UL Solutions Insiders Buy After the IPO

[content-module:CompanyOverview|NYSE:ULS]UL Solutions (NYSE: ULS), held by UL Standards & Engagement, was IPO’d in early April with little fanfare. The IPO resulted in volatility and a lower price point that insiders took advantage of. The company ranks in the number one position for the number of insiders buying, with six purchasing on April 16th, just before the offering window closed. Insider ownership is light at 0.3% but offset by substantial institutional and corporate ownership, which runs closer to 80%. 

Trends supporting the business before the spin-off include growth and widening margin. The company is well-positioned as a safety and testing sciences player and is expected to continue growing this year. The healthy balance sheet carries little leverage, so cash flow is unimpeded. The IPO raised more than $800 million in capital that can be used to improve shareholder value. Investors in this stock may expect to see it invest in growth, repurchase shares, or start a dividend distribution over the coming years. Potential avenues for growth include new and developing technologies that will enhance service capability or drive demand for services.

[content-module:CompanyOverview|NASDAQ:FWONK]Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A) makes headlines for many reasons, but for some reason, its interest in Formula One Group (NASDAQ: FWONK) slips under the radar. It is the most active buyer of the stock regarding insiders and has made fifteen purchases in the last three months. Berkshire owns about 4% of the company and may continue; FWONK (the series C shares, which trade at a higher volume than Series A (NASDAQ: FWONA)) is the most bought by insiders in terms of dollar value. Analysts rate FWONK at Moderate Buy and see it advancing about 20% at the consensus. 

Shares of Formula One Group have been trending higher and show favorable technicals. The market is moving up from support at the 30-day and 150-day EMAs with bullish MACD and stochastic. The market should be able to rise to the next critical resistance target, which is near $74. A move above $74 would be bullish and may be catalyzed by the upcoming earnings report. The company is expected to grow its top line by 50%, impressive in any sector.
