracudas snorkeling and all that … I look up, the current is taking me in the middle of the ocean like opposite from the boat,” he said.

Wade added: “We couldn’t see you.”

It was at this point Anthony says James jumped off the boat like “MacGyver.”


“He jumped off the boat into the water. He was bringing me back with one arm. He’s swimming with the other arm and he’s carrying me with one arm,” Anthony said laughing.

“That was special,” he continued. “He saved my life. … Yo Bron, I appreciate that, you saved my life that day. Them little flippers wasn’t working for me.”

Lake Havasu boat ramps open as Arizona pushes outdoor recreation | Coronavirus

All of the boat ramps in Lake Havasu City remain open as part of the essential function to provide outdoor recreation to residents per the governor’s stay-at-home order issued Monday.

Across the Colorado River, however, the Chemehuevi chairman Charles Wood said the tribe has basically shut down the boat ramps with “very limited traffic” remaining.

“There are some local residents that have boats, they are very understanding that we are trying to keep people even off the lake, and from traveling around,” he said.

Wood said the tribe started taking actions to limit movement about two weeks ago, and their efforts have slowly evolved over time as different declarations were announced.

Wood said the hotel and casino are completely vacant and they are not allowing any new campers into the area. Those who were already camping when the coronavirus situation arose have been allowed to stay, however.

As a federally recognized tribe the Chemehuevi have the authority to chart their own course, but Wood said they are relying heavily on advice from various government officials and entities.

“We are listening to the president, we are listening to the governor, and we are listening to Indian Health Services,” Woods said. “I would say 99 percent we are probably following what (California) Gov. (Gavin) Newson has put out — 99 or maybe even 100 percent.”

The Big River boat ramps in La Paz County are also closed.

Meanwhile the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Colorado River Station said all of the public boat ramps in Needles, California, are open.

Outdoor recreation encouraged

On Tuesday many local residents took advantage of the outdoor recreation essential function by heading out to the lake for some fresh air.

Lake Havasu City resident Russ Kavanaugh is an avid bass fisherman and regular on the lake but on Tuesday he had a little company in his boat.

“I’m out because I can’t take the house anymore — I had to get out,” said Russ’ wife Jean Kavanaugh. “This is so confining, but this is the only place you can go where you can social distance, so it is very nice to be out on the lake.”

Lots of locals seem to have had the same idea.

The parking lot at the Lake Havasu State Park boat ramps was mostly full late Tuesday morning. Russ noted that the parking lot looked more like it was a holiday weekend than a weekday in Havasu. Even with the extra crowds, however, Jean said people seem to be keeping to themselves and practicing proper social distancing while putting their boats in and out of the water and that there is plenty of room for everyone out on the lake.

Jean said they have had to tweak how they go about daily life without meetings or church to go to. She said they generally try to go out to eat a couple times a week, but have had to cut back as restaurants have been ordered to close their dine-in operations. Jean
