Manitowoc Leads Mid-Cap Ratings
Gas utility Energen (EGN) has been rated buy since May 2005. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance, impressive record of earnings-per-share growth, notable return on equity and expanding profit margins.
Although any stock can fall in a broad market decline, Energen should continue to move higher despite the fact it has already enjoyed a very nice gain over the past year.
Manpower (MAN) provides employment services in the United States, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. It has been rated buy since May 2005. The company's revenue growth has outpaced the industry average, and its debt-to-equity ratio is also beneath the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. Powered by strong earnings growth, its stock has outperformed the S&P 500 over the 12 months ended June 1, and should continue to move higher. It has demonstrated a pattern of positive EPS growth over the past two years. These strengths outweigh the company's low profit margins.
