3 Reasons Why Growth Investors Shouldn't Overlook Sunoco LP (SUN)

Dec 2, 2021

Sunoco LP (SUN) is well positioned to outperform the market, as it exhibits above-average growth in financials. This story originally appeared on Zacks Growth investors focus on stocks that are seeing above-average financial growth, as this feature helps these securities garner the market's attention and deliver solid returns. But finding a growth stock that can live up to its true potential can be a tough task. - Zacks That's because, these stocks usually carry above-average risk and volatility. In fact, betting on a stock for which the growth story is actually over or nearing its end could lead to significant loss. However, the Zacks Growth Style Score (part of the Zacks Style Scores system), which looks beyond the traditional growth attributes to analyze a company's real growth prospects, makes it pretty easy to find cutting-edge growth stocks. Sunoco LP (SUN) is one such stock that our proprietary system currently recommends. The company not only has a favorable Growth Score, but also carries a top Zacks Rank. Studies have shown that stocks with the best growth features consistently outperform the market. And for stocks that have a combination of a Growth Score of A or B and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) or 2 (Buy), returns are even better. Here are three of the most important factors that make the stock of this master limited partnership a great growth pick right now. Earnings Growth Earnings growth is arguably the most important factor, as stocks exhibiting exceptionally surging profit levels tend to attract the attention of most investors. For growth investors, double-digit earnings growth is highly preferable, as it is often perceived as an indication of strong prospects (and stock price gains) for the company under consideration. While the historical EPS growth rate for Sunoco LP is 6.6%, investors should actually focus on the projected growth. The company's EPS is expected to grow 743.4% this year, crushing the industry average, which calls for EPS growth of 6.7%. Impressive Asset Utilization Ratio Asset utilization ratio -- also known as sales-to-total-assets (S/TA) ratio -- is often overlooked by investors, but it is an important indicator in growth investing. This metric shows how efficiently a firm is utilizing its assets to generate sales. Right now, Sunoco LP has an S/TA ratio of 2.79, which means that the company gets $2.79 in sales for each dollar in assets. Comparing this to the industry average of 1.06, it can be said that the company is more efficient. In addition to efficiency in generating sales, sales growth plays an important role. And Sunoco LP is well positioned from a sales growth perspective too. The company's sales are expected to grow 47.2% this year versus the industry average of 34.4%. Promising Earnings Estimate Revisions Beyond the metrics outlined above, investors should consider the trend in earnings estimate revisions. A positive trend is a plus here. Empirical research shows that there is a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements. There have been upward revisions in current-year earnings estimates for Sunoco LP. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current year has surged 1.1% over the past month. Bottom Line Sunoco LP has not only earned a Growth Score of A based on a number of factors, including the ones discussed above, but it also carries a Zacks Rank #2 because of the positive earnings estimate revisions.
