Otter Tail is investing all the time. Their buying up companies to make them more diversified. I like the stock because in all the years we've held on to Otter Tail, it's given us a lot of money. It's a solid company.We started with $300.00 dollars. We buy direct from Otter Tail. I like that way of investing.I alway buy to hold. It's my own Mutual Fund.OTTR is a keeper to me.
I thought you didn't like it.
Great bear pitch if we lived in bizarro world. Buying 'direct' via a 'DRIP' is the only thing that makes sense here. I used 'quotes' twice, now thrice.
Dear Bears! Am I to understand that even the bears like Otter Tail? If so, I guess I'd better hold on. I bought it a few days ago and have already lost a few dollars. Do any of you have a long term record with this company? Thanks!
I bought back in June of '09. I'm waiting for the new annual report, so I can better evaluate their financial picture, but it seems the air (wind?) is slowly coming out of this one. I score my individual stocks against the market, the same way CAPS does and OTTR peaked for me in late July (out performing the market by 22%). Since then, it has been a straight-line down-elevator to embarrassing under-performance (currently -8%). If their financial score isn't compelling, they're following GE (who I've unloaded, squeaking out a small profit, in spite of a long spell of bouncing around under the market performance line) to the block.I'm guessing that the 22% peak may have been largely the hype surrounding Bill Gates' big purchase of OTTR stock for his portfolio. Since then, it seems the market has been slowly trickling out of the room, in search of something with more sizzle.
