I have no skin to put into MDT right now, but I did make an outperform CAPS pick. Looking foward to how it will affect my score.
It is definately on my radar and I know I'm gonna enjoy following the Un-portifolio.

Just looking at this chart;

They had a rocket ride up thru the 90's and remained relatively flat since 2000. You have to kind of ignore the blip of a crash in 2009 and the rough ride up to now. I would say that was all just freaking out of the market that affected everybody.
I feel as long as the price remains below $40 MDT is a screaming buy, and the 2.90% dividend yield is icing on the cake.

Another interesting thing is the insider ownership. In the past 6 months a total of 66,000 shares bought bringing a grand total of 885,510 shares held by insiders. It was the institutional selling that has abused the share price.
