Wow! Not much interest in the Fool Community in this one. Not sure why though, because Scotts is THE market leader in a growing segment. I especially like their long range growth prospects with the lawn service since TruGreen holds a very strong market share but low customer satisfaction. International business can only go up as well.

In response to edacloserboy's post- The stock did not tank in February after the $8 special dividend...the market simply responded the way that it should. After $8 per share is paid out, the company's value should be that much less. I was personally happy to pocket that dividend and continue to hold the stock for the future of SMG should be bright!
