+ Watch ROK
on My Watchlist
The Company is a global provider of industrial automation power, control and information products and services.
Dividend increase so foreign and/or safe keeping money will be flooding in.
Pop. Top 25 pick
Strong income growth over the last few years, and a strong balance sheet as well. Continual buybacks of stock along with their decent dividend yield make this a buy for me. Outperform might be a stretch, but something that should maintain or go up slightly.
Victim of indiscriminate sell off. Will benefit from Asian growth.
Entire industrial systems sector is significantly oversold.
Historically a solid performer in industrial automation. Supports sustaining and retooling manufacturing industries. This will continue to do well as US economy recovers.
This pick for me fits into the "buy what you know". Rockwell Automation continues to develop it's process automation business at the expense of it's competitors and appears to be winning. Also, investment by major US consumer product goods(CPG) companies in the BRIC countries paired with renewed capital investment in the US bodes well for ROK. Completion of their SAP integration should start to net some fruit in the coming years as well.
Clients' needs will be unsatiable for at least the next 24 months.
Fundamentals will catch up with this company eventually. Forward P/E 28.69
With the emergence of the global economy, this company is poised to become a market leader in industrial automation and control.

Pretty good bank, but I think the industry is trending down
Their headquarters has the world's largest four faced clock! (Don't know what that has to do with investing, but still...)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen-Bradley_Clock_Tower^The Proof^
This CAPS account is tracking the 200 highest yielding S&P stocks.
High margin business model, a lot of cash, dominant in the US but expanding globally, ripe for a buyout, market cap is currently about 1 times annual revenue
I smell a buyout. Really good profit margins, lots of cash on hand, near 52 week low, relatively small, and a proven brand all adds up to a takeover target to me. Even if not, the above rationale is enough for me to take a good look. This is a good buy.
There is a possible resistance level at 60 dollars, but over the past two years, the company has been pretty steadily valued in the 60-70 dollar range. There are nice little upticks forming in the last week or so as well, so this could easily reach 60 next week. Then we watch how it behaves at resistance.
ROK provides factory automation. That is always useful, and ROK's high ROA and ROE show it is competent. Sales growth is slow. Stock price varied a lot over the last 3 years, up and down with flat trend. Stock price is relatively low now, so it seems an auspicious time to buy. Long-term growth of your investment will be by reinvesting the 2.1% dividend. This is more effective in a tax-deferred account. The rest of the earnings are spent on capital equipment. Total equity has declined steadily for 10 years, however; so new needs for capital equipment apparently exceed absolute depreciation of existing capital equipment. So why doesn't total equity increase?First impression is that ROK is a bottomless pit for capital. Further study reveals the declining equity, but no explanation. ROK looks dangerous.
