|BMS - i agree that it looks like a nice safe company. and the insider buys are a plus. here's the data i have that seems to indicate a lower PE than 16.|
from corp presentation:
10 year sales growth 8%
10 year EPS growth 6.6%
10 year cash flow 10%
target sales growth 6% to 8%
target EPS 10%
target CF 10%
industry PE 14
EPS growth 2008 / 2007 = 4%
EPS growth 2009 / 2008 = 9%
so their present earnings of 1.73 = PE of 14.4 (at $25 price)
fairly valued, or a bit overvalued, imo.
prob a good bet, but don't expect the moon.
unless they beat their own expectations / targets.
better bets to make out there...
but an old presentation
