I bought clorox at $35/sh and bayry @ $21#$%$ the same time in 2003. Both stock have performed very well, and the bayer purchase was to diversify into European stock. CLX has paid a better dividend thru the years and has more than doubled, but, Bayer sold a materials division soon after my purchase and gave me back in cash about $9/sh because they did not have an ADR for it. They have since gone up to $120/sh but this in no way sheds bad light on Clorox which enjoys really good marketing and management. High on Clorox. And on the podium is the winner and runner up,,,,,,,,,,,,go clorox.
