    Reasons to buy MSM

    1. On quicken.com Robert Hagstrom's list of a very few recommended stocks vis "Buffetology" includes this one, with sound reasoning I won't repeat.
    2. Earnings growth last 12 mo vs next 12 is 47% while forward PE is less than half that. Over time PED ratios tend toward one, thus there is room to double and little room to go down, unless the expected earnings just don't show up.

    I have bought and intend to watch earnings and expectations. Once it has been out there in this range for awhile it will hit investors' scans of PE vs growth and then start to spiral upward.

    GRBG company they just cut a deal with is tiny and should spin upward soon as MSM sales start coming in.
