Irene will retire within 2 or 3 years and would like to go out with a big legacy.
Monde has many great brands as we all know and companies such as Nestle or Unilever would salivate to own those brands. Both have deep pockets and could take on Monde. That's my opinion.
Maybe, but not until it shows signs of life. I think this will be a good hold stock for now. I'm not going to do anything with this stock for at least 1-2 years at which time we should see whether it is a growth stock or not. It has the business lines to be a big success. I'm sticking with KRFT also. I've held old Kraft stock since the Altria spinoff and it's been steady although I am disappointed in the past dividends as I would like to get 3.7-4.0 dividend.
