I believe the stockholder proposel telling the
board to consider selling the company should be
supported and the board as well as management should
listen.I have been a share holder since the early 80's and
am still waiting for bobe's value to be
recognised.After all we shareholders don't have the options
management and the directors have
Besides Cheryl Krueger, Howard J Berry did a
trade in March 98involving 15,603 shares for a cash
gain of $177, 406 . While this is not a lot of money
to a corp. this size it does seem to happen
routinely at option time. I realize that this is a way of
compensating bd. members for a job well done,, however BOBE's
profits have not been all that great. BOBE operates a
great restuarant, and I wouldn't change a thing in the
day by day operation however I have some concern
about some of the management policies at the bd level.

You better look out the window, the guys in the
white suits, driving the little blue bus,are looking
for you to take you back to the funny farm.. That is
not Bob Evans funny farm either. Please don't answer
this post, because I have more important things to do,
rather than post to a nut like you. If you had a large
amount of money in this company you would not be making
what you think are jokes, on this post board.
The hog price closed yesterday $43.10 up $1.30.
By the way where is Bob Evans ? Is he still down on
the farm? He is not making sausage any more and it
sure tastes like it too. He used to make good sauSAGE
with a lot more sage in it. Sage has a lot of healing
power in it.
If you saw Bob as you stated in post #592 why are
you asking who in the heck this guy is????And was
there EVER a Bob Evans ...well YOU were the one who
said you saw him....does he exist???? Anyway lets keep
this board on the subject of Bobe stock!!! Thanks you
I did see a KFC ad with the animated colonel.
Didn't look like the Colonel in advertising from back in
the late 60's early 70's (now I've dated
KFC is one "restaurant" chain where the image of the
founder is prominently featured, but even that has been
downplayed recently until the Pillsburgy doughboy version.
Other "restaurant" is Wendy's where Dave Thomas is
featured in advertising but that is pretty tongue in cheek
Chickemmen: What are your thoughts concerning
future earnings? $15 to $20 sows this quarter vs. $35 to
$40 last quarter would appear to herald significant
earnings in the food group. How do you think this will
impact stock price?
I'll bet Colonel Sanders would roll in his grave
if he saw what KFC is doing with HIS
charechature(sp?) lately, too! The guy looks like a cross between
the Colonel & Santa Clause...with a stupid laughing,
regarding BOBE, I saw the new
commercials about the grocery store items...sausage and bread
items....very nice commercial, nicely done! I could almost
smell the cinnamon rolls!
I've always felt that
resturant commercials should focus on the food...this
commercial did a very good job of that!
company is already aware of the grocery stores that DON'T
carry their products and perhaps this will help
convince them! (after all, such a commercial is free
advertising for the stores that carry Bob's
Looking for better days ahead!
asking whether there ever was a Bob Evans as the
chickemmen in message 592 who claims to have just talked to
What is the fixation with Bob's
picture? I don't recall pictures of Wendy in Dave Thomas'
restaurant chain or Ray Kroc either. I don't recall fixating
on pictures in Marie Calendar's either. Should I
also be looking for pictures of the Denney family,
Perkin family, Shoney family, or Carrow family too?
I only see one option exercised by a director,
Cheryl Krueger, almost three months ago, and it was only
for 5,000 shares. Do you consider that a lot? Doesn't
seem like it to me. I do think some of them should own
more stock, however.
