NEW YORK, Oct. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ABM (NYSE: ABM), a leading provider of facility solutions, announced the initiation of an Energy Performance Contracting program for McKeesport Area School District (MASD), located in McKeesport, Pennsylvania. By creating projected savings of $7.8 million in energy and operating costs, ABM’s custom solution empowers MASD leadership to reallocate funds to critical improvements for their learning environment, including indoor air quality. “To really help schools today, facility solutions have to also be funding solutions,” said Scott Giacobbe, ABM’s Chief Revenue Officer. “I’m proud of our teams’ ability to find opportunities for energy and operational savings, and then use that to improve learning spaces within a model of good fiscal stewardship, like we were able to do with McKeesport.”The main facility of McKeesport Area High School was completed in 1961 without air conditioning. Installing a new HVAC system to improve ventilation, temperature, and humidity control required engineers to design a custom facility retrofit.In addition to energy savings and operational cost reductions from improved lighting, HVAC, and building control systems throughout the district, the project enabled improvements for both athletic and STEM facilities. Renovations to four science labs included exhaust hoods and other safety equipment. The new track surface reasserts McKeesport’s eligibility to host track meets, including WPIAL (Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League) events.ABM’s Energy Performance Contracting Program enables a school system to invest in critical facility upgrades without drawing new capital from the community. The program is designed to drive costs out of a district’s operating budget, redirecting savings to fund critical facility needs and educational initiatives. ABM works with more than 500 K-12 school systems, colleges, and universities throughout the U.S. This video outlines how ABM provides a way to empower investment in educational facilities without upfront costs or tax increases.“MASD utilized ABM to make much needed upgrades to several of our facilities,” said Dr. Mark P. Holtzman, Jr., Superintendent of McKeesport Area School District. “Those improvements allow us to continue to provide a first-class experience on our campuses for our students and staff inside and outside of our classrooms.”McKeesport Area School District serves approximately 3,200 students from Pre-K through 12th grade for the communities of McKeesport, Dravosburg, White Oak, Versailles, and South Versailles. The project provided upgrades for every school and McKeesport Stadium, helping to improve educational equity across the district. Highlights include the following energy conservation measures and upgrades for educational and athletic spaces: * Adding air conditioning to McKeesport Area High School (MAHS), including on-site construction and piping required * Installing new and upgraded building automation systems, including a web-based front-end and new controllers, valves, actuators, and sensors * Renovating four science labs, including new lab hoods, fans, and duct work, new work surfaces, sinks, gas valves, and eyewash stations * Replacing or upgrading HVAC assets, such as new split systems, rooftop units, and energy-saving variable frequency drives (VFDs) * Upgrading boiler plants, including boiler and domestic water heater replacements * Installing a new pool heater rated for 98% thermal efficiency * Retrofitting and replacing lighting with efficient LED technology * Replacing oversized transformers with new, energy-efficient transformers and installing capacitor banks for power factor correction * Installing water conservation for each school, including repairs to the rainwater harvesting system at Twin Rivers Elementary * Providing computer power management software throughout the district, including technical support and updates * Renovating MAHS and McKeesport Stadium locker rooms including plumbing and piping, locker replacements, flooring upgrades and wall repairs * Repairing and weatherproofing stadium facilities, including bleachers and fencing * Repairing exterior windows and damaged interior walls at Founders Hall Middle School * Installing new control systems to operate existing geothermal systems efficiently at Twin Rivers ElementaryAdditional technical work and expertise was provided by franchisees with ABM Franchising Group’s Linc Service and TEGG networks.

Trading an earnings catalyst events can be very rewarding (5-20% returns in a matter of minutes or hours) but it is also very risky. Timing plays a key role in whether a trade is profitable or not. Here is our general guideline for how we trade these events in-house.

ENTRY: The system for entry is simple and mechanical. We enter our position at or near market close based on the Trajectory Analysis study (SEE TRADE PLAN TAB) completed a few hours prior. For stock trades it’s a simple BUY or SELL order based on a preset trade allocation amount. Options trades cannot be traded after-hours.

After the earnings release occurs in the aftermarket, we review the financial data and see how it compares to our models. Was it a beat or a miss on expectations? What does the forward guidance look like? Are there other important supplemental metrics reported? (such as subscribers, or same-store sales etc). Often the stock price can swing wildly if the release metrics are mixed or there is no clear cut bull or bear bias. We decide if we stay in and ride it, or get out in the aftermarket.

EXIT:  In the majority of cases where the direction call was correct (short or long) the best time to take profit is the following day about an hour after market openIf the direction call was wrong, or the release data is mixed, we find it best to get out of the trade quickly in the aftermarket, cutting losses or taking a small profit if possible. If the actual release numbers meets or exceeds or models, we stay in and ride the profits (short or long). Exiting a trade is more art than science, based on experience trading that particular stock, general market conditions and the momentum of the market reaction to the release news.

PROFIT/LOSS: Knowing when to take profit or a loss on a trade is an individual decision based on experience and the risk/reward appetite of a trader. This is why traders can lose money on the same event that another trader profited from. None of this is easy and the risk is high. The more experience trading volatile catalyst events the easier it becomes to make good trading decisions. Before you decide to trade this event you should ready all the risks associated with this type of trading. (see risk disclosures here)
