    Jim Koch is a selling

    Roper gets plenty more options and knows they will be in the money down the road. This happens every year, it's their year end "cash bonus". You need money to pay for really nice things and these guys don't like debt, based on the balance sheet.

    This has been going on for so long it's crazy. The small float, yearly options, class B control and buyback whenever they need it, has made this the best ATM ever.

    As long as you buy and hold you reap the reward. Especially if you buy on the occasional short term opportunity, created by a "miss" caused by advertising or cap ex timing.

    Unfortunately I sold a few shares over a decade ago, but thankfully never made that mistake again. Though finally with SAM shares in an IRA, it could be time to play with a few shares in the sell high and buy after a miss game. When will the next miss be? Followed by a couple of blow outs of course:)

    This has been so easy for so long and Angry Orchard is pretty good insurance right now too.

    Thanks Jim and Marty!

    Yes cb you should have! There is always next year with this one. It's not likely to change all of the sudden, unless Jimbo decides to sell and that isn't bad either.

    cb, we all know where it's headed over time. As long as the new options keep pricing, they need to be in the money down the road. These guys are mega rich playing this game and keep getting options. Wonder which way it's headed:) Do you think anyone would pay a premium for Angry Orchard and Sam? It is amazing how long Jimbo and Marty have been doing this. The question is when does Jimbo decide it's time to sell? I bet he wants to decide to who, instead of letting someone else after he is gone.

    Yep! We have seen this same situation for the last 10-20 years.

    SAM is at $260 though:)
