Investopedia: Agilent Seeing Tougher Conditions, But Still A Quality Pick
When end-market conditions erode, there's not a lot that even the best
companies can do apart from hunker down, hold the line on costs and keep
building for the future. So although I'm sure that those traders and
investors who focus on the short term will think I'm nuts, I still
happen to think that Agilent (NYSE:A) is a quality company and that today's valuation is pretty appealing for long-term holders.
