On this day before Christmas I'd like to lift a glass full of thanks to the employees of Bard who have had a great year in their marketplace and in the "market". These girls and boys have put a spring in the step of many investors. A little something special under the tree seems in order.
Great job and I wish you all a great and restful Christmas holiday. Oh, yes, get to the office early on January 3 please. (Only kidding!)
