The Heavy Construction Industry is comprised of companies that provide a broad array of engineering, planning, design, consulting, construction, and management services for a wide variety of infrastructure and facility undertakings. Projects range from highways, bridges, mass transit systems, and airports to commercial buildings, power transmission grids, oil and gas exploration sites, and water and wastewater infrastructure. Customers include federal, state, and local governments, as well as private enterprises. Clients are located around the globe, though North America, Europe, Asia/Pacific, and the Middle East are the largest geographic markets. Spending on construction-management services is cyclical. Many commercial clients will increase investment during the middle and late stages of an economic expansion; they usually cut spending in downturns. The
opposite holds true for municipalities. Governments, when possible, spend heavily on infrastructure projects during recessions to stimulate recoveries. Heavy Construction stocks are suitable for investors seeking above-average appreciation. The majority of companies in this sector do not pay dividends, and distributions that are made tend to be modest. Yields rarely exceed 2%. Investors in this industry should focus on a stock´s valuation and its relationship to the current business cycle (trough vs. peak). Those with a long-term view may buy into this sector when the stock market appears to have bottomed. Momentum investors may find appeal when the economy is on an upswing. Thus, Heavy Construction balance sheets are typically strong. This industry holds appeal for a relatively broad population of investors.
