Confident Investor comments: This is the first company in this Watch List refresh series that has stopped being a Good Company. At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in this stock as long as the price is correct. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good but there are some concerns. If you already have built up an investment in this company, you may want to consider holding it and not add anymore.
