LONDON (MarketWatch) -- Piper Jaffray upgraded Fastenal Co. (FAST), a provider of threaded fastener, to outperform from market perform, saying store-level productivity improvements should drive strong earnings growth and healthy returns on capital. In addition, following a recent visit to the company's operation in Shanghai, the broker said it believes there exists a significant sourcing and revenue opportunity for the firm there. Piper concluded that these two factors, coupled with a stable macroeconomic backdrop, will result in valuation multiple expansion.

My bottom line hasn't changed and that is this stock is a keeper. Simply, buy on the dips and hang on. Long term we will all do very, very well.

Hello All,

Lurking here, elsewhere and gaining interest in charts. I'm considering a long term entry point. Some seem convinced this might be a bottom in housing. I'm not entirely convinced.

Are housing and "construction and automotive" connected?

At this point, what would anyone define as a "dip?"
