Well here it is the 20th, Kroger has announced earnings, and unless I missed it, they didn't announce that they bought Safeway. So much for that prediction. I love these predictions based of wild dreams and drug induce stupors. Let's now predict that Safeway will buy Kroger, makes as much sense as your prediction.
Announce SWY deal on the 19th huh, their earnings date? According to the Yahoo summary on Kroger, their earnings come out on the 20th. Anything I guess is possible but your prediction will more than likely go by the wayside, just like 99% of all the others, on these boards.
