05:55 EDTFAST, FASTFastenal is headed for a solid year, Barron's reports
Hardware distributor Fastenal (FAST) was hard-hit by the recession, but the past two months have shown encouraging signs of a pickup. Known for its strong management and steady growth, Fastenal seems headed for a solid year as the economy rebounds. The company's solid balance sheet is another big plus. The company has $195M, or $1.32 a share, in cash and no debt. It pays a dividend that currently produces a 1.7% yield. Over the past five years, Fastenal has spent $250M to add stores and technology, expand its product line and establish a presence in China, Singapore and Malaysia. Despite the U.S. economy's ongoing struggles, the company's CEO Will Oberton sounds confident. Analysts think the stock, now at $47, could hit $54-$57 in a year. Reference Link

Credit Suisse noted that Fastenal's February sales growth of 8.6% missed the firm's estimate of about 12% and confirm fears that January weakness was more than just an anomaly. The firm think's Fastenal's slowdown is greater than anticipated by the market despite expectations for the month being low and believes that a large part of Fastenal's marginal growth in 2014 came from oil and gas driven areas. Credit Suisse has a Neutral rating and $51 price target on Fastenal shares.
