My wife is newly employed with Sysco (SYY) - Get Report. Is the stock attractively priced, especially since she can buy it at a 25% bargain?-- Gee from Illinois

Jim Cramer

: I have been a long-time bull on this foodservice company, whose stock is within 2% of its 52-week low. The company did say in its quarterly report on May 1 that near-term profits will be affected by higher fuel costs. That said, I believe that Sysco is currently attractive to pick away at, especially at the employee-discounted price.

Just remember, for the sake of diversification, I believe that investors should have no more than 20% to 25% of their portfolio in one company -- especially if it's the one that signs your paycheck!
