    Stock doing very well!!!

    Owned this stock since the late 90's. By far my best investment ever. My $1000 investment in JJSF stock in 1999 is now worth over $7000. And getting a nice dividend too. In spite of soaring commodities costs the stock is holding up very well. They often site the price of wheat as a key cost of sales (ingredient). Wheat is up about 70% year to year. They've also previously mentioned rising fuel costs as hurting margins. They must be hedging well. They are a very well run co.

    • The commodities price surge is worrisome. So is the spike in fuel. Competitor Lance (LNCE) has taken a 29% haircut on it's share price in the last few weeks. The commodity/fuel costs are hurting them too. You can only raise the prices of your products only so much to keep up with the rising
      costs of producing/shipping.
