NEW YORK ( F.A.S.T. Graphs) -- In my most recent article, I detailed how Johnson & Johnson (JNJ - Get Report) was a "great company," but perhaps only a reasonable investment at that time. It's always important to underscore the difference between a great company and a great stock. With today's commentary, I'd like to follow a similar ideology.Jim Cramer recently called 3M (MMM - Get Report) terrific, without going into many details, on his fast-paced "Mad Money" show on CNBC. As you could glean from the headine, I definitely believe that 3M is a terrific company, so I would like to take a closer look at the stock.
