Guru Investment Theses on Graco Inc

Mairs & Power Growth Fund Comments on Graco Inc - May 22, 2015

With 53% of its sales overseas and all of its costs in dollars, at year end Graco (GGG) told investors the stronger dollar will present a headwind in its ability to grow earnings in 2015. We like the company. It holds a leading market position as an industrial supplier of pumps and coating equipment. It has an experienced and focused management team with a clear, positive and executable strategy. We view the stock as cheap so we are using the current weakness to add to our position.

Let’s take a closer look at a key valuation input, growth rates, and see if we can better determine how many birds are in the bush. Read more...
