Confident Investor comments: 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. I am leaving this company on my Watch List since it barely missed a Good company rating. Also, my list is very low on industrials and I am hesitant to cut one at this time.
