Jeffrey Stacey presented his in-depth investment thesis on Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2016.
Polaris Industries is a manufacturer and marketer of on and off road vehicles including all-terrain vehicles(ATV’s), snowmobiles and motorcycles. The company also supplies associated parts, garments and accessories. Polaris has strong market share positions in all of its product categories and it generates industry leading returns on assets and invested capital. It has increased its dividend per share for 21 consecutive years while maintaining a conservative dividend payout ratio. Polaris has also retired approximately one third of its shares outstanding over the last 15 years through on ongoing share repurchase plan and it has recently increased its share repurchase authorization significantly. At current prices, the shares are attractively valued at 13.1 times earnings. The company should be able to continue growing its top and bottom line at double digit rates over the long term through continued organic growth and bolt on acquisitions.
