Disney -- I really wanted to nominate this one, but I couldn't. The gross margins are really low and they carry a tremendous amount of debt. Both of these features could make things difficult if the company started to struggle a bit.

Schering-Plough -- To be honest, their numbers are probably the best of all the medical companies nominated. I always have trouble with this one because I don't have faith in the depth of their product pipeline.

Dell -- Another one with great numbers. But, again the low gross margins and the competitive nature of their business scared me away a bit. I think that these factors require this one to be watched a little more closely than the typical CK.

Okay, that's it. I'm anxious to hear from Tom, Al and Rob as well as the rest of you. I'm not 100% sold on all 5 of my finalists. Let me know why I should replace any of them with another candidate.
