Adding Otter Tail to personal portfolio

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, October 31, 2008

As you’ll see from my “Idea of the Month” for October, also published today, I think Otter Tail is attractively valued and, though it’s in the midst of a terrible year, should be able to perform quite well in the next few years … and plus, they’ve got a nice little regulated utility at the core of their business that provides some stability and cash flow.

So I won’t go into further detail regarding why I purchased OTTR this week — suffice to say I now own some shares, and have an order in for a much lower price if they should happen to take another beating (though I’ll be watching for the earnings release to make sure there isn’t something to strike Halloween terror into my wee Gumshoe heart).  I picked up my shares between $22 and $23.

Have you tried it yet? Free and worthwhile...
Personal Capital is an advertiser with Stock Gumshoe, but Travis also uses it every day. He says: "They offer a great (and genuinely FREE) 'second opinion' for your financial plan, but what I love most is their automated financial dashboard -- it will look at all your assets and debts, tally up your asset allocation, project where you'll be at retirement, and help you do better." Their free tools are great -- try it out here today. --------------advertisement--------------
