Growth at a Reasonable Price Rarely Goes Out of Style

  • And with a solid valuation, the share price can move higher from both higher earnings growth and a higher valuation multiple as the company grows.

    One company exhibiting this growth now is Oxford Industries (OXM). Trading at less than 10 times earnings, and yielding about 2.5 percent, it sounds like a value play.

    But the apparel manufacturer and parent company for brands such as Tommy Bahamas is growing earnings and revenues by nearly 30 percent each. That’s well into growth territory, especially amid a slow economy.

    Action to take: Investors may like shares in the $100 range or on any drop lower as a long-term buy. The dividend yield is slightly above average compared to the overall market, and has a history of recent growth. The S&P 500 trades at over 20 times earnings, suggesting that shares are undervalued by around 50 percent on an earnings basis alone.
