Today begins with Martin Midstream ( MMLP), which provides marine transportation, terminaling, distribution and midstream logistical services for producers and suppliers of hydrocarbon products and byproducts. It has been rated a buy since June 2005. The company shows revenue growth, significantly increased net income growth and strong stock price performance. These positives outweigh concerns about Martin Midstream's somewhat disappointing return on equity.
Rated a buy since February 2006, Multi-Color Corp. ( LABL) supplies decorative label solutions and packaging services to consumer product and food and beverage companies, retailers and container manufacturers. It displays significantly increased net operating cash flow and notable stock price appreciation with good potential for further growth. The market expects EPS growth in Multi-Color's fiscal 2007. These strengths outweigh the company's subpar net income growth.
