Earlier this month, one of those Fools, All-Star mpagnotta, labeled Multi-Color as a solid growth selection:

This stock typically trades between [$23-$27] range. A pretty safe small cap that makes labels for products. I say "safe" because they provide labels for such reputable brands as [Miller Brewing], [Procter & Gamble], etc. Growing revenues, growing earnings, and a growing customer base will help this company outperform the S&P over the long run.
