I'd be willing to buy into this whole improvement thing, but when a CEO doesn't like his company I don't either, that said the most recent filings are all buys but they are such small chunks all less than 100 shares, I feel like it's more smoke and mirrors than substance, when I see the CEO or a VP adding 500-1000 shares I'll start looking.

own in real life (bought once @ 28 in 2002 (?) and sold at 48. bought in again at 32 a few months ago).

... fantastic shareholder friendly company that has grown phenomenally, yet the fool, for whatever reason, tends to bash it.

here is my pitch - PDCO hits new 5 yr highs by this time next year, due to growth in their vet disposables. Why? because of the pet food scare! ... 20% in a year, write that down.
