Leucadia’s performance in the debt capital market has improved with solid contribution from equity capital markets, advisory activities and a favorable sales and trading environment. With significant margin contribution from National Beef and other businesses, Leucadia remains well positioned to grow. The company’s businesses have separate revenue streams that move according to their own cycle and mitigate operating risks. A pro-growth business environment with a lower corporate tax structure should bode well for the economy and financial markets in general and Jefferies in particular. In addition, Trump’s plan to spend $1 trillion in infrastructure projects over a period of 10 years and regulatory rollbacks augur well. The company outperformed the industry in the last three months. However, high network maintenance costs to prevent any intrusion and data theft of confidential client information strain margins for the company.
