Confident Investor comments: This is one of those companies that is probably a bit better than its rating. The company was doing much worse several years ago and that is affecting its rating dramatically. It quite likely should be a Fair company if it was not for its poor years that seem to pass. At this price and at this time, I do not think that a Confident Investor can confidently invest in this stock.
