This stock returns cash to the shareholders rather than spending it on misadventures as some other companies do. Also a lot of it's competition in the small appliance sector has gotten out of the business. It has a clean balance sheet (no debt), the earning have grown at a 23% rate over the past 5 years (including 3 recession years) and it is trading at an 11 PE on trailing earnings.
