I doubt that they'll increase sales by snubbing the independents who currently sell their products predominately to professionals by attempting to grab shelf space at the big box retailers who cater to price conscience retail. JMO based on several visits to a BM dealer, a SHW store, and a Lowe's last summer to redo our deck. I bought stuff at all three locations. The BM products will have a tough time competing on price with the so called "Great Value" store brands at the big box retailers.
Ahhh. you fell for the sales pitch... Like many things---missed's brain comes to mind as an example--the original idea was sound: How quant terms of succession? Then of course, How game them? leading to "The game is the point, f*** the assets and succession" as best exaplified then and now by Icahn.
There's an amusing discussion of the trip in Barbarians at the Gate, which may be said to now live on as a so-called "meme", the poser Norsemen in CApital One ads.
Just as there are 2 sides to a trade, is America being "mortgaged"--or are the special people "liberating value"? Once you figure out that "value" is always assigned, you can get a handle on the game.
