    Golf anyone (sorry route guys)???

    Nice of Lance to pay $5000 plus to sponser a day long golf tournament in North Dallas - Just ask Mr. Gene Russell... Lance is also paying for his airfare and hotel for two days -Meanwhile our district office gets bitched at for spending $250 on express mailings to our route reps for sales promotions that MUST be to them ASAP?

    Good grief - Where are their priorities???

    Oh and the Key Account Manager - Dan Aiken - for this area set this one up - and he's golden apparently!!

    This company makes me sick!

      I'm not sure why I bother, but here goes....

      When a lot of people are short, there is high negative sentiment. This means that most people who follow the stock are either out or short so the downside is limited - there are few left to sell. Conversely, any positive news at all will cause the stock to rise. A substanitial rise will force the shorts to "cover" their positions by buying stock. This can lead to big gains in the short term. In the same manner, when a lot of people have long options on a stock, the upside potential is limited and there is a lot of downside risk.

      I don't play any of those games, but it's pretty basic investing 101.

      Wall Street just loves people...

      Tit Bit...check with your broker...but, I don't think you can sell short in your 401K or other retirement accounts...so, who does that leave to play short and get your money? Kinda of a one sided affair; isn't it? Do you think that they feel guilty taking your retirement money?

      >>>Typically, a short sale involves the sale of a security at the current price which is settled with shares lent to the short seller by a third party. The seller makes the short sale on the assumption that the price of the security will go down. If this occurs, the short seller will purchase shares to lock in a profit, extinguish the short position and replace the shares previously borrowed.<<<

      How can that be good for any stock? But, don't worry, they will teach you...

      >>>Firms are required to report their short positions as of settlement on the 15th of each month. A compilation is published eight business days after.<<<

      Test, ask the firm that is handling your Lance stock if they have any shorts on Lance stock...:)))

      Also, ask your broker to do some research to see who is shorting this stock at an alarming increase...

    • "Astute as you are; why is the short shares growing at such a rate?:)"

      I don't have the slightest idea. But, high shorts is sometimes a very good sign for a stock.

    • >>>"don't try to use facts and logic it won't help."<<<

      Why is it that people don't want to talk facts...just belief's?

      If it right for some people to pay taxes and others don't?

      Yes, I see you're correct.

    • >>>Social Security as it is now structured is a giant Ponzi scheme and must be changed to survive in the long term.<<<

      What about doing away with the $90,000 ceiling...that in itself will solve most or all of the shortcoming??

      >>>You see, dividends represent the profits earned by a company that have already been taxed at the corporate rate and are then paid to the owners of the company (shareholders). They shouldn't be taxed at all a second time - the 15% rate was a compromise.<<<

      I see more than many people want me to see...how many times is ANY product taxed before you buy it and pay taxes again on it?:) The rich make their rules as they go...

      How much SS taxes do illegal mexicans pay when large company's hire this labor only to save money?? How much SS taxes are paid by the products we buy from China? Don't worry; the average Joe or Jane will wake up one day...

      Still like Lance's nice safe dividend although I do wish it would break up out of its trading range but I'll keep it.

    • You see, dividends represent the profits earned by a company that have already been taxed at the corporate rate and are then paid to the owners of the company (shareholders). They shouldn't be taxed at all a second time - the 15% rate was a compromise.

      Social Security as it is now structured is a giant Ponzi scheme and must be changed to survive in the long term.
