Has this become another DuPont board? Let's get this board back onto SMG topics, shall we? Any observations about SMG springtime sales this year? Has the cool wet spring along the east coast and hot dry weather out west affected sales? Seems to me that lawn care products were moving a bit slower in stores near my locale. TIA.
I suspect it will be about flat with last year due to last year's Derecho which put a huge dent in sales.
either way, any gain at all, even 1% will look pretty good. That said, the PE multiple on normalized earnings is looking pretty rich at the 18-20 range.
