Superior Uniform Group, Inc.

Whether it be Kroger, Costco, Taco Bell, Wal-Mart, Lowe's, or Walgreens, each employee is weating standardized apparel provided by Superior Uniform Group, Inc. (SGC). SGC manufactures and sells uniforms and other apparel for employees in the retail, medical, health, leisure, industrial, public safety, airline, and other fields. The company also has a promotional product segment which produces and sells corporate marketing-related products. A third segment - Remote Staffing - provides multilingual telemarketing and office support both to SGC segments and other corporations, but the Uniform Segment is by far the most important, accounting for 83% of sales. Orders for uniforms is sourced to manufacturers in places likek Pakistan, India, and Etthiopia, or from existing inventory in a robotic-equipped warehouse in Arkansas. Unlike competitors who rent uniforms, SGC just sells them. SGC's market share of the booming uniform apparel industry is only about 1.5% against competitors like Cintas, Unifirst, and Aramark. SGC's acquisition of BAMKO Inc., a promotional products company, has helped maintain sales even as pricing competition hurt recent performance in the uniform apparel industry.

This stock is definitely a "buy and hold" rather than a day-trading stock. In our review, it slipped by us on a daily average volume requirement, but its daily trading patterns on charts seem to reflect at least on certain days much larger trading volume stocks. One thing that jumped out at us is the financial condition of this company in relation to its major competitors, as it apears to have a much stronger balance sheet and fundamentals, a strong Zenith Index, and a somewhat "overlooked" status in our opinion. Institutions are net sellers, but Dimensional Fund Advisors (DFA) is chief among them, which is a definite "plus" in our opinion. DFA follows much the same stock-picking methods as do we, but with much larger research resources.

The uniform industry is highly concentrated with lots of potential mergers and fewer competitors than other industries, suggesting to us a bright future for all players.

Although many analysts and some research organizations have failed to include this smaller-cap stock in their analyses, those which did were sufficiently highly favorable, including Standard & Poor's, to give this stock a relatively high Decision Matrix score, suggesting a strong buy and hold recommendation. A strong, consistent progression of higher and higher annual earnings over the past five years suggests there may be few surprises with this stock in a relentless upward march. It has a very good website illustrating its products and services, although we did not like the absence of a CEO Letter to Shareholders or glitzy annual report and somewhat high turnover in management. While this suggests to us a lack of concern for shareholders, it is true that many if most listed stock corporations today favor the "conference call" over the "letter" and rely upon "presentations" to investment groups rather than colorful annual reports. Perhaps this corporation makes up for that somewhat with its colorful catalogs and a website perhaps more aimed at selling its products rather than attracting investors.

Channeling Potential

 
The summary below includes a value for `Degree,' which refers on a
scale of 1 to 10 the range of a channel in the period under consi-
deration compared to the total range of price movement. It also looks
for the last closing price to be within the channel, otherwise zeroed.
The `Index' is the `Degree' weighted for volatility.  Generally, the
the higher the index, the more suitable is the stock for trading as
a `rolling stock' between channel high and low points.

Neural Network Prediction

"Neurostock" can only track long trades. Therefore its performance, as tracked by itself on stocks which are consistently falling, may not appear as good as it could if each "sell" signal were a "short sale."
