My Grandmother (RIP), the most astute investor I ever met, bought this stock consistently many, many years ago. It was passed to my father, and now me. It is an amazing company that will never fail you.
When people ask me for the one stock I'd recommend over any other, it's WGOV.
By cutting benefits and replacing retiries and other company paid members with temp. employees, helps Woodward look like it is swimming. The new markets and new technology haven't caught up with each other yet. Investing in new markets is only part of Woodwards success right now, and hasn't matured yet.
