LECO

Lincoln Electric...
What a great company! Run like no other and all they seem to do is grow and make more earnings.
They run under the concept of all supervisors are voted for by the other workers and your annual bonus will often times be equivalent to your annual salary. Perhaps proof that Communism can work hand in hand with Capitalism. JMO

I don't get it? Was that an attempt at humor?

Again, didn't bother to update, but dumped all this LECO on 6/23 around $85 and change. No one seemed to care.

Support here around $71.37 although I don't know if it'll drop that far. This really is a great company. Currently $72.78. I'm waiting, but probably should be buying here. A stop around $69 would probably be a good idea. JMO.

WOW! I took a flyer on the earnings report and bought a bunch yesterday in the $74 range. Opened today near $86, so I sold half. All in a days work.

Just to update, I bought back my whole position again at $79.71. May be a bit early (could pull back to around $75), but I really love this company! In my opinion, this is one of those stocks to hold for a lifetime. JMO.

I can't believe this stock has gotten so beaten up! I really think this stock is an incredible buy at these prices. Currently $36.42 and on the long term support line.
