Tesla gigafactory is a possible boost to this (no connection yet). Putting this stock on my radar for further inspection.

I no longer hold this stock in real-life. I am keeping it here, as I believe the stock still has potential at this time. The stock took a big hit from 2008 through 2010, but it has been rebounding since then.

The sales rose 12% last year, and the EPS has almost doubled since 2010. Their profit margin fluctuates, which is something I prefer not to see. But their earned-on-equity has almost doubled since 2010, and their debt is down by about 1/3rd, so both of those are going in the right direction. The P/E ratio is higher than recent history, but the PEG ratio is below 1, so the stock could be considered cheap here. The stock pays a good dividend, (5% last year), and it was raised significantly in 2012, so that bodes well for the future.

Due to the nice dividend, and decent recent growth, I am hoping this stock will return me about 17% per year over the next 5 years. That is why I am keeping this in my CAPS portfolio. We'll have to wait and see how that expectation pans out.
