PDCO: August 25, 2016 they will be reporting their Q1 for 2017.

Looking at their last 3 years they have earnings growth that has been quite steady.

Also their Revenue has been growing at nearly 10%.

Their Cash flow has be moving steady at a slow rate, but at least it hasn't dropped from any recent events.

Slow and steady works for them. They had a recent low of 44/sh, but perhaps at 47 they will continue to grow. Perhaps worth looking into.
