Central Garden & Pet Company: Trading At Fair Value (NASDAQ:CENT)

Posted on

After an impressive run-up in price, shares in Central Garden & Pet Company (CENT) are taking a breather, retracing from their 52-week highs, and currently trading at $37.8 per share.

The company has benefited from the change in consumer behavior as restrictions were placed to combat the spread of COVID.

As it relates to CENT, the company’s Q3 was its best-performing quarter in its history driven by robust consumer demand. The company ended the quarter with $495M in cash and a leverage ratio of 2.4x, within management’s targeted range.
