    Your just dense aren't you. Are you a sheep that follows the majority? Thats your logic? Maybe some people live and work in very safe areas? Maybe some people are under age? (Although in many states 10 year olds can shoot large caliber rifles hunting with a parent & training) Maybe some people (hmmm) are afraid of guns? Maybe some people are just STUPID? Maybe some people are like.....sheep and just do what everyone else does??

    And of course with your clear thinking, all aspirin & prescription drugs should be banned because someone may use them for a suicide?

    Even Barry Odumbo has 24 armed security. Why is that? Maybe you should tell him he is just "insecure"!?!?
    Poor Baby!

    "who don't feel unsafe" Classic.... if you don't FEEL unsafe, you aren't. I wonder how you idiots would "feel" walking south Chicago at night? Only an idiot would say, ......just fine.

    And yes some people HAVE to be in these areas. I lived in LA, NY (twice), Boston, Dallas, etc. I HAD to go into some bad areas. In NY a friend (native) said EVERY ONE of their semi drivers carried, and he would NOT STOP at red lights in one area. All Korean distributor drivers carried. They did business in cash.

    The irony is that you totally ignore reality, while being condescending towards others who address it.

    I did answer your question. I have a dozen guns, I feel safe. Now why don't you answer mine? Because they show you to be a classic lib moron? Just my opinion. :-) You ridicule people here on a regular basis and like to tell other people how THEY should live.

    Meanwhile YOU totally ignore the fact that some people don't just "feel" like they need to protect themselves, but SHOULD. Even small towns throughout the US have meth labs, heroin, Mexican gang bangers, and other crazies. There are also other reasons to carry.

    If YOU do not want to carry, don't! Just avoid any street named Martin Luther King Blvd! :-) Really!

    I have concealed carry because I have 100 acres & a 40 acre island I spend time on. I like to carry a pistol, because we have local bear. Even black bear can be ornery. Should I put a coat on and cover my pistol, it is a crime unless you have concealed carry. Also I kayak a lot and plan on trips on western rivers, so I got the Utah permit, which has reciprocity with 30+ states. Should I float the upper Missouri River, I am covered in every state we would go through. I definitely would carry on that trip for snakes alone.

    Also my house is protected.... My wife experienced a home invasion once in her life. (druggie pair) It won't happen again. Those are my reasons. Not fear of the president. Although the moron did try to turn the IRS into his personal Gestapo, didn't he?!?! And under Odumbocare, the IRS will collect fines and take assets without due process... And Odumbo just had an "executive order", that he himself, many times, has said he could not do because "he is not an Emperor, or Dictator".

    Name calling? parent - for.... is just a tag. Dope_ for _ in my opinion a more accurate tag. Whats wrong with that?
    So what if YOUR job required YOU to be in Ferguson at night? Me - I would carry. You would do what if an issue would arise? Hmmmmm.... Call the police to come with a GUN? I also would call the police and want them to handle any issue.
    But YOU have to HOPE they come in time. Why would YOU put yourself in that position?

    The sheriff over Milwaukee county routinely recommends that citizens ARM themselves for their own protection, because they cannot always make it in time.

    Meanwhile my neighbor has two relatives that are on the job in Chicago. The cops there WAIT until the shooting stops in the black areas before going. Too many lawsuits against cops by NAACP.

    Lets hope that none of the MORON animals that live in Ferguson try to hurt the police or citizens, ALSO! My bet is that is much more likely, than the law abiding citizens in surrounding areas.

    Want to make a wager on that dope_for_dumb_laws?

    Would YOU want to drive around that city at night? Walk around at night? Why not?

    I have about a dozen guns. Small concealed carry to semi-auto scoped rifles (Montana elk). I feel comfortable.

    Duh - no people should not bring guns to school.....Big leap there moron.

    Almost everyone I knew had guns when they were twelve. MOST all of us had bb guns since we were maybe 8. Currently in Wisconsin you can deer hunt at 10 with a parent & AFTER taking a hunter safety course. Alone at 14, with hunter safety. EVERY year about 600,00 hunt just deer. Add in duck, pheasant, bear, wolf, squirrel, turkey etc., you may have maybe 1.5 million people in one state very comfortable and trained in guns.

    Having lived in 8 states, including LIB Meccas like NY, Cal.,Mass., you soon realize the biggest mouths against guns rarely have even seen one. When the discussion turns to modern sporting guns, most everything spouted is just plain false.

    Soooooo when will parents for smart laws ban cars??? They kill 30,000 every year! People lived for centuries without them. AND they do nothing for personal defense!

    Never had much use for pistols. Now own 3 and getting a few more. Both I and wife have taken classes and have concealed carry. Drugs everywhere, and even in remote N. Wisconsin you have illegals setting up meth labs and growing dope in the national forests.....

    I have had numerous guns since I was twelve...and killed one less person than Teddy Kennedy with an Oldsmobile.

    Annnnnd why did never go to jail for even a day?

    Atty - I agree. NOT without risk, but price is low and they have a solid business base that is diversified in many markets.

    STOP SPENDING!!! Reduce SKU's. DO NOT chase every door & enter new markets slowly and they will do very well.

  • dprofiteer by dprofiteer Oct 29, 2014 9:17 AM Flag

    Big companies always do tests. They do not want any type of failure to reflect on other products.

    Quick thoughts:
    - if tests go well how do you think PEP would do in Sweden with 30% + household penetration? Probably grab a LOT of meaningful market share.
    - Having lived in Europe, the awareness is much higher on healthy eating. PEP would gain meaningful share across Europe.
    - Coke is strong in Mexico. Does PEP want to rollout with SADA in that market? Talk about win/win!

    Yes its just a test. But a test is just a first step and is only taken if other pans are in place.

    I am buying today again after a long time. Solid profitable base, in many markets, high margins with a HUGE upside.

    They need to get spending under control (think factory & Superbowl). Reduce number of products (SKU rationalization). Have CONSISTENT flavors in distribution. Build in their CURRENT retail base and stop chasing every new door (there is large cost to that). IF they did these things profits would EXPLODE.

    Read the prior reply again ....slowly. They DO NOT pay a dividend, they pay a distribution (its a MLP), which has different tax consequences. I suggest you google MLP's and spend an hour or two.

    Agree, that the price has been hit hard, and of course my only explanation is at times the market is irrational....:-)
    I believe that the RAPID global price drop has a lot more behind it than classic supply/demand. Think geo-political.
    - Saudi (with the US) is flooding the market - lower price hurts Russia & helps Europe with winter coming.
    - China's continued push into coal, their low cost abundant fuel.
    - ISIS flooding the market with $60/barrel oil to fund their war.
    - Speculators realizing lower oil may be the future as tracking spreads worldwide in such unlikely places as the UK.
    I would not own ANY green energy stocks as the cost comparisons are only going to get worse.

    "Cheaper oil reflects lower demand " Actually that is not the case. It is an abundance of supply.The US is up 70% in its oil production in just the last 4 years.

    Demand will INCREASE even more with lower prices. IF your company is based on fees on the AMOUNT of oil going through the pipes, increased demand is good.

    "The chemicals in NON Co2 home carbonation systems will be lucky to get FDA approval..."

    Can you imagine the health effect of these chemicals with heavy consumption???? Obesity doesn't sound bad compared to cancer.
