11:23 EDTJNPR, CAM, EQIX, EADSY, BA, AGUJANA reports new stakes in Juniper, Cameron, Equinix, Airbus
In its most recent quarterly letter to investors, JANA Partners reported new stakes in Juniper Networks (JNPR), Equinix (EQIX), Cameron International (CAM), and Airbus (EADSY). JUNIPER STAKE: JANA's position in Juniper makes it the second noted hedge fund to take an activist stake in the company, joining Elliott Management. JANA says it sees at least $300M of potential savings the company can undertake, adding 40c to EPS, and the firm also says Juniper's balance sheet is overcapitalized. JANA noted it has engaged Juniper on its proposals for increasing shareholder value. OTHER STAKES: JANA also disclosed a new stake in data center operator Equinix. JANA says it "takes comfort" in the fact that 95% of Equinix's revenue is recurring monthly, and says it expects the company will be granted a Private Letter Response by the IRS to convert to a REIT. JANA said it made Cameron International one its largest commitments after the company reported worse-than-expected third quarter earnings in October. The firm expects Cameron to recover margins in 2014, and longer-term sees potential for normalized earning power of more than $5.00 per share. JANA also said it initiated a stake in Airbus, and favorably compared the plane manufacturer to its American-based rival, Boeing (BA). JANA says that at this time a year ago, it took a stake in Boeing, which was one of the firm's most successful investments in 2013, and believes Airbus is now the superior aerospace opportunity. JANA also noted in its letter that its 2013 overall performance of 28.2% fell short of its expectations, primarily due to a drag from an investment in Agrium (AGU), which the firm has now exited. PRICE ACTION: Reports of JANA's stake in Juniper, which broke late last night, coincided with the company's report of better-than-expected earnings. Additionally, no less than three analyst firms have upgraded Juniper's shares, which are up better than 9% in late morning trade. Shares of Equinix jumped following initial reports of JANA's stake and are up about 2% in late morning trade. Following reports of JANA's stake in Cameron, shares jumped, but have since pulled back to be just slightly positive for the session.
