The only thing that ever consoles man for the stupid things he does is the praise he always gives himself for doing them.

-Oscar Wilde

Our play of choice is Parker Hannifin Corp. (NYSE:PH) and we like it for the following reasons:

  • A very sturdy levered free cash flow of $1.10 billion.
  • A great total return for the last three years of 206%.
  • An exceptional payout ratio of 21% and a five year average payout ratio of only 25%.
  • A 3 year dividend growth rate of 16.5%.
  • Paying dividend since 1949 and consecutive dividend increases for seven years.
  • A great interest coverage ratio of 15.27.
  • A decent quick and current ratio of 1.2 and 1.7 respectively.
  • Net income has more than doubled from $509 million in 2009 to $1049 million in 2011.
  • EBITDA has increased from $1.15 billion in 2009 to $1.85 billion in 2011.
  • Cash flow has surged from $5.40 in 2009 to $8.65 in 2011.
  • Annual EPS before NRI has increased from $5.61 in 2008 to $6.37 in 2011.
  • It sports a decent ROE of 10.34%.
  • A quarterly revenue growth rate of 8.4%.
  • A fine free cash flow yield of 8.7%.
  • A fine EPS growth rate of 12.23%.
  • 100K invested for 10 years would have grown to 273K; dividends were not reinvested if they were the rate of return would be much higher.

Conclusion

The markets are extremely overbought, and it would be prudent and wise for long-term investors to wait for a strong to decent pullback before committing large sums of money to this market. One might have to be patient, as markets tend to overshoot to the upside and downside nowadays. Investors looking for additional streams of income can sell covered calls and if you are bullish on the stock you can also sell naked puts.
