MWI Veterinary Supply, Inc. (MWIV)

As I have discussed previously, I have had the good fortune to be recruited by Covestor to participate in their activities as a 'model' portfolio.  In fact a year-and-a-half ago, I set up my "Buy and Hold" model with a mix of investments. This year I set up a new model called "Healthcare" with an emphasis on health-related stocks.  If you are interested in Covestor, I would certainly encourage you to visit the site and learn about 'mirroring accounts'.  USA Today recently ran an article about social media and investing that you might find interesting.

I mention all of this because in my own search for new names and ideas for my healthcare model I came across MWI Veterinary Supply and purchased shares for my Healthcare Model.  Thus, I am a holder of this stock but I would like to share with you some of the things I like and some of my own questions about this investment.  I purchased MWIV shares on 12/16/10 at a price of $61.08.  MWIV closed at $62.99 on 12/17/10, up $1.70 or 2.77% on the day.

MWIV was recently reviewed by Zacks.com with a positive comment.  Motley Fool has also commented on this stock earlier this year.  In light of these comments and my own examination of the stock, I decided to pick up shares last week.  Let's take a closer look at this company.
