It looks like I might have bought this one just in the nick of time. They just increased their dividend 4.3% (not a huge increase but bigger than inflation). Additionally, "3M authorized a $7 billion 2-yr stock buyback plan. Soleil Securities upped MMM to Buy from Hold with an $86 tgt. Deutsche Bank upped 3M to $90 from $87."
Well that's my good news for the day.
