      : Its funny that $ADM gets mentioned as well-I've been watching these two specifically on recent weakness...trying to iron our my entry points

                    Continue to add to $HSY. Not feeling all that comfortable with position sizing. May end up with a lot of it by time all is said and done.

                      : I've been loading up to the point where it's about 9% of my portfolio. It'll get interesting if it cracks $80 - then it'll be about 17%.

                      : I'll officially be (if I'm not already) one of those people whose portfolio I would look at and say, no, no, no, never be that overweight.

                              : SA contributor The Value Investor has a good PII article. I'll either keep it as a long-term position or trade out of it again.

                              : My reasons are 75% sales are in US, pays a dividend, cutting into HOG market share, good buyback history.

                                  : I would need a 3% yield to buy $HSY, though.
                                • SkipK | Send Message 13 Nov
                                  : Thanks seriouscat. I have funds to buy more HSY -- next stop coincidentally at the 3% mark.

                                          : agreed. most stocks are better buys at lower prices than higher ones.
