Lawyers are lining up for a mega lawsuit similar to the tobacco industry. It seems that drinking coke is hazzardus to your health. It is the major cause of tooth decay and one off the bigger causes for obesity. SELL KO!
I loved that quote . That was said durning the time that ko had spent 20 or 30 years defending itsself from the overzealous us attorney that was trying to shut them down in their early days . claiming ko was a drug and should be regulated by the government.
Another interesting story came out this week that French youth were into drinking Coke instead of wine because they liked the taste better and was not an old fogey drink like wine . This is especially noteworthy because France had fought Coke and actually brought criminal charges against a ko bottler in France over their (Coke) refusal to reveal the formula in the syrup. Billy Rose a newspaper writer and nightclub owner in NY City took up the cause wrote articles about the French action and refused to serve french wine in his club( I believe (21). The whole country took up the cause and soon the French Ambasador was seeking out Coke to settle the fray. The Rothchilds in France( big in wine and high in french government were trying to protect the wine industry . Now their children have turned to Coke . notbuffett Warren is on cnbc today from his stockholders meeting in Omaha.
Here's a quote some of you might like: "There will be trials and tribulations. Men will be sorely
vexed and their souls will be tried. . . There may be war. We can stand that. There may be revolutions. We will survive. Taxes may bear down to the breaking point. We can take it. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse may charge over the earth and back again--and Coca-Cola will remain." - Harrison Jones, KO executive, 1936.
Yea, sounds like a great idea. Sell all your KO stock, then when the price goes down next month and all of my optional cash pay- ment money is there I will get a lower price and own more stock. I also think CCE, Coca-Cola Enterprises is a very GOOD buy. That stock did a three for one stock split a year ago, and has now doubled. (ex. you owned 1 share @ $60, it then split to 3 shares for $20 a piece, and is now trading for around $40). Not too bad if you ask me. Got more ideas write back to me. 'Till then, keep buying KO or CCE, and we'll see ya later with lots of $$$$$$$$$$.
