Pentair Ltd. (NYSE: PNR) was another pick for fluids and water as well as other valves. With shares around $48.25, this is very close to its 52-week high as the range in the last year has been $32.50 to $48.99. The consensus target on this is about $53.65, implying upside of roughly 11% expected. It also has a dividend yield of about 1.8%.

Pentair shut down several plants and have plans to do away with 6-9 more. They are shedding jobs in an effort to curb costs and boost profits, at the expense of customer service and manufacturing, leaving the customer in the lurch for product and repair. So, how do you sell your product when you have no one left to make it and no one to sell it and no one to take the phone call??? Their 'vertical market' change is old hat in the marketplace, yet they just discovered this new plan. Their hubris of 'Tier I' distribution only will undermine any profit margins, as they give up higher multipliers to entice top tier distribution to sign exclusive contracts they will never manage to honor because of the poor delivery and poor quality product. They just had another round of layoffs, after one in each of January and February. The remaining employees were forced to take a 10 percent paycut for at least 2 weeks, with the option to take a week's vacation to make up for it. (Can you say now you have one less week of severence pay we have to give you?) Now, they have slashed their company match for 401K.
This is a company in trouble, a company who is slashing anything they can to make the shareholder believe all is well. My opinion - they are ripe to be bought out, perfect for a takeover target. GE - do you see this???

"Before the housing slump took the shine off the shares of Pentair (PNR, news, msgs), this was a Wall Street favorite.

About 70% of sales come from water: pumps, control valves, storage tanks, filtration systems, and pool and spa accessories. With demand for clean water growing around the world, Pentair was among a small group of water pure plays that Wall Street loved. The price-to-sales ratio climbed to 1.94 and the price-to-book value ratio to 3.04." JIM JUBAK of MSN.

PNR now sports a 1.05 price to sales ratio, bargain prices. this is a long term growth story with global sales. PNR does not relie just on the US housing market.

They provide one of the basic needs that is becoming more critical in the future. Expect growth and profits to continue in the are of clean water supplies. (other basic needs are shelter, food, energy and security)
