    SunOpta does in fact have a poison pill in place in the event of a possible takeover. Now addressing your suggestions of an economic recovery, I think the opposite is happening. Example:

    "This week's economic calendar brings a deluge of data, including a first-quarter GDP revision on Thursday, and personal income and spending, Chicago PMI and University of Michigan consumer sentiment on Friday.

    Of these, the most important will likely be the first-quarter GDP due on Thursday. The last estimate was for growth of 0.1%, while expectations for the revision are a -0.6% decline in growth for the first quarter. A decline here would be an unwelcome development, as two consecutive quarters of negative GDP is the official definition of recession."

    I think we are going to see an much longer recession, a stronger US dollar and a declining ability for the Federal Reserve to stimulate inflation and subsequently growth. That means SunOpta investors can depend on long-term growth or organic foods abut I think customers are increasingly becoming aware of the differences between "natural" that can mean anything and "organic" that has very strict standards. A second housing slide based on both weak refinancing and non-existent fresh mortgages could be just what the doctor ordered for over overextended market but it will have very bad effects on the labor market as homes and mortgages fold under again and a massive portfolio restructuring takes place in the markets. The US dollar is strong and that's going to hurt exports, earnings and any prospect of growth. The US economy just does not have the muscle to create robust growth; even on top of short-run oil and gas production.

    I think Kurtz sold a bunch down in the 7's. He was also against small investors who he suggested were supposedly not carrying the weight of the investment world. I like to focus on the fundamentals. That's what brings "a tidy profit" from "the ground up." Should be a good year for soybeans and sunflowers. A lot of positives in our arena now.

    Looking strong. Maybe too strong. I have a bunch of trades in the green so act on if and when I decide to. I remember Eric Kurtz selling off a bunch of his stock and being very aggressive and angry at other investors. I like my SunOpta stock. Great company.

    I think we are probably valued pretty good here. Management needs to pull of more of these quarters but this is quite splendid really.

    Sentiment: Buy

    The ruling on GMO corn by a federal judge in Mexico was recent however. The Forbes 25 is a percentage-based return for the top fund and hedge fund managers. One of the top returns for the year was 40+% but I believe it was not included in the list. I was well above 100% for the fiscal year.

    GMO crops are a national security threat and harm the environment, biodiversity and human health. Just say no to GMO!

    Not a bad year so far. I beat out the Forbes 25 managers in 2013 by a long shot and have been holding my STKL on the side as well. I suspect we will see some decent numbers this year and the next few years but let's just focus on the present eh? Planting conditions are ideal right now and this could be a very, very good year for soy and sunflowers. Good times for SunOpta shareholders. Very good times indeed.

    True, however, organic is about $30 billion alone. Healthy and natural cannot be confused with certified organic products. Still a good observation though. Tradin was an excellent addition to the company.
