Sherwin-Williams (SHW) is a terrific company with all the growth and consistency characteristics that I prefer. Historically the company has grown at double-digit above-average rates. However, since coming out of the Great Recession the company’s earnings growth rate has accelerated significantly. Consequently, Sherwin-Williams has been trading at uncharacteristically higher valuations than normal since 2013. On the other hand, this higher valuation has been justified because of its higher growth. The real question is can Sherwin-Williams continue growing at these high rates in the future?
