Identifying Potential Ideas - Resulting from the 3-Step Analysis...
In 2018, there have been 11 companies which have announced it will be doing a Spinoff, either by 2018 or 2019. Out of these, five are Large Caps, five are Mid-Caps and one is Small Cap. Among this, the sector break-up is: Basic Material (1), Consumer Cyclical (3), Consumer Non-cyclical (1), Energy (2), Industrial (3) and Technology (1).

From the list of names on the calendar, we have identified four announced Spinoffs with upside potential leading to their distribution:

EQT Corp. (EQT);
Brunswick Corp. (BC);
Genuine Parts Co. (GPC);
