On CAPS, 96% of the 170 members who have rated Meadowbrook believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
[Meadowbrook] was crushed in the end of January but still has a strong outlook of $1-1.2 EPS in 2012. Dropped down to a forward P/E of 9 and a 5 year PEG around 1. Maintains a manageable debt position and a nice dividend around 2%. Largely an unsexy pick but paired with revenue growth and a few strong quarters of earnings I believe Meadowbrook could bounce back to $12-13 within a year.
