On CAPS, 93% of the 341 members who have rated Energizer believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bulls, All-Star joryko, tapped Energizer as a solid bargain opportunity:

-Trading below its historical PE average (15-16) as it sits at 13 right now
-Forward PE is 11 and its 5 year PEG is just 1.1 ...
-Assuming an EPS of $5.50 to $6 and a slowly improving PE I believe [Energizer] should move up around $80-85 a share within a year or so

1-3 year greenthumb with the potential of becoming a long hold with its nice new dividend. Seems like a great opportunity to get in on a fairly recession proof stock.

If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Energizer may not be your top choice.
