    About four posts down you will see that I predicted a 70 pps in the next 8 months. Well, I believe it just might come a bit sooner. To all of those that took my advice over the years and are still holding, congratulations!!!!

    This may not be a popular post for many however I've been with pfg since I received 141 shares free when they went public in 2001. I was given the shares by pfg, as well as other individuals that purchased life insurance and other investments with pfg as a show of thanks. The free shares varied based on the length of time and amount of investment with them prior to going public. Based on that I've followed the stock ever since and have seen a starting share price in the low to mid twenties and a high as much as mid seventies. In 2009 I believe, during the crash, it dropped to a mere 6.43 per share from a previous high of 70 something. It's always ranged in the 49 to 60 dollar range over the course of its existence. I missed the boat when it went to 6.43 in 2009 and purchased as many as I could averaging down chasing it from 20 to 10. I simply, like many, ran out of cash. That being the case I never, ever lost hope or worried I made a mistake. Sure enough within about 4 to five years it saw it's old glory days of 70 plus yet again. I was hoping, this collapsing market would allow me to conduct unfinished business, another chance to purchase this stock below 15 or 20 per share. I'm ready this time with 50k. I've been chasing it down from 40 with conservative buys. Waiting for my moment and benefiting from the scare. If you're thinking about this stock, getting in below 40 is a very sound investment. Below 30 and you're stealing it. This company is solid as a rock, humble and located in the heart of America, Iowa, run by conservative hard working individuals many family related or lifetime employees. Dont be afraid to invest in a stock with a solid past and bright future. I'm literally biting at the bit to pull the trigger on the biggest one time purchase of my life. Good luck to all

    During the pandemic we saw share prices drop to the twenty three dollar range and rise consistently from there. As of this post 18 months later we are enjoying a sixty three dollar p.p.s. today and the dividends are just the icing on the cake. With a p.p.s. of over forty dollars since the low of twenty three and dividends that are unseen by similar investments everything I've said about this stock has been spot on and I hope those that followed my advice are enjoying their gains. Glta.....

    Just three years ago this stock was over 70 per share.. not long ago, when you go long. If it continues to drop due to this unforeseeable virus and financial uncertainty for the near future my purchasing will start at 40 conservatively. Goes into the 30 range my purchasing will become moderate. Its goes into the 20 range ill by moderately high. Its goes to 10 and im selling the farm and anything else for the most aggressive purchasing campaign of my life. If you think this trend downward could never happen let me remind you of 2009 when it hit a low of 6.48 per share. I couldn't acquire cash fast enough to purchase what would have made me a millionaire 3 times over. I've waited 12 long years for another opportunity and this time I'm prepared. At the present price it is still a sound investment and my dividend is always reinvested. However if it continues to go south im going to pounce on this stock with such aggression this board has never seen.

    Still up 14% on the month, it can go down 5% for all I care. Still a good company to me, that is at a good p/e ratio, and pays a good dividend and is undervalued by dcf and other valuation methods.

    with capital gains like this, a %4 dividend yield, and only PE ratio of around 11, this might be my favorite stock in my portfolio.

    i will take my 7.5% yield or higher and wait it out. Strong company. Low interest rate environment. Buy the dips.

    When it recently dropped to 38 I picked up 50 more shares thinking I would continue to chase it down purchasing even more. Instead ill have to settle for the 5 dollar a share gain cause I don't think we will see this stock in the 30 dollar range any time soon.

    After months of playing catch up I just bailed on my position with a small gain. I'll be waiting for new entry point of $42.
