    Dividend Yield

    I was using the price history from Yahoo, which actually puts the dividend reinvestment into the split-adjusted price. I mistakenly used that as the actual stock price. The actual stock price for Oct 1995 only adjusted for splits is above $10.

    Therefore the calculation yields a slightly smaller return, but still nice. The actual split and dividend-adjusted price from Oct 2nd, 1995 is 7.57. 18.4 (today's close) divided by that is still a nice 143% return. Better than the 80-90% return that the 6% CD would leave you with. Is it worth the extra risk? You be the judge.

    • As of Oct 11th you are now down to 129.8% gain in that same 10 year time frame, getting closer. Hopefully we don't go much lower (although my position is minimal right now), yet I believe the raw material cost effect isn't going to be good on the next quarters earnings.
      Yes I made my choice and mostly bailed a little while back.
      That is the question , what is going to happen in the short term future, asbestos legislation seems to be going nowhere, legislators need to wake up and help. We need a compromise for the sake of American industry.
      Sales should be good though. Make more, sell more, but make only a little more.
