With a P/E ratio of 4.4, a price/book ratio of 0.86, a return on equity of 25% and a steady dividend of 3%, this looks like a undervalued stock.
When looking at the trailing P/E of 4.6, the EPS of 6 and an est.5 year growth rate of 20.4%, this stock is worth 4,6 x 6 x 1,204^5 = 69,8 in 5 years from now. When your looking for an annual return of 20%, this is your stock (69 / 2,5 = 27,6). Buy somewhere around 27 to 28 dollars.
