Helen of Troy owns brands such as the housewares brand OXO International, Revlon and Dr. Scholl’s. A new activist hedge fund called Sachem Head Capital Management (strange name) and run by Scott Ferguson, who used to be at Pershing Square with Bill Ackman, is pushing claims that HELE trades at a significant discount to similar companies such as Spectrum Brands and Jarden. Sachem Head wants the company to legally move its headquarters to lower its tax rate, add leverage to buy back shares and/or pay a dividend and potentially sell or spinoff assets.

This actually began back in February and the stock has not done well since then. We'll see if the company listens to any of the suggestions.

Oh how boring it will be watching your money grow ever so slowly and steadily. Retire with Helen of Troy. Pert Plus will be in your shower forever.

Wide variety of well-known brands. Solid revenue gains with an increasingly strong balance sheet over the past three years. No dividend offering, but doesn't look to be going anywhere soon. As the economy hopefully continues to improve, so should sales figures as individual customers purchase more of these products.

The company has good earnings momentum, with surprises and estimate increases recently, but the price is down, providing a very attractive entry opportunity today.

value pick. HELE has a solid Z-Score of 4.6 and a P-Scale rating of 6 out of 9. The stock sells at 75% of book value and just 7 times multiple earnings. The company has a good balance sheet with over $100 million in cash. Management is cutting lower-margin gross-margin product lines; making drastic reductions in selling, general and administrative (SG&A) costs; and paying down debt. The retail environment will continue to be difficult, but the company is optimistic that it can grow sales modestly and boost margins going forward and continue to generate cash in 2008.

The company is churning out earnings and trading below their book value. they could easily buy back 20% of the outstanding shares per year from profits alone.

Challenging consumer discretionary environment. High resin prices have increased cost of goods sold substantially.

Mgmt says strongly considering share repurchase. I don’t think will happen. CEO, Gerry Rubin is paid out on 5-10% of company’s pre-tax income. History shows that they use cash to fund acquisitions to increase pre-tax income. Also shares traded near the 16$ pt last August – Sept 05, and little share repurchases. We are expecting GM compression going forward.

this stock is a hidden gem, I've owned it for years (started at $5.00). It's a progressive company and shareholder friendly.
