You're very welcome Bobva. I take your points regarding SODA's loss of sales, retail outlets, and shelf space. And as you correctly observe, one very good quarter does not a healthy company make. But as the wise men say, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." The Q1 results announced today was a very good step, but needs to be followed by many more. Best of luck to you as well.
amdjohnsmith - Anyone that knows the board knows that I have been here for years, and that I am not Seth. I have agreed and disagreed with Seth, but I have always appreciated his generous and valuable contribution to the board and the respectful way he has treated everyone, even to those (like yourself) who don't deserve it. Seth is a better man than me, as I have gone out of my way to call out those posters who spew hate and try to bully others into silence.
Besides that, if Seth were going to use an alias he would have used a clever one, like "John Smith." GLTA. - Jim
DrJohnLong - I learned long ago to pay special attention to your investing strategies. I literally can't look at a quote on AAPL without thinking how much more wealthy I'd be if I had followed your strong call on that stock. What you predicted for AAPL has come to pass in a way that many (myself included) thought was absolutely impossible. I remain thoroughly impressed with your trading acumen.
We haven't always agreed on SODA, the market, or politics, but one thing we can agree on: you are one hell of an investor. Kudos on the AAPL call, and thanks for generously sharing your current strategy. Have a great weekend my friend. - Jim
