I have owned this stock since early 80's through ESP and 401K. I own about $250,000 in the company and have been selling $7 to 14M a year for the last 10 years. Healthy dividends and splits have made it the best investment I have. The stock remaining shows 282% capital gain. I believe the returns are achieved through organic growth and more recently strategic acquisitions. I continue to believe the company is a strong long term investment. Increases in value easily exceed the $7-14M(2.3-5.6%) I have been pulling.
