    Thanks for your response. I Think TR is A great run company. With excessive cash,there just seems to be no smaller candy companies for them to buy.

    • Sorry for the multilple posting my e-mail flipped out while sending this so please read the last post.

    • For all of you who love Tootsie Roll (me included) here is why the stock is not widely followed by the street. The company
      is very very tight lipped about revealing anything about the company to Wall. St. analysts. They won't give any projections for
      revenue or earnings and won't break out profitability on certain products to the street. Because of this the street won't recommend
      the stock or provide earnings estimates bacause they aren't provided the information to do so. I respect Tootsie for doing this
      this way cause because they don't feel Wall ST. should be given any more info than the individual investor. Here is why you
      should love Tootsie

      Net profit margins approaching 16% which is incredible for this industry. Some of the strongest sales increases in the industry and the lowest pe in the group even with the big run the stock has had. And Wall.St. is now seeeing the potential they have to go international like Wrigley has done.

    • Just curious where you found TR's earnings announcement. I can't find it anywhere. Thanks alot.

    • Another 30%+ earnings increase. It just keeps getting better. I think we do need to understand where this 30% earnings
      growth is coming from. Because you cant have top line growth of 10-15% and earnings growth of 30% forever. I think this is the
      reason the stock sells for 25 times earnings instead of 30times earnings. Investors don't think it will last forever. I think the
      main reason, in addition to low packaging and ingrediants costs, is the fact that they are handling there growth by squeezing
      more production out of their existing plants. That's all I can figure. I'm not worried about it though. If earnings slow there
      would be a correction in the stock price and then earnings and stock price would resume growing at a slower rate. Doesn't look
      like that will happen anytime soon though ,so sit back and enjoy the ride.t

    • FYI- TR reported 4th quarter EPS of $.59 per share from year ago $.45 - 31% increase. Annual EPS grew from $1.99 in 1996 to $2.58 in 97-30% increase. 4th quarter sales were up 13% while annual sales were up 10%.

    • Just sittin' 'round
      Chompin' some down
      Tootsie do me fine
      Love 'em all the time

      Got lots of stock
      Cheap on the block
      Value Line always knocks
      Says its on the rocks

      No analysist follows
      Leavin' 'vestors in the hollows
      Just a few step up
      To capture this pup

      When my life's nearly over
      And my time has run out
      One thing's for certain
      "Tootsie" I'll shout!!!
