I cant disagree. My point though was that if G is still directing the herd, his conservatism, formulated during his youth during the depression, may be what keeps WHC looking mighty bland when compared to the internet stock wildfires. This may not be bad in the long run; conservative attitude is what takes you long and helps you survive. Ive been lucky over the last three years with WHC. First bought at 19 and sold at 28. Now bought at 15+ and am up and waiting. WHC is nerve racking though when compared to my genetic and high tech stocks but my feeling is that when things are desperate we will be safe in WHC.
