Graco Expects Low-Single-Digit Core Revenue Growth in 2023; Maintaining Fair Value Estimate

Krzysztof Smalec Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Krzysztof Smalec |

Wide-moat-rated Graco finished 2022 on a strong note, as its fourth-quarter adjusted EPS of $0.74 beat our estimate by $0.07. Graco’s sales of roughly $555 million came in line with our expectations, though on stronger performance in the industrial and process segments but slower growth in contractor relative to our projections. We are maintaining our $73 fair value estimate as nothing in Graco’s fourth-quarter earnings release materially alters our long-term thesis.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
