    mynextnegative post


    Ok, here is a negative post. I just recieved my package from the board of fdo so I can vote and look at their accounting info. It is large and I am sure expensive. I have held this stock since the were 8 dollars a share. They they did the split thingy, grew, blah, etc. Way back then all the expensive report and board voting crap, was sheet of paper. The fewest and cheapest paper they could find in the wallmart dumpster. This was back when they expertly remerchandized their stores to cy coping dollar general. very smart. I loved it. They are now big time, have made me a ton of money, but I still do not want to see money wasted on a flashy annual report. Just the facts, mam. Maybe walmart wised up and put a padlock on that free paper. Made money from fdo? Like I said, paid 8 then split now is in the 50s. I did sell 600 shares at 40 several years ago to buy some GE. Yeah, I know, dumb. I still have much more than that. Not dumb.
