Johnson Controls International is a diversified industrial and technology company with a focus on building technologies and solutions as well as power solutions, including heating, ventilating, control systems, fire detection and suppression, and electronic security systems among other things.
Action to take: Trading at 15 times forward earnings, paying a 2.5 percent dividend yield, and with modest growth, the company will likely perform in line with the market. Buyers may want to consider shares under $35, a modest discount to where shares are currently trading near $42, but where shares could easily pull back to on a market decline.
Given the company’s beta close to the market, speculators may want to consider a January 2020 $45 call, trading for around $1.00, or $100 per contract, to bet on a rally in share price, or a January 2020 $35 put option, trading around $60 per contract, as a hedge against the overall market.
