Hot Stocks To Own Right Now

Calls for a break-up at United Technologies (UTX) are back on the rise, particularly as CEO Greg Hayes recently seemed more inclined to consider the option. Investors need only review his talk at the Barclays Investment Conference just a few days ago to see how the hard-line stance against the idea appears to be eroding. I suspect we’ll see plenty of pundits pounding the table on the necessity of a break-up, and while I’m generally a proponent of spin-offs as a means of unlocking value, I’m not quite sold on the story here. While the downsides of a break-up have moderated in recent years, the upsides don’t quite seem to be there either. In my opinion, rather than unlocking significant value, I fear that a break-up would distract investors from the underlying narrative of United Technologies. It is one of my favorite large caps and is a go-to recommendation for those looking for great risk-adjusted exposure to incredibly stable and well-protected end markets. I’m not sure that a separation is the way for management to create value for current shareholders.
