    When something breaks at the factory, and the VP is breathing down your neck, you dont care if its slightly cheaper somewhere else, you call and see if the branch has it and get in the truck and drive to Grainger. By the way larger customers can get the rep to give special quotes. Amazon and others dont offer the engineering data that the Grainger catalog and website do. Perhaps Amazon can crush them on a 60 mfd capacitor, but see if Amazon has a 5 hp 460 volt 3 phase Delta TEFC 900 rpm continous duty electric motor in stock which can ship from a distribution warehouse today.
    PS: I still think they may be acquired by Berkshire Hathaway or Amazon. If you dont understand what I wrote above, then you have no experience doing industrial purchasing and dont truly undertand their value proposition.

    Grainger gave $100 million to University of Illinois and got naming rights to Engineering Department. How wonderful! How long do you think it took them to recover those funds? See latest news to find out.

    They lowered guidance before and now they raise guidance. Are they taking a cue from other companies who lower guidance one quarter in order for management to get shares on the cheap then have an “unexpected” beat and increase guidance where they dump, wash, rinse, repeat?

    Earnings beat should rise this morning. But long term laggard.

    Analyst Actions: RBC Capital Lifts W.W. Grainger PT to $240 From $230; Maintains Underperform Rating

    ) price target to $240 from $230, while reiterating its underperform rating.

    According to the broker, the company's rebound hit another speed bump in 4Q18 with an operating miss, light 2019 guidance including sharply lower gross margins, slowing December sales, and costly digital investments needed just to keep up with the ecommerce market. "We expect volume outgrowth to continue to slow without the boost from price discounting. Factoring in these negatives and GWW's relatively elevated valuation supports our Underperform rating," said RBC.

    A lot of chatter about Amazon disrupting various business models. I believe Grainger and others will be able to combat this in the long haul. Where you going to go when you really need service?
