I think if you'll check the peer groups they use on their annual proxy statements the last few years some of the group seems to change yearly. How convient to drop some high performers and maybe add some low performers. The list in my earlier post was not my list, but the list from the WSJ. I would think the WSJ wouldn't favor one of the group over another. They would be neutral on the subject including what kind of financial they are and where they are located.
However, I am still wondering what the answers are to my earlier post questions which follows. My point is what is there that would make one believe that they are doing anything different now then they have be doing the last five years. Put buntly they seem to be doing the same things they have for the last five years. So is the return on this investment going to be what the economy gives us for the next few years? What is different about the situation for the next few years other then the economic condition ?
Yours for better investing and more money in the shareholders pocket.
