Made an outperform pick on 07/06/10 at $78.78
Been up and down. Now recently down. Have kept the pick open 'cause I like following this company and the Dividend 5 Yr Growth Rate is 17.98%!

Now...

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 NPK: $80.20 to $81.64

Good company at a good price. I'm tempted to pick up a few shares. If I do I'll post it here.

Share price of $68.22 - $19 per share in net cash equals an effective stock price of 49.22 for a company that earned $6.98 per share last year. That's a P/E of 7.12 for a 10% per year grower. That's goofy.

More adult diaper products will be sold as the population ages, more ammunition as our psychotic corrupt government continues to invade more and more countries. And I love that this company is run by a woman...they have much more common sense and do what needs to be done rather than what props up their ego. Working in Silly-con Valley, I've seen company after company tank by being run by a male who reacts on ego.

super balance sheet, no leverage, continued strong cash flow, strong management, insider ownership.

a rebounding economy should enable it to capture more of the kitchen appliance market. the population continues to age and boomers will need more adult diapers not less but the company must work hard at rebuilding this sector's attractiveness. the need for ammunition for the military will always exist.

As military, a lot of the products (ammunition) are not what are the high expended items in Afghanistan and Iraq. NPK's items will be shot consistently year-over-year as part of standard training doctrine. The focus of defense cuts in the near-term are going to hit Overseas Contingency Operations funding, which main expenses are logistical support (approx $1MM per servicemember in Afghanistan), equipment procurement, and facility construction that has been so utilized by the military (my Marine Corps especially), large weapons system procurement (goodbye F-22, EFV, and F-35 delays), and personnel costs (both cutting the force and skyrocketing pay/benefit/retirement/medical expenses. Simulators are the biggest long-term threat but nothing replaces putting real rounds down range.

I cannot speak for the rest, but it seems to me that babies will consistently be desecrating diapers and consumer product sales will improve as the economy gets back on its feet.

I like this stock as a solid dividend payer with low future volitility.

Companies making inexpensive convenience items are going to have plenty of room to grow as globalization marches on.

Because Diapers and Defense are both likely to be growing markets as the baby boomers age and we continue to annoy folks in the Middle East.

10 Stocks to Buy in July
Because of its recent practice of paying a small regular dividend and a large special dividend, sites like Yahoo! Finance assign National Presto a 1% dividend yield. But its actual trailing yield is 8%!

I don't usually buy small caps but this dividend is too tasty to pass up.

With a P/E in the 10 range, strong divedend performance, no debit, strong cash flow. With that combined history and a low overall market sediment it's a good time to purchase on the low for the long term hold.
