Based on past results and valuations at the competition, this company is fairly valued. However, during the economic downturn, they've done something I love -- they've increased the budget for marketing and the sales force. Once hiring picks back up, they should see more than their share of growth from an improved market share. Low debt, +20% return on tangible assets, and a consistent dividend are enough to keep me interested until then.

If anyone has some numbers on the movement of relative market share, I'd love to hear it. I've personally seen more of their trucks and products around, but the plural of anecdote isn't data.
