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
