This company has only been able to stay alive through buying it's competition. You can only take that strategy so far in this slow economy. That said, the only way they continue to be outperforming is to continue downsizing, closing offices (PA Office, OH Office) and underpaying staff. I expect that the market will catch up as consumption of goods continue to slow. This one is gonna go with oil costs. More R&D will be needed to become more green and compete.

POOR JOE HAS NO IDEA WHAT ROPER DOES. ROP BUYS HIGHLY PROFITABLE COMPANIES IN MANY AREAS AND USE THEIR EXTRAORDINARY CASH FLOW TO KEEP BUYING MORE. JUST LOOK AT THE 10 YEAR HISTORY TO SEE HOW WRONG POOR JOE IS
