Sam, despite the nay-sayers, you have plenty of company. I have waited also.
Agree. Despite the hype about the 3% return and buying by insiders, this stock is going nowhere. Unable to hold even the slightest of gains. Only hope is an increased dividend.
Puzzlingly, but maybe not, DHR price reaching 52-week highs despite the "exhorbitant goodwill number" mentioned above. I do remember that when DHR sells a business, it does get that goodwill money back in the selling price.
