Due to popular demand I wanted to start clean here. Fanboyz who do not want to ack. legitimate cons will ult. pay the price in a lower share price if they/mngmt. will not respond to issues
Now lets get buzy shall we? btw, this is all in my humble opinoin. Did everyoen ge tthat? just my opinion. ok just my opinion, alright, did you ge tthat? lol
yearly fee- 'free' money and makes the whole thing work for gosh sakes lol
large store concept lower prices on bulk and other items works. people love lower prices
store comps continue to show growth albeit slowing
model obvoiously works, esp. in good times econmy
annual fee and new higher annual fee a turn off for some woudl be customers
some peole 'cheat' and are able to share cards or jus tgive a list to 3rd party, etc.
QUALITY OF SOME ITEMS IS #$%$ IM MY OPINION ONLY. did you catch that jsut my opinion!
management seems 'out ot lunhc' when it comes to managing. this has been evidenced in a myriad of ways (more later
continued growth at same levels will be a challenge as growth of larger and larger base becomes unsustainable in long run.
shopping wholesale discount can sometimes feel a bit 'icky' for the more well to so. Oh yeah more well to so folks knwo what I mean. 'Nuff said.
Ok folks, there is a starting point. Pleae feel free to add your won. we do NOT need every particular and every detail in the world. What I am trying to do is get us focused on this simple question: if costco a good stock buy investment at these levels? Why or why not. If ther are issue why are they not being addressed. What woudl make costco really great? What woudl slowly but surely make it poorer.
In the end I am more than shocked at the negative experiences I have had and talked about prevously. Also I am trying to understand what kind of buyer buys precooked food and some other idtemns that sux , inWoudl anyone like to put up a defencse for costco? If not, why not?
So two people give thumbs down but are too afraid or just palin dum dum to actually give an argument? What a joke! Lookit, if costco does nto get its act together with regard to the issues I have mentioned the stock price will suffer. no way around it! ALL IN MY HUMBLE OPINION!!
