    Held FAST since 1995. With splits and Re-Invest my CB is between $1.94 to $2.79 per share. Great company with projected earning @ $1.74 in 2024. Sellers will lose out !

    PF chart gives FAST target $88 with 20% upside potential!

    Looks like this morning’s disappointing earnings report will solidify below $50 for the rest of the summer at least...

    FAST has treated me well with the split, growth following the split, good yield, and looking forward to the special dividend this month. My holdings have increased 111% over my cost basis since my original purchase in 2014. Having accumulated more shares with the split and re-invested dividends I'll be selling half after the special dividend and only have 'house money' invested. Fortunately have a losing position in some inherited T stock to offset the gains. Merry Christmas and Happy Investing in 2021.

    ok folks, time to buy. I used $63,000 in an IRA account and Thurs bought $31,500 at 61.51 and since I'm using my 50/50 method, when it dropped again Fri I got $31,500 more at $61.10. I didnt think it would drop again but this is why I use 50% of my money one time and so if it does happen to drop again, I buy another set of shares. Most of the time it's starts back up but I've been doing this for years and have seen it drop even more once I buy. I'll hang on till 19th as this is earning date. But if it gets to 62.50 or above before then, I'll take my gains and wait for next dip.

    The stock has held up surprisingly well for the markets overreaction. I find this to be a bit of a surprise, this stock has definitely not been a Wall Street darling yet it only goes higher.

    As somebody who worked for a large American contracting company with a huge presence in both the US and Canada, I witnessed first hand that Fastenal was the go-to company for sourcing construction supplies.

    Worked here many years ago and man this place gave a new meaning to cheap, but can’t argue with the company as a stock holding

    If it wasn’t from Tax benefits FAST wouldn’t have beaten earnings, Therefore core business didn’t beat. This isn’t going to be enough for such a big company during a shaky earnings season to be. Sell off should be in the 5 to 10% range .

    buy puts going into earnings

    I can only hope for a steep drop in FAST over the next few days. The jump today came with twice the average volume, but closing off the high of the day. I think the price will sag tomorrow. Back to $65 next week?

    Huge short interest in FAST -- 12 days to cover. That is driving the stock price up today. Might keep going up for days as shorts cover after in-line earnings report.

    Margins DOWN yet again this earnings margins go so does the stock price...
  • D
    Yup, this is too high and shouldn't go up anymore, but that is why it goes up. If you are short, it will go higher. Shorts push things higher since institutions force them to cover. Like now. Was a mediocore earnings report that was already priced in in my opinion, but this did go down some with MSM, so investors are just getting their money back before it heads down with the market...if the market bubble ever goes down.

    Looking for this stock to rally on increased demand for industrial supplies in the wake of recent freeze damages.
