chiport - you're absolutely right
Here's my nomination. Snooky from TV show Jersey Shore. You can find her on internet.
great qualifications - big melons and lots of experience with bananas
Just a suggestion. I doubt she could do worse than the bananahead at the top - and for sure she'd work for a lot less.
Alternate suggestion - Monica Lewinsky, Much more responsible individual. Has all above AND politically connected
What makes anyone think that Q4 will be any better than Q3?
Perhaps CQB will make up the difference in salad rinse profits?
Was the Asian business sold at a fair price?
When you take into account storm season disruptions, are Honduras and Guatemala competitive supply zones for bananas?
Stay tuned .......
Just curious, what do you suppose CQB should have done differently this quarter? Force EU to eat more bananas? Manipulate market prices so that margins would be stronger? Force Americans to eat more salad? Put e coli in store branded salads so that they would not compete? Bet the farm on foreign exchange hedges? You can't blame everything on one man.
Force EU to eat more bananas?
During the first 7 months this year Europeans eat 1% more bananas. They prefer cheap ACP bananas, which CQB can no more offer. Ivory Coast farm is sold and the Mozambique project is a disaster.
Manipulate market prices so that margins would be stronger?
Discounters prefer Colombian bananas, where CQB sold its production.
Force Americans to eat more salad?
American eat more local and not a bagged produce.
Put e coli in store branded salads so that they would not compete?
E Coli and salmonella is an American problem. Why?
Bet the farm on foreign exchange hedges?
Everybody is knowing that Bernanke is printing extra usd.
You can't blame everything on one man.
Lets make this perfectly clear. Aguirre has no idea how to run a company, never mind a produce company. He's a marketing guy (not very good I heard) for Tampons. There is no strategy, no current strategy at least. He's working off an old one when Kistinger was there. He spends all his time on TV rather then behind his desk. Workaholic??? Please.....
