    Outstanding. I hope more details emerge on where sales did well, geographically.

    Expectations were high going into the quarter.

     

    Few things, currency issues (USD strength) caused them to guide #'s down for 2012 but what's interesting is that they beat by quite a bit but didnt up operating guidance. I have a feeling that #'s will go up after they report 2Q if it too is strong.

     

    They will likely do $5.40-5.50 per share at the 1Q pace. That would put dividends per share at about $0.86 per share per quarter.

     

    I would look to get long again in the low 80s

    how much did cashflow grow?

     

    what % of revenue growth was price increases?

     

    I have complained to company about doing aggressive buybacks at historically high multiples.

     

    These stocks seem to be getting a little pricey...MO PM KFT.
