AmericanGreetings185 5 Stocks Mr. Burns Would OwnAs we mentioned before, American Greetings (NYSE:AM) — the greeting card company founded by a Polish immigrant in 1906 — has languished for a decade, fighting a losing battle to stay relevant in the digital age.

In the world of e-cards, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and LOLCats, the future ain’t exactly bright for printed-on-paper, delivered-by-snail-mail greeting cards.

AM’s sales have slumped 17% over the last decade, and though the stock has seen something of a renaissance in 2012, the company’s $17 share price is well off its halcyon $40-$50 days in 1998.
