Yes, this stock has been rather surprising. I bought it thinking it would stay in the prior trading range of 8.5 to 9.5. However, it just keeps a steady upward pace that now has taken it to highs not seen since the 2nd quarter of 2011. You can't help but love a stock that increases it Divi and still flies under the radar.
I bought it and it went down. I bought more and it went down. I bought more and etc. until I have 3200 shares at a cost basis of $9.57. I kept it thru thick and thin because of the dividend. Over $3500.00 a year. And, finally, patience pays off. Again.
Bought ES and it went down. Bought more ES and etc. Afraid to buy more. Guess I'll just take my loss and move on.
