    long term investors

    First I am a buyer of selected stocks. I am a buy and hold for long term 10 + years. I look for high quality, with un-comprised management.

    I am interested in feedback from long term investors regarding Dover.
    1. Are you still investing in Dover
    2. Why? Dividends? Capital Appreciation or Both?
    3. How long have you invested in Dover?
    4. View of management positive, neutral, negative.
    5. If you had not previously invested in Dover would you start now?

    I am looking at adding Dover based on sustained dividend growth and long term capital appreciation. Interested in your overall opinion.

    • I have been holding DOV for about 25 years. It is a safe bet with reasonable growth expectation. Also, great bellweather stock for monitoring US economic cycles.

    • Ihave bought DOV twice. I made money the first time and am up again this time.
      When i sold last time I left 10 shares in the account just so I would remeberr to follow it.
      I bought it back a few months ago when it was in the mid 40's.
      I have a good til cancelled order in @60.
      I like this company and think I should do well again.
      Best of luck.

      • I bought DOV a month ago and happy I did. So far I am ahead and thinking adding some more. I believe DOV to be undervalued, not grossly so but enough to provide some added appreciation through the expansion of the price/earnings ratio (P/E). The P/E currently stands at 13.9 (trailing twelve month basis) while the historic average is closer to 17. It is my opinion this quality company deserves the premium valuation relative to the overall market due to its solid growth and excellent management.

        Combining the earnings growth along with the dividend and potential for P/E expansion, I believe we could see an annual average total return near 15% over the next few years. In this environment of slow economic growth that should be a market-beating return.
