Confident Investor comments: This is the second of my 4 part series on Jim Cramer’s “Diamonds of the Dow” and I am a little more comfortable with this one. Not exactly a diamond but probably a pretty safe investment. 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.
