Given that this leadership team has only been in place for 3 years or so -- what specifically do you see as their failures in terms of the abysmal long term stock performance (which I agree is sad)? The prior 2 years have been the best on record and this one is shaping up to be a good one from the perspective of EBITDA. Yet, the stock price has been flat for 15 years. Will the market recognize consistent, solid earnings? Only if they remain consistent and solid!
What overpriced acquisitions and poor risk management do you refer to -- as there have been no (significant) acquisitions since IBP in 2001 which was the JT era well before the current leadership team took over, and risk management hasn't been mentioned as a problem in CCs or analysts' reports?
What food company's stock has performed better in the past five years; why? Compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of the companies and describe why the others are better long term plays.
the underperformers are spending most the cashflow year in year out yet the shareholders NEVER see any stock appreciation.
Give the money to the shareholders so they can spend it. just keep it out of these idiots hands.
And today again is further proof that the market does not believe in this companies management. The stock has had absolutely no upward momentum whatssover. I am getting out as I am even after months in this stock. Worse than yhoo as far as stock appreciation and value. Can not beleive that a food company sucks this bad in this market.
