The company would have to grow earnings over 17% a year for the next 5 years to justify $18.84/share.

Part of a screener test. I looked at 4-5 star stocks, with a dividend yield above 2.5%, gross margins above 25%, price 0-50% below 52-week high, with 3-year EPS of 5+, P/E < 40. These are all interesting PEGY plays for me.

Decent growth, nice dividend yield, super-low beta reflecting stable business model, beaten down with the market. Lots to like.

I'm not exactly sure how it came about, but shares of Flower Foods dropped 10% in one day. Their earnings report came out yesterday and although it could have been better, it wasn't run-for-the-hills-bad. In this quarter they announced a 3-for-2 stock split and increased their annual dividend rate by 12% per share. Flowers Foods acquired Tasty Baking Company (along with Tastykake's debt) and they've had to layoff some employees due to redundant positions after the merger. Earnings per share were less than what analysts predicted due to "higher input costs across all segments," (ingredients, packaging, natural gas).
Many shareholders couldn't stand the heat so they fled the kitchen. In my opinion, the sell off was a bit overboard. Flowers' management is excellent and have shown that they can manage risks, reduce costs and make intelligent acquisitions. The company is a slow and steady grower that pays a dependable dividend.

Steady growth internally and through acquisitions - just completed purchase of TastyKake company out of Philadelphia. Company does not distribute nationally yet - currently products mainly in Southeast, MidAtlantic states. Lots of potential for increased distribution and new product acquisitions.

This account tracks the less exciting stocks from my watch list - companies that are easy to understand with clean balance sheets and good track records in relatively straight-forward industries.

This stock still has a lot of growth left in it. It is fairly valued and it is a well run company that should do well going forward. People will buy bread and buns and donuts regardless of how well the economy is doing and this company is positioning itself to be a leader. Nice dividend is icing on the cake and the P/E looks reasonable especially considering the growth prospects going forward. It is a buy!
