Is it a good company at a reasonable price? This company has good growth, but with ratios on the high side. For example, the 10 year P/AEPS low , median, and high ratios are ratios are 17.05, 24.48 and 30.01 when generally speaking a P/E Ratio of 20.00 is considered high. On the other hand, fast growing companies tend to have higher ratios, but growth seems to be slowing. The current price seems to be in a reasonable range. However, I doubt if future investors will do as well as people who bought 10 and 15 years ago.

I do not own this stock of Savaria Corporation (TSX-SIS, OTC-SISXF). I got this stock off the Dividend Blogger site that no longer exists. I am always interested in dividend growth small cap stock. The first few years of accounting were rather confusing, but I think I figured them out in the end.
