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!

This is a small/mid cap high growth stock that should outperform the S&P during the bull market.

Strong fundamentals and poised for growth. Market leader in its field with a wide economic moat. This is a Buffett-like stock that represents real value.

This stock is included in the Morningstar "Dividend Portfolio," which I use as my core stock group. I highly suggest anyone interested in dividend income take a look at this grouping of quality income producing stocks.

GGG is trading at a 41% discount to its intrinsic value.

With the growth potential at 20% per year, this stock could look to push triple digits in the fairly near future.
