No. In general REITS stay public. Too many tax advantages. Privatization of this makes zero sense especially after plum creek deal. So yeah...zero chance. And yes this is a hold here. Dividend stable to growing.
And you see the result. This junk goes back to 3's. No buyout no hope for this slimey grocery.
Buffet is late to the party as usual. He needs to grow a pair and invest in something earlier in the growth cycle like Twitter or Facebook. Google would be ok too. Look at what happened to IBM after he invested in it...years of poor returns even negative. Yes, Apple isn't IBM but the real growth is over. More than a few people think the Oracle of Omaha had lost his touch and is senile. He's resting on his laurels but those are wearing thin. He may have beat the market in the past but the market is a forward-looking thing and those who don't invest for the future get left behind.
He's disgusting....how many apple baggies bought his line of bs about this being a great buy. Even the divvy is a little skimpy.
Yep..brightness in the tunnel is...AN ONCOMING TRAIN...camera on a stick is KAPUT!!
Sentiment: Strong Sell
MM's jacked this one last time to sucker retail baggies in for the slaughter on Q2 earns.
You have been warned. Easy 15% haircut on this pig coming...sub 500 by Q3..
Yeah..like employees pay attention. They may not have cameras in the bathrooms but if they did and you could see a day's activity you would see many NOT washing after a number 2 or doing so in a very cursory manner. Then they go immediately back to prep or handling produce etc.
