I disagree. Management is currently involved in a number of large investments and cost reduction efforts which take time and have hit the income statement. There is a very good chance that this will improve Sysco's long term competitive position which should improve Sysco's profitability. In business it is the long term oriented players that win. The short term competitors get run over. It is far better to have management make long term investments for Sysco benefit than to serve the interests of short term shareholders.
Do what I did. After holding this stock for over 7 yrs. and going nowhere, except for the dividend, I folded my tent and moved to ABV and BRFS. I had this stock for so long that I still check this board once in while. Is Douche-Miller still around?
