I no longer hold this stock in real-life. I am keeping it here, as I believe the stock still has potential at this time. The stock took a big hit from 2008 through 2010, but it has been rebounding since then.

The sales rose 12% last year, and the EPS has almost doubled since 2010. Their profit margin fluctuates, which is something I prefer not to see. But their earned-on-equity has almost doubled since 2010, and their debt is down by about 1/3rd, so both of those are going in the right direction. The P/E ratio is higher than recent history, but the PEG ratio is below 1, so the stock could be considered cheap here. The stock pays a good dividend, (5% last year), and it was raised significantly in 2012, so that bodes well for the future.

Due to the nice dividend, and decent recent growth, I am hoping this stock will return me about 17% per year over the next 5 years. That is why I am keeping this in my CAPS portfolio. We'll have to wait and see how that expectation pans out.

Changing My Caps to Reflect my investing strategy. I start with a simple screener trying to find undervalued dividend paying stocks. Then because I want to invest in things I understand I eliminate any businesses I have not heard of or in areas I lack knowledge ( Financials, Precious Metals). After that I check the Caps Rating and it gets a thumbs up if it is rated 4 stars or higher. Very few 3 star companies will get a thumbs up but occasionally i will go out on a limb with one.

Strong regional competitive advantage, huge amounts of operating leverage and a rebounding construction/manufacturing sector should help this company grow.

A nice play associated with uranium demand.

The runnup in the uranium sector has not *at all* been reflected in peripheral uranium plays. The miners are getting lots of love, but the guys who clean up the mess are in the proverbial toilet.

This one is probably my favorite... Small cap, with a dividend, and unloved. It has had a decent recent run (unlike ES), but there is a high ceiling here if nuclear starts getting traction in the US.

Company looks fine and undervalued from fundamentals and the business has big growth opportunities in the future.

If you are one to believe that uranium mining companies and the like might do well over the long haul due to a resurgence of pro-nuclear energy policy, then this, I would think, is a good complimentary play.
