on My Watchlist
The Company is in the production and marketing of groundwater and fuel pumping systems.
3rd Party Pick
Great management in solid sector; international exposure
5 STAR, Small-cap, dividend payer
There is still some potential downside left in general through no fault of its own. The market has dragged down so many great companies for no real reason. I really like the insider ownership of 23.5% and the quarterly earnings growth of 47.7%. Not to mention a sweet little dividend. Also, even though they have a fairly narrow market niche in pumping systems, their customer base is quite diverse. They make systems for residential pumping needs as well as off shore drilling and mining pumps.
Feeling for the bottom. Still overpriced.
Franklin Electric Co., Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, manufacture, and distribution of groundwater and fuel pumping systems, electronic controls, and related parts and equipment. While this market is in significant turmoil at this time and supply/demand vs inventories will see some imbalances for the next 12 months, Franklin has ourperformed all competitors for the past 10-12 years in the more complicated component of the system. This allowed them to "own" the motor market in this application. An end user or supplier with any experience in this market will be well aware of the success and quality of Franklin in the water market as well as their success in forward integration in the gasoline pumping market. The primary difference being the depth of the well and the viscosity of the product.
