If you love growth, you may well like Cognex (NASDAQ:CGNX). If you like growth at a reasonable valuation, this will be a more frustrating story for you. Cognex has established itself as a high-quality leader in the machine vision and product ID space, and high-quality companies deserve premiums, but the Street seems to be baking in an exceptional amount of growth into today's valuation.
I love the prospects for Cognex to introduce new products to expand its expecting opportunities, as well as its opportunities to leverage growth in areas like factory and warehouse automation, and I have little to complain about with respect to how management runs the business. If and when we get another of those market corrections that sweeps many babies out with the bathwater, this would definitely be a name to revisit.
