I'd guess you don't or have never owned or run a business (with fiscal responsibility anyway)
I am not saying this to be insulting, but merely pointing out that the managment here, if you are a stock holder of COST is doing you and the company a huge favor for long term responsibility.
Let me ask you a question;
If you have a home Mtg. and you knew the interest rate was going to increase next year
( lets say 5%) would you refi before or after the increase ?
(Assume the cost to refi didn't exceed the amount saved over the next few years)
you completely miss my point. it may be a good move financially but it is 180 degrees opposite of the hypocrite founders promote to the masses. liberals love to tell others how to live but the rules never apply to them
