HSP blew away the consensus. Those people buying late in the day yesterday must have known something. What a phenomenal quarter for a much maligned company. Did not raise guidance for the full year, which is surprising considering this quarter. The CC will be interesting, because there was real sales growth. It wasn't just all expenses being pushed in to other quarters as that analyst who downgraded a couple weeks ago said.
The big question is, will they "sell on the news" or buy? My guess is they will buy because this beat by a huge margin. It was not within the margin of error. I'll get back to you on that by the end of the day.
Go HSP! Go Begley!
Speaking of Waco...
Former Federal Reserve Board Chairman Paul Volcker, a pillar of the Establishment with access to economic information beyond our reach, wrote recently: "Circumstances seem to me as dangerous and intractable as any I can remember. ... What really concerns me is that there seems to be so little willingness or capacity to do anything about it" (quoted in The Economist, April 16, p.12). Volcker chooses words carefully: "dangerous and intractable," "willingness or capacity." He's saying: The situation is probably beyond our powers to remedy.
You need to cruise through the Kiev canal. The Germans built it to accomodate their 14" guns dreadnaughts. The British Navy had told the Krauts they would not build 16" guns dreadnaughts, but then they did. The Germans couldn't any longer as the armor and heavier guns would not allow the Kiez canal to be used, too shallow. The Limey Navy ruled the seas thereafter, the German Navy was outgunned from the start of WW2 fer sherr.
Expect lots of rain! Kiki
We leave on 3 June for our cruise through the Baltic. Maybe, in the fall.I will let you know. I guess Persh leaves on Sun. so we will probably be gone when he gets back. Persh don't forget those little kids at the top of the hill in Kusadasi.
There are a couple of very beautiful timeshare resorts in Sedona - which would be my pick. However, I do believe some of the resorts here also have them as well. It depends on how you want to spend your time and what time of the year you are planning on coming out.
