what have you heard or is the rumor mill working
overtime...mr. schimberg will not be making an exit from the
scene anytime soon...findley will stay in europe until
overseas markets are stabilized and alm's talents lie in
the financial realm (check recent annual report...if
and when henry moves up and on, all bets would be on
skeeter...interesting theories you posted...
Stock is up almost $7 in a week and no one is
Note the large block trade 10 am 178,500
shares at 33 9/16. Also a nice chunk 100,000 shares at
$36. Both on upticks(buys). It looks like the
internets are coming back down to earth and investors are
investing in REAL companies this week!!!!!
come. The world is stabilizing, KO will not
increase conc. prices. Last Monday/Tuesday was a sign of
things to come. I just knew we would have a short(friend
wrbt) come on and post that they covered and made a
bunch of money. Well if it was true or not you will get
your chance again when CCE goes well in to the $40's
later this year......Good luck!!
Alm or Findley? Which one will be the next CEO?
Alm has stated in public that CCE will be the only
bottler of Coke products in N.A. I like his style, very
aggressive! I don't know much about Mr. Findley.
i've noticed at supermarket channel level price
increases on the non-bulk (under 24-can) inventory. three
months, i could buy 6 12-0z cns of KO for $.99. now its
up to $1.29. and i bet CCE tries to drive it to
$1.39 by summer to see if it sticks. schimberg has said
publicly that long-term price war would be devastating. it
looks like CCE has drawn line in sand (at least in my
area (ATL) and will firm up pricing to absorb higher
concentrate costs not to mention drive cash flow to offset
debt load driven by acquisitions. any thoughts?
Make a quick 30%. CCE WILL hit $41 or
this year. You can bank on it.
The big red
trucks have never been busier and
summer is still 2
Where are you putting your $$$$$$$?
