Three Dividend Stocks Worth Revisiting:

     First on our list is Matthews International (MATW). Matthews International was initially recommended on March 31, 2009 near the lows of the bear market. At the time, according to Dow Theory, we felt that the company had upside targets of $31, $40, and $49. On August 4, 2009, we issued a sell recommendation of MATW when it was trading at $31.95, a gain of 10% in four months. Subsequently, MATW was able to get within $0.50 of the $40 target. After hitting the $39 range, MATW has fallen to the current level of $32.50. MATW has increased the dividend for 14 consecutive years in a row.
     According to Value Line, MATW has a book value of $14.32. If we assume the lowest quarterly earnings during the worst of the economic crisis from Q4 2007 to Q1 2009 and project those earnings (the most conservative estimate) into the future, we get a Q1 2011 P/E ratio of 16.92. Value Line also considers MATW at fair valuation around $41.86 or 13 times cash flow per share. Using the most optimistic scenario according to Dow Theory, MATW is considered fairly valued at $35.77.
