    Dec 6, 2010 2:25 PM | about stocks: PLL

     As both the industrial economy and health care industry come out of the recession Pall Corp (NYSE:PLLshould be in both of their capital expenditure budgets They are a leading supplier of fine filters, principally made by the Company using its proprietary filter media, and other fluid clarification and separations equipment for the removal of solid, liquid and gaseous contaminants from a wide variety of liquids and gases. They serve customers in two distinct businesses: Health Care and Industrial. These businesses include the following major markets: BioPharmaceuticals and Medical and Aeropower and Fluid Processing.

    Wall Street analysts look for revenue growth of 6.00% this year and 5.90% next year but a lot of that will fall to the bottom line.  Earnings per share are expected to increase 16.50% this year, 13.80% next year and continue for 5 years at an annual rate of 11.65%.  These double digit EPS figures earned it 4 buy and 8 hold reports from the analysts for the brokers to push.

    The general investing public likes this stock too with the CAPS members on Motley Fools thinking the stock will beat the market by a vote of 125 to 19 in agreement with the All Stars vote of 44 to 6.  Fool notes that the last 11 articles about the stock by Wall Street columnists have been positive.
