Thank you for your input. Needed to hear some validation from others. I think that this is a good long term hold, definitely.

That is what I am shooting for-a twenty year horizon in a "none sexy stock" I appreciate the heads up on the diversification that you informed me about. I tend to go with DRIPS that have more that one pot so to speak.

I, when I decided to go with this stock made my decision based on the company stars given it for continuing dividend upgrade, a wide group of customers it supplies and well known ones at that, the fact that it deals in energy saving measures for large customer complexes (which I see at being more of a concern in the future) and car parts. Cars are not going anywhere (all pun intended). I also noticed that it did not tank during the Sept 11 crisis, before during the tech wreck, nor now, when consumer spending seems to be tapering downward but has proven a steady, reliable stock.

That is what I want. Steady and reliable.
