May just be a coincidence, but these guys used to own the restaurant and hotel businesses. I've been doing my own informal survey over the last several weeks and the last nine places I've been to (five hotels, four restaurants) have been supplied by P&G, Diversey and Cintas. Looks like ECL has attracted some competition.
Your comment is ridiculous. Yes, the stock is down so far this year, but look at it over time. With dividends reinvested it averages +9% / year over the last 35 years. It hit its lo of $65 and has now covers to $77, will go to $85 probably this year.
