Great track record of management. My top success. Why wouldn't it continue?

Steve Jobs wanted to do a few things, but do them extraordinarily well. It turned out that those things––iPods, Computers, iPads––were sexy. Middleby CEO Selim Bassoul––Tom G's favorite CEO Selim Bassou––thought exactly the same thing... but with ovens. And yet had you invested in "just" ovens you'd be alongside Monkey right now on a Banana float drinking barrels of whiskey. The lesson is easy: what you do, do well. What capital you have, allocate it wisely; whether it's ovens or iPads, a clear vision and a steady hand is worth much more––literally worth much more––than following whatever passes for fashion these days.

p.s. Good thing, I suppose, that humans can't just peel a banana, eat it, and be happy needing instead all sorts of fancy gizmos to cookify their meals. But if that's the way of the world, then nothing wrong with profiting from it.

Argh!!! I've had this in my portfolio for a couple of years and it's more than a double, but only realized today that it wasn't in CAPS! Drat.

Helping restaurants with better technology in food preparation. Also, getting into homes with the Viking brand will be big as the housing market rebounds.

Bought MIDD when recommended by Hidden Gems in late 2003 and didn't sell at $50 as advised by MF. The company just keeps growing and growing and seems very well managed.

People like to eat out and this way you do not have to pick a winner in the restaurant race, pick a restaurant supplier.

Tom Gardner has promoted this stock for years. Let's see if it beats the S&P 500 from here. This is speculative. I've done NO research on this stock at this point.

Strong growth in sales (719, 856, 1004 mil) & bottom line has similarly grown (75, 93, 125 mil). However, debt is also growing, albeit in a rather safe manner (209, 1.5, 258 mil).

2012 current assets standing at 413 mil with cash of 34.4 mil makes the debt looks manageable.

*(figures follows order: 2010, 2011, 2012)

Population is increasing, food consumption will increase, more restaurants, more ovens, higher revenues for Middleby
