Written By Elizabeth Monroe

Titan International is a leading producer of specialty tires for various sectors, including agriculture, forestry, mining, construction, and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). The company sells its products under several brand names, such as Titan, Goodyear Farm Tires, and LSW.

The agricultural and other sectors served by Titan have been significantly impacted by the rise in interest rates over the past couple of years. High interest rates affect farmers’ ability and desire to purchase new tractors and other major equipment, leading to a slower replacement cycle for tires.

These challenges have pushed Titan’s stock lower, making it a potentially attractive investment opportunity.

Strategic Moves and Future Potential

Titan International has made several strategic moves in the past year to position itself for stronger future results. These include reducing debt and acquiring Carlstar in February 2024, expanding Titan’s range of offerings for its customers.

Carlstar provides specialty tires and wheels to various industries, including agriculture and niche markets like ATVs, trailers, and forklifts. This acquisition is expected to bring numerous benefits, though it may take a few quarters to fully realize cost and marketing synergies.

Financial Performance and Balance Sheet

Analysts estimate that Titan will earn $0.91 per share in 2024, with revenues expected to reach $2.05 billion. Revenues are projected to grow by more than 8% to $2.22 billion in 2025, with earnings estimated at $1.10 per share.

This results in a price-to-earnings ratio of about 8 times for 2024 and less than 7 times for 2025, which is significantly lower than the S&P 500 Index (SPY) average of over 20.

The balance sheet reveals $683.5 million in debt and around $203.63 million in cash, which seems reasonable for a company with over $2 billion in annual revenues.

Industry Challenges

The agricultural industry is facing widespread challenges due to high interest rates, affecting even major players like Deere & Co (DE). The agricultural business is cyclical, and current conditions suggest that the industry may be at a cyclical trough.

According to the USDA, farm sector incomes reached record highs in 2022 but are expected to decline by about 27% in 2024 from 2023 levels. This decline is due in part to reduced government payments and lower agricultural prices. However, farm incomes are now near levels where a bottom has typically been found, indicating a potential upcycle in equipment and tire replacements.

Potential Upside Catalysts

Several factors could catalyze a rebound for Titan International:

  1. Interest Rate Reductions: The Federal Reserve is expected to lower interest rates later this year, which would reduce financing costs and boost profits for farmers, positively impacting the demand for agricultural equipment and tires.
  2. Strategic Acquisitions: The acquisition of Carlstar is expected to enhance Titan’s financial performance. Management has projected combined earnings power of $250 million to $300 million of adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow of at least $125 million annually.

Potential Downside Risks

Several risks could impact Titan’s performance:

  1. Trade Issues: Import bans and tariffs between countries could negatively affect the agricultural sector.
  2. Weather: Adverse weather conditions could damage crops, reducing farmers’ budgets for equipment and tires.
  3. Government Spending: Reductions in government spending and subsidies for farm programs could negatively impact the sector.
  4. Prolonged High Interest Rates: If the Federal Reserve maintains high rates for an extended period, it could further dampen demand for agricultural equipment and tires.
  5. Economic Recession: Prolonged high rates could lead to a recession, putting additional pressure on farmers.

The recent selloff in Titan’s shares presents a potential buying opportunity for a small starter position in the stock. Despite the challenging environment, Titan has made strategic moves that could enhance its future performance.

If the Federal Reserve lowers rates and achieves a soft landing for the economy, Titan’s stock could rebound rapidly, offering significant upside potential.
