ON^3

AlphaNinja - FBR Capital out with positive comments about ON Semiconductor (ONNN). The reasons for bullish sentiment(compliments of briefing.com):

-mgmt has a strong track record of execution;

-expect the firm will realize meaningful cost savings given that three fabs are shuttering

-de-levering its balance sheet

-P/E multiples are re-rating higher given the improving stability of the business and the firm's de-levering efforts.

Of the above catalysts, two of them strike AlphaNinja as concrete - that being the strong management and cost savings. Un-knowable are what the street will do with the company's PE (price-to-earnings) multiple, or even what earnings upon which to base that multiple. The balance sheet deleveraging, in the long-run, is a positive. However us simple equity holders already have an idea of balance sheet "opportunities" and much of this is baked into the stock price.


AlphaNinja is just being a jerk here, but one must admire ONNN's gorgeous homepage on the "information superhighway":
