Confident Investor comments: This is the last of Cramer’s “Diamonds of the Dow” companies and this one is decent as well. 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.
