I haven't really been active in recent years... Another stock that has been successful for me is gpc, they are a parts supplier for automotive stores.

When i was in the military, some of the guys would ask me what to invest in. I had no problem telling them what i bought. However, i would never discuss the number of shares that either i had, or how many they could afford. I wanted to keep the $$ private, as that can be a sensitive issue for some people.
