I'm intrigued by the combination of metal cans and space stuff (Kepler!), but the changes to the space program (and the one-customer model of it) combined with concerns about metal cans and the drive for new packaging make me suspect this company won't do well over the long term.

Was this stock $5 per share ten years ago, growing earnings consistently, paying a dividend, buying back shares, and acquiring companies along the way? I think I'll buy in on Monday and hope for a 7-bagger in another 10 years. Seriously though, why isn't this company trading higher? I guess that's a good thing for me.

The stock entered the initial stage of a breakout to new bull market highs and I'm looking for this breakout to carry over.

I have worked for the company, and the orders from new customers are growing by the day. Ball makes a wide variety of products, and I feel that Ball will continue to grow in the years to come.

This company has a 100+ year history of being an innovator in a business that is simply not going away, no matter what the overall economic outlook. This company continues to grow by a balance of acquisitions and increased business. The long-term price history shows a consistent, long-haul performer. Look at the financials - effective reinvestment of profit while still paying dividends to investors. All of this with a P/E ratio that indicates a bargain for such a solid performer. This is a CORE stock in my portfolio.

Investment in new South American production lines should pay off handsomely.

This met a high level screen to indicate a sell and strong underperform against its peers (other tickers in its industry). My 1st version of this spreadsheet devles deep into the company's balance sheet and recent income statements, combined with other relevant price data for the company including insider/institutional holdings, short interest, debt levels, etc.
I'm testing capabilities of this 1st version of my automated, valuation spreadsheet matched with my personal criteria and see how it holds up.

Increase in demand for home canning products should continue to drive demand for company products. The economic downturn is creating a new mindset for consumers to reduce expenses wherever possible. Uncertainty with food delivery and safety systems along with increased costs for fuel will drive consumers toward more local and self grown food products.
