Good Management - Moving in the Right Direction
Has dominance in a number of area, and owns a HUGE array of brands of household & sporting goods including Spontex + Yankee Candle.Have near total dominance in the Angling sport by holding rights to top brands Abu Garcia, Shakespeare, Penn, Mitchell, Fenwick + Berkley. Also own Coleman outdoor gear + CampingGaz. They also own Breville household appliances (kettles & toasters, etc)
solid growth and wise acquisitions
This company is aggressively purchasing its own shares.
Simply outstanding lineup of products that are household,trusted names.Great execution.
All other factors aside I like that they are starting to bring jobs back to the USA. Exactly the kind of company we should be investing in.
like BGS but for consumer appliances/products - strong brands, benefits from cross marketing and distribution channels
20% of Assets are goodwill/intang, tangable book is negative. ROA is trending lower as earnings being driven by aquisition. High leverage, should be drag on future aquisition and earnings growth
This stock was chosen as a part of group of stocks based upon momentum and value.
GOOD CONSUMER BRANDS
Maker of many familiar brands. They will weather this economic storm over time. Many options available for growth and assets to 'spin off' if necessary. Long term view here.

Jarden is a comglomerate of household brand names such as Holmes,Bicycle cards, First-Alert,Sunbeam,Crock-Pot,Rawlings,Penn and Shakespeare, just to name a few. If you look around you home you'll find more than one of these brands there. Muliply that by a million households or so and you get a company who is positioned to do well in a year or two.
I work for the coleman segment.Bad weather hurt camping this year.They started upgrading to SAP inventory/data management software whcih caused some bumpes. The employees were working a ton of overtime before management had to do a temporary layoff (still paid benefits) when they realized they had too much inventory. According to management, we averaged around 70% on-time deliveries. They expect the SAP system to help us reach the mid 90% and help us better manage overtime pay. 96% was reached in november. High insider ownership, diversified portfolio of well managed companies, near it's 52 wk low. I get a 15% discount for working there. My only complaint is the higher than normal debt.
negative FCF, - Margins, Lots of debt, - Earnings growth. Whats to like?
top mutual fund holding within portoflios in my opinion are strong to have, this one should outperform (see other selections for stronger picks in my opinion)
Lots of brand names and recent acquisition expands portfolio...insider buying...I would prefer less leverage in a company but at current prices it looks worthy.
