I've owned the duck for a year or so, when it dropped I bought 100 shares, now I have 104.5 shares with dividends reinvested :o) A lot of investors sell on news, earnings were strong and guidance is good with reinvestments leading to less exposure on the European front. They are impacted by the yen's value, but this is a strong company, it is making money and it is a dividend king. I'm in today for another 99 shares and will rest easy knowing I own a strong brand name in my portfolio, at the top of their game.

I envy your free cash to throw at this company. When I see it shave $2.50 off the price in one day, I can only shake my head in disbelief and wish I had enough money to pick up more shares.
