Seeking Alpha: Parker-Hannifin: Good Company Meets Bad Markets

Parker-Hannifin (NYSE:PH) isn't a flawless company, but this leader in motion and process control has a pretty solid record of generating attractive full-cycle margins. What's more, the company is uncommonly diversified across its end-markets and generally eschews splashy moves in favor of just consistently doing a good job.

Unfortunately, Parker-Hannifin is caught up in a global butt-kicking of industrial equities and the company is facing a lot of demand weakness across its many markets. I believe that the company can generate long-term growth of over 3% and that the shares are probably too cheap today, but investors considering buying on this pullback have to have patience and a long-term vision to offset the near-term risks that weakness in oil/gas, off-road vehicles, and general manufacturing will get even worse before turning around.
