Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (NYSE:KKD) is the company behind the namesake doughnuts. They’re not healthy. We know that. However, folks seem to be partaking in more of these fried indulgences. Wall Street’s holding out for 7% revenue growth, and profitability is supposed to grow at an even headier clip.
Finally we have Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL). The provider of fluid management solutions doesn’t just keep its fiscal performance flowing. Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL) shareholders have been treated to nine dividend increases over the past nine years. Analysts see the filtration specialist earning $0.73 a share — well ahead of the $0.61 it posted a year earlier — on flattish revenue growth.
Cross those fingers, but know the fundamentals
Investors in these five stocks have a right to be excited. They’re all improving their financial situations. They’re worthy of the gains that the market rally has bestowed upon them over the past year.
I wouldn’t be uncomfortable owning any of these companies. They’re doing the right thing, regardless of Mr. Market’s mood swings. The expectations may be high, but these five stocks wouldn’t have it any other way.
