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.

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...

somewhat of a bottom fishing stock... these shares will reach their previous $30 range as the market continues to rebound (may still be a little ways off)
still at a great value, with a company of proven steady growth in their industry... p/e: 11!!!
