IMHO we're drifting further and further in the
mud because of the year-end sell-off for tax reason.
Well, it ain't over till the fat lady sings. In the
mean time, for T'giving, let's stuff turkey with
banana, bake banana pie, drink banana cocktail, then ...
do it with banana.
Banana forever! Long
life to banana! Go banana, go!!!!!!
This hound could hit 7 by year end at this pace!
A lot of folks will probably stay on the sidelines
until Q4 earnings are released. Let's hope they get the
numbers out a little bit faster than last quarter.
All 3 of these hounds (DOL,CQB,FDP) have been
howling for quite some time. But if you are going to
compare stock perfomance, you need to use the same time
periods. Since FDP went public it is down 50% comapred to
DOL's -66% and CQB -75%. All stink!!! Problem for FDP
is that they are viewed as the #3 player by the
supermarket trade. FDP needs to make a public statement that
they care more about profits and shareholder value
than market share and CUT VOLUMES! Getting out of the
poultry business would be another positive.
Those two companies are at all time lows, DOL
went from $52 to $15.5, CQB is at $4, they both posted
losses vs. FDP profit in the third quarter, I don't see
you badgering them. We do have to thank you for not
using bad language or racism on this board as you had
before. Any constructive comments are welcomed wether
they be negative or positive. Banana prices are at an
all time low that is shown by the performance of all
banana companies, the management at FDP seem to be doing
one of the better jobs in the industry. As for youre
300 shares maybe you should have sold when FDP blew
away estimates and the stock moved to $22. But it is
still good to see that old stock holders are still
watching the company and its performance. Maybe if banana
prices turn around and start going up you can invest
another $5,000. I bought and am hoping one day I can make
Now I see I am not the only one who has been
badgered on this board.
I must agree that I am
sure there are more than just myself and fdp lost who
have negative views.
I got this shitty company
from my broker at Morgan Stanley who recommended it. I
wound up selling out at 12 after it was issued at 16. i
waslucky only got 300 shares and lost 25%.
bottom line is the market is at record highs and this
stock is down almost 50%.
first rule of finance
is to maximize shareholder value. If management
can't do that, then they don't belong.
delmonte should start firing at the top. Remember the fish
stinks from the head down.
By the way those who
followed my advice to buy sun microsystems and microsoft
are reaping huge rewards. sunw will split on
Keep up the good arguing here. it makes things
its good were talking to a rich man who has
nothing better to do than post on this board. keep up the
good work 'PUNK' . I hope I can be as wealthy as you
one day and be able to telll people I can buy and
deal with it...by the way, you have me all wrong.
not an ex employee and not a competitor. see prior
posts..it's an open forum for positive and negative posts. no
anger here. as for a job, i could buy and sell you,
punk. (is that personal enough for you)
fpd is making mistakes. i'm hear
voicing my opinions. hopefully that will keep other longs
from blindly listening to the bullshit that you are
putting out about your company. maybe they'll take a
little from me and a little from you and form an
intelligent opinion. gee, let's see, wasn't fdp flirting with
$20 not too long ago? if you think my words can bring
down the stock you really should be helping yourself
because you truely are lost.
get out there find a job and maybe you will be
happy. Letting youre anger out on this board is not the
answer. Many people lose their jobs I'm sure FDP had
their reasons to fire you, eventhough you think FDP
made a mistake. Don't take this personally but I am
here to help the lost. Try not to attack people
personally implying that they are employees, you might not
think so but their are people with money invested in
this company that are positive about it, and want to
see the stock appreciate. Then there is you who has
nothing better to do except be negative and scare people
, why? to bring down the stock or to let out youre
anger towards this company for some reason.
