James,

>>Jimmy Jr. was born on Thursday. Weighed in at 9 pounds, 11 ounces, 21 inches, with a P/E of 30. Mom is doing well. Dad is exhausted. This little guy may be responsible for a few pennies of Mattel and Disney earnings in the future, though so far Proctor & Gamble (Pampers) is the clear winner!<<

Congrats! Would you mind using Huggies once in awhile. Huggies are made with a "Velcro" strip that I believe to be superior to the PG Pampers. I own shares in VELCF. :-)

As a parent with a 6 month old, I can attest that the Huggies with the Velcro strip ARE SUPERIOR to any brand that just has the tape. I may have to look into VELCF.

Thanks for the endorsement.

VELCF is trading only slightly above my purchase price of a couple of months ago. I believe it remains a decent value. There are few new applications for Velcro. Diapers seem to be a growing category so I'm happy to hear that you agree with me about the superiority of Huggies (with VECLRO).

Wayne,

Do you have a good source for some historical financials on VELCF?

Art,

I have one of those 2 page S&P sheets with summary information for the last decade, a similar Value Line report, and the last 2 years' annual reports. I got the annual reports by asking the company for them.
603) 669-4880 or

velcro.com!!! They're an internet company?! <g> Buy Buy Buy!!!

I just had an image flash at me from my youth. The image is of David Letterman putting on his velcro suit, running and jumping on a trampoline, and bouncing up and sticking onto a velcro wall... Those were the days. <g>

That was one of the promising new applications of Velcro that made me so bullish on the stock. :-)
