5 min review (hint - you could do this too? A tease otherwise)

Current: $102.21
52 week: $143.68 to $101.82 (I always look; trading near yearly low; must be a reason for it)

BS
183m cash
5228m debt
just to get a feel

CF
2018 at 10.90 and 2.00 or 1b or so in proj FCF
always

Cap - 11.6b or EV near 16.6
1/16.6 or 6% (yes, know this is wrong but still useful)

EPS Proj
20-22 at 4.5% and 6%
2018 is for 2% top line and 6% bottom line

Margins
23% operating margin in 2010; low was 14.1% in 2007; proj was 21.2% in 2018

Nice dividend - but nearly 50% ratio to earnings

what are you seeing here?

Conclusion
boring top line
assume margins go higher - realistic?
dividend is nice but...
does buy shares
looks like a slow grower

Not sure why it is getting beat up but
July EPS down big
Oct EPS projected flat
not much here?
