I'll be excited when I see it climb new heights rather than old heights that it had previously given up.(Sheepishly) Especially when you consider that it was the old heights at which I entered. One can't expect a company like Carlisle to appreciate like an internut stock in the bull market. OTOH, one can expect Carlisle to show steady year over year improvements in the financials and to increase the dividend each year. So buying at the high might give you a low return, but it's unlikely to give you a negative return if you're patient enough to hang on.Personal regret: Sold a piece for a small profit around 40; had to pay for a roof.Personal joys: The lot I bought "on the dip" at 44 and change just before the Titan fiasco is above water again! And the lot I bought when 31 and change looked too cheap to resist is looking mighty fine right now. And yes, it hurt to see how much cheaper I could have bought that first lot.I don't think I'll ever understand why the price of such a steady company as Carlisle fluctuates so widely. I just try not to let my lack of comprehension get in the way of making a profit.Patzer
