Keep it in the family


80% owned by the Sonnenberg family, Hunter Douglas (HDUGF) receives little attention from analysts.  It’s a fast growing window coverings company that grew earnings by 30% last year and paid a dividend of 2.7%.  With housing markets recovering and the acquisition of Levelor in July still feeding through, revenues are expected to grow further.  With a decent dividend, growth and possible future margin expansion the current valuation with a PE of 11.8 looks very appealing.
