Multi-Color produces labels for a variety of consumer products including liquid detergents, fabric softeners, food products, liquid cleaners, anti-freeze and chewing gum. " (11/10/2018)

LABL’s shares are trading at 9.4x our CY18 adj. EBITDA estimate, roughly in line with its three-year average multiple, which we think is reasonable and not inexpensive given the Company’s high leverage and inconsistent execution.
