In a report released today, Alex Rygiel from B.Riley FBR reiterated a Buy rating on Tutor Perini Corp (TPC), with a price target of $24. The company’s shares opened today at $18.47.

Rygiel wrote:

“We are raising our 2019 and 2020 estimates following 4Q18 results on 2/27, which we believe was a turnaround quarter for the company, including solid margin improvement Y/Y and sequentially, across all segments. We expect 2019 to be more back-half loaded given the 1Q weather and timing of project starts and expect margins to improve for the full years 2019 and 2020. Record backlog of $9.3B confirms that TPC is heading into significant growth in 2019 and 2020. As well, bidding opportunities appear to be significant across all segments and with less than a handful of contractors that can execute $1B+ projects, we believe TPC is well positioned to win more than its share of work. One overhang on the stock remains TPC’s timing of unbilled receivables collections.”
