    Desperate Attempt by Pepsi to stop stock

    Pepsi whose stock is in a free fall has come to
    the realization
    that they can't compete with KO in
    the U.S. and especially
    international basis. It
    order to stop the stocks free fall
    it actually
    showed its cards on how badly they are doing.
    From
    the market reaction today analyst were more upset
    with pepsi'
    admiting that they were getting their
    butt kicked (down 1 1/8)
    then from fear of the
    anti-trust for KO (down only a 1/4) and
    thats with the
    market down 78 points. For anyone who has read
    my
    previous long list of messages, one will note what a
    wonderful
    job KO is doing. If one wants to cry just read the
    depressed
    state of the Pepsi Shareholders on the PEP board. Over
    the
    next weeks you will get dozens of messages on
    this board from
    sharks trying to get you to panic
    and sell your shares. I just
    want you to know
    that if you do sell you will just be giving
    your
    money to those idiots. I have a firm rule on
    selling:
    "When Buffett Sells , Then I'll sell" . Pepsi is in a
    bad state
    of affairs. They have $4.5 Billion in
    cash and their
    management is to stupid to buy back
    any stock. They should
    have followed KO's formula
    and sell their bottlers. Are they
    doing that
    NO!!!!!!!!! This is a last desperate measure for
    PEPSI
    similiar to the Germans at the End of World War II
    when
    they drafted children to fight the Allies. I believe
    the same
    result will happen to Pepsi as happened
    to the Nazis. If the
    lawsuit does get more
    attention then it deserves, it will take
    ten years to
    resolve. By that time the Genius Ivestor will
    have it
    solved and your stock will be worth $400 a
    share.

    SO JUST KEEP THE FAITH FOR THE LONG TERM AND YOU
    WILL
    BE WELL REWARDED!!!!!!!!!!
