If you are refering to the split personality that has conversations with himself. Highly doubtful. Just a sick individual that has been talking to his imaginary friend for years. Most legitimate CL posters got tired of it and went elsewhere a long time ago. Personally I own a big chunk of Colgate that I started buying in 1993.
Same JW I bought in 1997. Not sure I'll sell within the next 10 years. That'll be about the time I am liquidating to spend all my cash before I take the big dirt nap. If it happens before, well my wife will be happy anyhoo
I don't know to whom you refer, but I own a lot of CL. It has a good dividend, together with a long record of annual increases. What I like best about it, however, is that here is a major international investment (80% of its business is foreign) but has the protection of the American SEC regulations. This foreign investment is up from 75% just last year, in particulat because of its tremendous growth in China and Brazil. The financial picture of the balance sheet is oustanding as well (Valueline A++ rated and has been for many years).
Aren't you concerned that China and Brazil's economy are slowing down and companies with a significant presence in these countries are lowering their profit forecasts and their stock prices are dropping, e.g. McDonalds today ?
