    Motley Fool

    How much faith should one put into the article Motley Fool just posted??
    In the article it states that they are comparing MTW to it's competitors & peers. " Still,it always pays to compare that figure with sector and industry peers and competitors, to see how your company stacks up"

    Here we go again, Analyst's are comparing MTW to companies that are in different fields. How are we MTW like Honeywell or United Tech. Honeywell & United Tech. produce support systems NOT cooling or heavy duty construction equiptment.
    The chart does compare MTW with TEX, which is fine.
    Why doesn't "The Motley Fool" compare MTW with CAT or ITW, everybody else does and they're wrong too.

    I wish these "so called" analysts would compare apples to apples and NOT apples to tennis balls. Granted they're both round, but that's it, just like MTW & (HON-UTX) are all industries, BUT THAT"S IT.
