Even if you win the rat race, you are still a rat or shall I say "Cricket". Now that you know your place in the world, what did you do with Mr. LuPune? I bet you abducted him because we got no forecast from him this time. He has just disappreared and got me worried.
As far as TXT goes, my dad says its the absolute last chance to load it up. He says we may get another chance durinh holiday light volume time but this is it before the last uncertainty of elections is over and the economy rolls.
If you are overjoyed about the drop in stock price of TXT, its well deserved. Business is clearly down at Textron System which is expected with winding down the war. Cessna sales are uncertain or soft and that is the main concern just when it started to show some ray of hope. The only star was Bell Helicopter, that with its 20% growth, is carrying Textron. When you miss by 3 cents, there is bound to be a short-term reaction to the downside but with yearly earnings guidance revise up, hopefully this drop witll be short lived. Someone remarked a few months ago that this is a relatively poorly run company with lot of deadwood, clueless management, antiquated processes but probably not uncommon for a large indusrial or aerospace company. This too shall pass and the brighter outlook that economy is showing may help TXT, hopefully soon. I only have 1000 shares that I have no plans of selling for next couple of years until it hits 60.
