I found this failed my first question: (P/FCF)/my estimated future growth rate. I took FCF from Reuters as 22.9 and MEFGR I put in at 9% after a look at Yahoo last 5 years. Would you use different figures?

I think it's very, very tough to nail down FCF figures for a small company like this. I think your 9% figure is as good as any, though.

But with roughly half the business tied in some way to housing and construction, well, a lot of your estimate must take that into consideration. How do you see housing over the next five years? If that turns sooner rather than later, LSB's earnings could really take off.

I just have a very low level of confidence in any growth predictions right now, and am buying what I consider to be a great business at a good price and am holding for the long term.

P/Sales = 1
P/ LTM EPS = 11.2
P/NTM EPS = 9.2
