Saw your post on FB.

As a contrarian, I figured this was a good day to buy it.

I had been looking for something like this. I like stocks that pay a dividend and are way below their 52-week high, as Newell was even before yesterday. I am glad I didn't see it a week ago, or I may have bought it before yesterday's drop.

One way that I look at it, from this point, which stock has a better chance to double-Newell or the Amazons, Facebooks (etc)?

I am not a day trader and I plan to keep it, but it would be fun to sell it today-up 8% since I bought it yesterday. 8% would be the equivalent of, what, 47 lifetimes of bank interest (LOL).

My commission is 2% of the gain. You can pay me in cheeseburgers should we ever get a chance to meet.

Gladly. Just a fun update on why I like companies like Newell.

It had earlier dropped from 52-week highs in the mid 50's to the low 30's. From that point, it had that nasty one-day 25% drop to $24 or so(when I bought it).

Yes, it can drop farther, but it is harder for it to-everthing bad is priced in. Even with the recent volatility, it did not drop much (if any) on those bad days.

As of right now, I have a gain of 19.34% in ten days (or however long it is).
