Made an outperform pick on 6/6/2011 with a current start price adjusted for dividends of $13.39
A steady dividend at that, currently at a 3% annual yield. A payout ratio of 39% seems very sustainable.
Anyway, using;
http://wiki.fool.com/The_Graham_Number
Formula: Fair value=Sqrt(22.5*EPS*BV) I expanded it a little by also using EPS Normalized and Tangible BV
My current Graham Number Valuation Range for HWCC: $9.56 to $10.95
I'm into the negative with this one, but they're a well run company. With a steady divi and any market rally may get me back into positive points yet again.
Plus it's a Jason Moser TMFJMo's Real-Money Stock Picks portfolio pick. :-)

Banking on a recovery in the economy during the time frame. Meanwhile a nice steady dividend payer.

As the economy continues to improve, that HWCC will also grow is clear.

New 52 week low, ~9% inside ownership, recent insider buying (circa 8/12/10), pretty decent FCF generation and manageable debt, and a well-covered 3.5% dividend at these levels. If/as the economy slows, HWCC will continue to be hit hard, but they have great management (increased bk value/share from $0.04 in 2001 to $4.66 in the TTM) to weather through these headwinds and provide integral products and services to America's aging energy/electrical infrastructure. A boring and predictable business. Of concern and worth monitoring, though, are declining margins, ROE, and ROIC.

This is an infrastructure business and my prediction is that there are wires and cables throughout this country that do not meet the new standards of recently installed and to-be-installed new grid policy as the foundation of enery distribtion is brought on in our economy. There is a trackrecord of time in the industry and the same motivators and/or motivators have a stake in the company. Costly infastructure improvements with not be decided overnight, but these companies realize that they want to particpate when the surge comes - and it will come.

I've been watching this one for awhile. HWCC acts as a middleman providing specialty wire to electrical customers. The company also offers privately branded products. I believe this to be a boring yet predicatable business, the perfect compliment to some of the other stuff in my Caps portfolio. I value HWCC at around $28 per share yielding a near 40% safety net. Recent weakness in the stock has made a good buy that much better.

Testing out a portfolio of smallish-cap 5-star stocks found using the CAPS screener. All picks have at least 50 allstars backing them, which should be enough to minimize star rating fluctuations. It's only been about a week, and I expect a LOT of volatility, but I have high hopes for market beating performance. Time will tell...
