For some reason I always keep coming back to Graco. That reason is quite simply management. They have managed to keep the balance sheet pristine through a horrific recession - particularly in homebuilding where their sprayers and paint products find a home. Through the global downturn they continuied to grow and now have just about enough cash on-hand (12/31/12) to wipe out their LT Debt.

Now that we are seeing renewed demand and increases in aggregate economic activity, they should see an acceleration in growth and fcf. I am looking for annual dividend increases or a share buyback program that continues to expand over time.

Buy this one and retire on it!
