Where did we go wrong on this one? I agreed with your analysis in '08 and loaded up. I'm now sporting a 50% loss! And it is getting worse by the week!

I'm tempted to dump it, but think it has been unfairly punished for taking on lots of debt with the Collotype acq.(a big change from their old strategy of buying small niche players). My opinion, unfortunately, is not helping LABL's share price. They are having no problem generating enough cash to pay down the debt, so why is it being punished so?

I think it will return to growth stock multiples someday, but meantime I suspect our money is better invested with firms growing profits and dividends consistently.

Thoughts?
