Cintas Corp (CTAS-Q) is a corporate uniform service provider with a strong balance sheet and a recurring business model. The company has been consistently raising dividends and repurchasing shares, making it an attractive investment. However, trading at 35x Forward P/E while growth is only around 7% may not make it a screaming buy, but experts suggest averaging into the position over time and being more aggressive if valuation dips.

Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research

CTAS operates as a corporate uniform service provider, and is now trading at 35x times' Forward P/E. In the last five years, sales grew around 6% on average. The balance sheet is strong, with net debt of $2.5B. Net debt/EBITDA is currently at 1.1x. Based on consensus estimates, sales are expected to grow by 6%-8% on average over the next few years. The company has been consistently raising dividends and repurchasing shares over the last few years, which we like. Overall, a solid company with the recurring business model and shareholder-friendly policies, however, trading at 35x Forward P/E while growth is only around 7% does not seem to us as a screaming buy, but we would be comfortable averaging into the position over time, being more aggressive if valuation dips.

They report Wednesday. They dominate the market of cleaning uniforms for small/medium businesses. Of Cintas tell us their business is better than expected, then the Fed will hike more than 50 basis points.

Cintas Corp
Performed exceptionally well. Largest player in NA. Great recurring revenue, high profit margins, very strong free cashflow. Be wary of the valuation, north of 30x earnings. Watch, you'll get your chance of a pullback in this volatile market.

DON'T BUY
Cintas Corp
Have 1 million corporate customers. Cleaning is a stable business, but the worry is that CTAS trades at a very high PE given their growth, at 33x PE. Yes, they're defensive, but too pricey.

They report Thursday. He loved it when they merged with their largest competitor. He will listen to the conference call for the pace of their job creation amid this wide market gloom. They still have some business formation.

Their software helps outsourcing of mundane tasks for small businesses. This is a plus in today's lingering labour shortage where anything that replaces human labour is a tailwind.

They make small/medium-sized uniforms. He's worn them. Likes the stock. A recent merger gave CTAS a lot of firepower. Buy it and put it away.

They make work uniforms. If CTAS is doing well, then it indicates that small/medium businesses are holding up better than we thought.

PARTIAL SELL
Cintas Corp
Bought it in 2017 -- time for profit? Industrial and officer uniform service provider along with other services. They have been very consistent and successful. It is very cyclical however. It is getting very rich with the PE ratio being double their level of growth. It might be time to layer in some stops or sell half a position.

TOP PICK
