Honeywell International Inc. Research Report

In commitment to growth, Honeywell signed a purchase agreement for a new global headquarters in Morris Plains, NJ, subject to the approval of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority. Although the transaction is not anticipated to impact the 2013 financial outlook, the transition to the new area will significantly reduce future operating expenses. The transition is also in line with the company's stated goals to streamline its global real estate footprint. More than 50 percent of its technology portfolio is dedicated to energy efficiency, and the building retrofits of the new site will include Honeywell technologies that will allow for greater energy efficiency.

Cummins Inc. Research Report

US natural gas production is projected to grow for the next 30 years, promising a low cost natural gas supply. This is good news for companies like engine maker, Cummins. The company supplies new engines for oilrigs, Class 8 trucks, and other vehicles including trash trucks and tractors. Cummins announced last year its offering of LNG conversion kits for its own diesel-powered oilrig engines. The company also announced a partnership with Westport to design a line of natural gas engines. If natural gas prices stay low, and production remains high, natural gas could become more appealing to Cummins and other companies buying and operating on- and off-road vehicles. Cummins would also be positioned to fare well because of its international positioning, particularly in China, where natural gas use has strong government support. In 2012, the company earned $1.65 billion on sales of $17.3 billion, and expects revenues to be flat in 2013, due to uncertainty surrounding the timing and pace of improvement in end markets.
