On the 20 year charts its below 2 standard deviations (-2.22) and has a RF of 1.77. It might not have gotten any notice because the return factor isn't more than 2.0.

And it has a 5.40% dividend yield. It seems safe, according to even the lowest analyst estimate at yahoo it should have an EPS of 1.30 (ending in May 2007 apparently?) which would cover the yearly dividend of 1.09. However the company didn't raise its dividend, first time that has happened in 30 years apparently so that might indicate a cut. And the newest earnings came in below expectations.

I guess the issue for me is the Due Diligence as usual. It seems the company is trying to change from a meat/commodity producer (it sold its fresh beef and pork processing) into selling packaged foods, so how does that change the business model which is reflected in the charts. Is the company no longer valid as a BMW company because its selling off units and buying other companies? My intution says no but I can't be sure without more research...
