Vulcan Sees Robust End-Market Demand in Q3, but Inflationary Pressures Persist

Spencer Liberman Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Spencer Liberman |

Aggregates producer Vulcan Materials is well positioned to benefit from the ongoing recovery of U.S. construction spending. We forecast strengthening demand growth for the public sector and modest growth for the private sector. Accounting for roughly 40% of shipments, public-sector demand is generally more stable, and projects, primarily highway construction, are more aggregate-intensive per dollar of spending. Federal funding power has weakened as better vehicle mileage and inflation have diminished the buying power of the $0.18 per gallon gasoline tax, unchanged since 1993. The FAST Act, passed in December 2015, provided stability and near-term funding certainty, but did not solve the still-weakening gas tax. However, long-term federal funding was passed in late 2021, totaling $1.2 trillion.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
