Wow, a post that turned from a SPAM pump for some other stock into a ranting diatribe against something called "gliadin". Only on Yahoo!
Man, I saw all this RAD pumping on the FDO board. Get another pony. Go to charts, check their splits from 1990 to today. You will find splits of 3:2 more than you would have imagined, about every 2 or 3 years. Look at price now and when they last split. How long ago was that? Look it up. I have had FLO since early 1990s. It is amazing how boring stocks can appreciate with excellent management. Rad? RiteAidDrugstore. This post by micky is SPAM.
True but you're talking about the subset of educated folks eating healthier, low carb paleo. But the majority of folks are still eating bread, pasta, cookies, cakes, etc, and that trend is accelerating. You sound like the gold bugs who are #$%$ because gold prices are down but money printing is threw the roof. Just because you see a trend doesn't make it the reality of the investment situation now, which in FLO's case is that business will continue to boom.
Read or Google Wheat Belly. People are getting huge weight losses from simply not eating wheat, no bread, no pasta and no pizza. Children are no longer autistic, huge health improvements. Type 2 Diabetes is a huge growing problem. Dropping wheat means diabetes can be reversed. We will be hearing a lot more about this. Stay tuned.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Not so sure this is true, Chingford. I think the Celiac is pretty much the one that needs a gluten free diet. Some people with chronic pain are trying it, but I'd like to see some longitudinal studies for effectiveness before I would buy into it.
Most people who drink in moderation don't have a "beer belly". You can get a belly and visceral fat from overeating... then once you become fat I do believe a hormonal shirt begins and it becomes more difficult to lose the weight.
The whole gluten-free mantra for curing is blown out of proportion, imo. Now for people with Celiac's dz... well, it should be their way of life~ forever.
As far as FLO, I believe people generally buy a "trusted" name for freshness. WonderBread is synonymous with freshness. A smart move on Flowers' part to purchase it. jmho
People are eating less bread as they become aware of the poisonous effects of gliadin in modern wheat. Google Wheat Belly
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Normally this would be a problem: however, wheat prices have fallen over 33% in the last 52 weeks and other commodities used in production (natural gas) and packaging (plastics) are also low. They also just started to roll out the Wonder brands. Almost all commodity prices are lower which generally signals a long term economic boom as in the early 1950's and early 1980's. Flowers is in thew sweet spot.
