We continue our search for companies that are high quality and are at least fairly valued, which hasn't been easy given how expensive the market has become. It has been particularly difficult to find reasonably valued companies

Very informative article. Great origin story, brands it owns and its the largest tool company in the world. Learned a bit. Thank you.

Based on the article the shares seem overvalued.
I've got my hand on the trigger for all those reasons you outlined. However, I've only watched this stock for 2 years during COVID. Is this cyclical stock capable (historically) of going into a DOW like downward spiral that never seems to recover ?

@Bad500 I’ve been in it to various degrees the past five years. It’s certainly a stock you can be long and trade along the way, holding your core. I sold some not too long ago and am buying it back and adding slowly. I want to save some powder in case it falls more. I’ve never been worried while in it. Sometimes it gets really undervalued, sometimes overvalued and occasionally fair value which is what I think it is here. I’m looking for 10-12% LT returns.
