Spin-Off Should Reveal Dover's Earning Power

With volatile Apergy on its own, Dover is leaner and more focused.


Three major factors are behind our fresh take on  Dover (DOV):

  • The spin-off of the company’s upstream oil and gas business as publicly traded Apergy.
  • The naming of Richard Tobin as CEO, effective May 1.
  • The October 2017 disclosure that Daniel Loeb’s Third Point hedge fund has taken a stake in the company.
