I would be the "short" on this board if I still owned the stock. Unfortunately, I sold all of my stock when it got up to around $40, as I recall. I was uncertain about the legal fight and what NPK would eventually do with the cash. Fortunately, their investment in the military business has been a big winner.
Not to worry about me though, I bought BRKB and have done very well. I continue to follow NPK because I respect its management and think that I may buy it again someday if the price goes down enough. I wish NPK, its management and its shareholders well. They are all class acts. Bravo!
