    waldipup,
    Exactly. Well said. Waiting for a pullback is prudent.
    Thanks for your comment.

    Thanks for your comment. No doubt, waiting for a pullback is the way to go.

    Ben,
    I appreciate your comments. Waiting for a pullback does seem prudent. I do think the company is in a position to service it's debt.

    What a great question! I have not found book value to be a meaningful analytical tool. You may have a different experience...
    Book value is backward focused whereas new product introductions, increasing market share and expanding sales revenue is forward focused.
    Here is a good explanation from accounting tools.com:

    "The book value concept tends to undervalue (sometimes to a considerable extent) a number of assets. For example, the value of a brand, which has been built up through many years of marketing expenditures, may be the primary asset of a company, and yet not appear in the book value figure at all. Similarly, the value of in-house research and development activities could be very high, and yet this expenditure is charged straight to expense in most cases. These factors can yield a massive disparity between book value and market value."

    Thanks for your comments.

    KTOOMBS2, that has been my experience, too. 'Steady Growth and a dividend to boot'. I hope you are reinvesting the dividend back into the stock.
    Thanks for your comment. SE

    Excalibur5, good point, CLX does hold a relatively high long term debt load, but it has been serviceable by cash flow.

    WdjaxOn, you raise a good point in terms of owner equity. I like 'skin in the game', too. But each of the following competitors also have less than a half of one percent insider ownership: Procter & Gamble, Church and Dwight, Colegate-Palmolive...so I don't think Clorox is unusual.

    Tallguyz, you may be right....time will tell. For now, at least, growing earnings and increasing dividends and a positive sales story into the future look pretty good to me.
