On April 14, 1998, the Boring Portfolio saddled up to the bar and bought
the equivalent of an ice water -- yes, this company is that boring. And that's
good! The Borefolio purchased 100 shares of Pentair Inc (NYSE: PNR),
a diversified manufacturer of professional tools and equipment, water and
fluid technologies, and electrical and electronic enclosures. How's that
for boring? We hope that it will actually be very good for the Bore Port.
