Fastenal Insider buying by CEO. End ASAP, not cheap.

New industrial vending programs, controlled new store growth and disciplined expense controls will drive earnings growth over the next year.

Sell-off was over done. Looking for modest rebound.

I like the recent sharp decline in price on declining volume and the history of strong bounces from around this level. I also see a bounce in the industries it serves in the next quarter, but this is mostly an "oversold" play that I expect to pay off in a few weeks, and which I don't mind holding longer if it doesn't.

It got a little ahead of itself, but will continue to grow with the construction recovery.

The stock currently looks over valued but FAST will continue to be a long term win.

Not an exciting stock like an Apple or Google but kicks the market's behind for years and pays a nice little regular yield. This is a great, steady, no frills money maker.

298. Fastenal Co. (NASDAQ: FAST) is repping out new all-time highs like it's nobody's business. Sell. Do not think twice. The valuation here is so high that a small mis-step will result in lower prices. The chart is parabolic. Target: $30-$40. I'm betting CAPS points on this one coming back down to earth. Since when can you apply a P/E of 40+ to a company set to grow at less than 20%? Well, if your answer was: "In your dreams." You'd be right. Mark my words, Fastenal will fall below $40 in the next 5 years.
