I love the product. Dr. Pepper is my favorite soft drink. But look back five years....this stock is trading at its all-time tops. Not much room for growth IMO.
When to sell?...Almost never...http://books.google.com/books?id=AKwWNQjLQQ4C&pg=PA90&lpg=PA90&dq=Philip+fisher+%22when+to+sell%22&source=bl&ots=8tnU2SxuYW&sig=hAP-DmsL1bKlZIiro_jbxSQWOaU&hl=en&ei=WMKZS6PWFpLesgPg0JigCw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CAYQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=&f=falseGreat book,Beavis
Don't think I will sell this one got in at the middle 20's and going to hold,collect the dividend and watch this sucker keep growing...love it.
I hear you.Time to think about some option hedging strategies, only thing is volatility is low.
The product is the product. It will get some growth through exposure at Mickey D's.The company on the other hand is getting better. $900 from Pepsi and a payment still to come from Coke. Expect a better Balance Sheet and a larger divi.
That is a pretty dumb statement considering the company isn't even two years old.
