    What's the EPS?

    I calculated $2.20, but it was a rough estimate based on the Cadbury Annual Report. Finding good info on this stock is hard, which means there's opportunity for a diligent investor. The other question for me is the ROE. If you look at Coke and Pepsi, they've got ROEs in the 30-35% range. If DPS can do the same and pays out 1/2 its earnings,, you've got a stock paying 5% and growing earnings 15%, for a total return of 20% annually. Not bad! Also, Latin American growth could be huge, since they don't sell in South America yet (or Asia). Lots of growth, great product, and a low valuation. A winning combination.

    Another winning combination is 7-Up and real sugar. Corn syrup isn't addictive. Dump the corn syrup and go with the real stuff. I can see the tag line now..

    "7-UP with real sugar... Sweet."
