Investment Summary

An easy to understand enterprise that comes at an attractive valuation, Crown Crafts Inc (NASDAQ:CRWS) is cheap on free cashflows and the strength of its balance sheet. Having generated stable free cashflows in the last five years, I am highly convinced of company’s future free cash flow generation capabilities. If bought at the current market valuation of $ 76m, the free cashflow will enable you to get the investment back in ~ 11 years. The judgement is again on the sustainability of free cashflows which in my view are highly sustainable. The debt is low to non-existent which justifies my conviction that management is prudent and strong free cashflow generation is their priority. With $11m in net cash, essentially the equity is valued at $ 65m which in my view is cheap for such an enterprise. A stable, capex-light and little researched company, Crown Crafts Inc is a good company to add in the portfolio for the long run.

     We welcome host of Fox Business Network’s Making Money with Charles Payne to this year’s contest. When he’s not on air, the rags-to-riches financial guru is editing his free weekly newsletter, Charles Payne’s Smart Talk, as well as his new newsletter, Charles Payne’sSmart Investing, which allows individuals insights into picks that were formerly only available to institutions.

    Payne is going with the owner, operator and franchiser of a wildly popular sports and wings bar for this year’s pick: Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD).

    With commodities prices in the dumps, BWLD stands to benefit as Americans have more cash lining their pockets thanks to lower gas prices. That’s cash, Charles reasons, that Buffalo Wild Wings will be able to claim a chunk of. Not to mention the fact that if chicken prices remain subdued, it’ll mean a beefier bottom line.
