A Leading Specialized Contracting Services Company and a Retail Company Poised to Benefit From the Holiday Season.

This story originally appeared on Zacks

Quanta Services PWR is a leading national provider of specialty contracting services, and one of the largest contractors serving the transmission and distribution sector of the North American electric utility industry. Quanta Services’ shares have outperformed the industry in the year-to-date period. The company has been benefiting from a three-pronged growth strategy and continued strength of the electric power unit. It expects utility, communications, and certain pipeline and industrial infrastructure services — which currently account for approximately 80-90% of revenues — to remain robust in 2021. Quanta Services’ optimism stems from healthy backlog levels which are expected to grow further. Also, rising renewable generation development and associated demand bode well for the company. Quanta Services sees acquisitions as a fundamental component of its strategy to boost market share and develop incremental backlog.Also, raised view for 2021 is encouraging. Worryingly, lower revenues from larger pipeline projects are concerns.  Quanta Services has been maintaining a strong liquidity position to navigate through the current environment.
