Tootsie Roll: Once Again, The Good News Is Priced In

I think Tootsie Roll is a wonderful business for a host of reasons. It's a steady cash flow generator with a very solid balance sheet. My history with this stock offers further evidence that our returns are a function of the price paid for a given stock. The price is currently not attractive. Just because I don't want to buy now, I'm willing to own the stock at a 20% discount to the current price. Therefore, I think short puts make sense here.

Tootsie Roll's Valuation Is Far From Sweet

While Tootsie Roll has a short float of 10.04%, it is unlikely to experience the sort of short squeeze that the stock got in January. It is a Dividend King with a 54-year streak, and has a strong balance sheet that ensures this streak will continue. Low growth prospects, a puny dividend yield, and a 35% premium to fair value do not make this a buy at present.
