My one-hundredth-and-thirty-fourth YouTube video “Quick Pick Middleby” went up today. My Quick Pick this week is Middleby (MIDD), a manufacturer of restaurant equipment. I’ve been following the company for 20 years, during which time they’ve pursued basically the same slow and steady strategy of acquiring smaller players in their market area (where they are the largest player) and them using Middleby’s marketing leverage to grow sales at the acquisition. The stock took a hit on its recent announcement that it expects to feel the impacts of inflation and supply chain difficulties. It’s difficult to catch a falling knife, but I think this stock is a good buy long term and I am adding it back to my 50 Stocks Portfolio, which has a holding period of 5 plus years.
