    Toro...THE yard machine stock!

    If you are looking for a public company that deals primarily in this type of machinery, try Toro, Inc. It's the "creme da la creme." Check the long charts. ;) nikki

      • The short answers are "Yes" and "Yes." Don't let the name fool you. "Toro!" Sounds Spanish, doesn't it? Well, it's a good, old tried-and-true blue American company, doing business since 1914. It is a member of the S&P Small Cap 600, with an ROA of 8% and an ROE of over 20%. There's $87 million in cash on the balance sheet and virtually no debt. The current P/E is only 13.5, and the dividend is .24 per share. There are only 24.2 million shares outstanding, and that includes a recent 2-for-1 stock split paid in April of this year. I'm interested in TSCO as a long-term investment. I see no advantage--at least for me--in trading in and out of stocks. And besides, I'm not that business savvy. But I would like to build a nice portfolio over time. Should I take the plunge in TSCO? ;) nikki
