I am planning to attend the annual meeting. I do not know what a shareholder can do there except look and listen. If questions are allowed, what would I ask that is not already known? The dividend has been addressed I believe and the future of doj investigation is in flux and off limits. Other lawsuits concluded? Growth and profit will probably be discussed. If anyone else is attending, tell me what your will be your agenda. Advise on what to look for or questions to ask would be appreciated.
Why would someone short a the most successful bakery in America? It would be lack of supervision by their mother. Mothers are supposed to keep their children from making stupid mistakes and help them get along with their lives. Be a success and stuff like that. Some people have bad mothers, or, none and are left to make their own decisions. Bad decisions. Like dating the town std repository, voting to have yourself oppressed by a police state, or joining a religion, or gang, that wants to take over the world. Do not run with scissors, swim after eating, and most of all,,,,,,do not short a successful bakery that splits every 3 years and has paid a dividend since forever. Flowers has been around since before Sam decided to copy and beat K-Mart.
Flowers is paying a dividend of .11 as of dec 4th. Did the shorter from New York City get his dividend? If he did, I am sure he would lie about it. Thomasville City Council has just passed an ordinance to ban short people from NYC entering it's city limits. This means if you short FLO stock, you can not visit Thomasville, GA, not because of the ban, but because you would not be able to afford the bus ticket from NYC.
Yes, walmart sells bread. Can Flowers sell bread without walmart? Yes, yes they can.
Meeting details? I live in Atlanta but do not have any questions that they would want to answer. It is a 10 mile drive and might be worth it just for the show. Ample seating? Invitation needed? Dress code? Pajamas ok? Free food? Free insurance? Free insider info? Donuts and coffee?
Only if there are shares available for purchase---Naked shorts do not have to purchase shares, because there are none to buy, not mine, unless they want to pay $30/sh as listed up for sale by my broker--I guess they could buy shares, but only if some long wants to sell at a big loss--Anyone know what % short interest is this week??
Yes, Thomasville is a small town, with only one horse. Flowers is now a national company and possibly moving into Canada by buyiing Canada Bakery. Yes, I am sure you will either NEVER eat bread again, this includes a sandwich, or, you are a shorting liar. Go to Yahoo charts, click max chart, click splits info and you will find the bread company you are shorting has split 3:2 about every 3 years since the early 1990s. That is a lot and have paid dividends all the way. So, you say it is a rollup? You can make money off Flowers with a method I can not understand? OMG, are you REALLY Ican? Going to buy 15% of it's stock and force those fat white men to give you a seat on their board? Hmmm.....I think you delusional. I have a basis in FLO of about $2/sh or less.
Went into a fdo store in the worst neighborhood for a store in atlanta, the store was clean, orderly, and staffed by caring employees who seemed to like their jobs. On the way into the store, I was offered the best drugs from the group hanging out in front of the store. The fdo employees have to put up with these urban hanger outers all the time and still have a great attitude. They announced upon my entering the store that cameras are set up and monitored. I found the prices on staples there in line with Kroger with maybe only a 5 to 10% premium. FDO does not gouge it's captured neighborhood customers like so many other "bad neighborhood" stores. This store was in top shape with merchandizing appealing and orderly so once inside, you would never know you were in a dangerous neighborhood. I periodically check some of fdo stores since I have owned the stock since the 90's.
Un-negative media? Never heard of that. Nice you say? Never heard of that. Hey, maybe things are looking up. Thumbs up.
Nope, nobody here, just me. This a place where you can not make a sound, because, there is nobody here to hear it. Unless something major this company will continue grinding out a meager profit in a steady way. It will not change rapidly from your consecutive pleads. They started out as insults and threats but soon it was evident that I was being begged. Well, you are not good at begging and it is becoming embarrassing so just short the stock and wait.
