Confident Investor comments: Continuing the 4 part series analyzing Jim Cramer’s “Diamonds of the Dow” and once again I am not crazy about his pick. 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, in fact the company ranks as a Good company, but there are some concerns with the price of the stock.
