I am trying to do an SSG on HELE and the value line is last dated 1-9-98. There is no information from third quarter. I understand that the new info on 4th is coming out at the beginning of May. But with the info from the VL, HELE growth is only 10%. I am presenting this stock to my club tomorrow. Any ideas on where to get quarterly report from third quarter? When I go to that area on Yahoo, it says that the file has expired and is no longer available. I would really like to purchase HELE but we have a strict policy of 15% growth rates. Can anyone help?
There's lots of ways to compute EPS growth. I personally use this years and next years consensus estimates. I you click on RESEARCH in Yahoo, this years estimate is 0.76 and next is .98. That's an EPS growth of 29%.
from what i have read, hele is pegged at between 15 to 20 percent growth rate. the industry is not that fast in growth itself, but hele has a nich and supplements that with acquisitions.
i cant recall where i read this. im sure youll need a "source" and not just my word.
if you do a look up on warren buffet, one thing that recalls is a fund that uses some of his ideas. i think the fund is "green mountain". they own hele. you can see several write ups by the analyst or the fund manager.
he list some pro's and risk's of hele. i believe in one of the (first) articles, he list the company at 15 to 20 in growth. hope this helps
