I agree, the underlying base businesses have little growth. Constantly need a pipeline of mostly small niche companies to add. Most have extreme culture shock integrating. Smoke and mirrors, price increases and cost cuts are the base story, little actual innovation. Hard to like it when you know how the base businesses are actually run.

52 week highs & lows are so deceptive. It would be relevant if it was under $110 in the last year for an extended period of time, but newsflash, it wasn’t. There’s too much value here. By the time I was ready to fund my account over a 3 week period (I had other responsibilities at the time), those prices were long gone.

This is a great company for a long term hold.. buy it for the grandchildren and it’ll do very well. When you see a great company’s stock is a bit over valued,don’t wait ,it’s still a great company. Average your purchases by buying a set dollar amount per month.
