Having completed my review, I'd decided to take a 1/3 position in Ennis. It adds some a nice value position to my otherwise mostly rather edgy and Rule Breaker style portfolio.

After a study of the various indicators, I came to the conclusion that the stock is conservatively valued by the market. With a -- possibly -- understated potential for more than 10% increase in earnings next year and a nice dividend to boot, I concluded the stock was a good investment for me at this time (Naturally, I'm not recommending it for others, as each of us has to do his/her own assessment.)

The positive Motley Fool Take posted by Rich Smith last June (http://www.fool.com/News/mft/2005/mft05061626.htm) and the strong analyst ratings, were the icing on the cake. I also like that only two analysts rated, which indicates that there is some chance that the market hasn't taken notice of this value yet -- but hopefully will do so now that I'm in.

Cheers,
Lippoldtskivich
