I still follow AAON and own a little. I believe it to be very well managed for the long term.

However, over half of its business is dependent on new sales, and while its market share is growing, it does not control its destiny as much as I like in *my* companies. If Wal-mart opens (just picking a number) 160 super centers next year instead of 200, then AAON just lost the chance to sell 40 units to no fault of its own. In general, I like to be the horse and not the cart, but AAON does make an excellent cart (to continue with this bad analogy).
