Been an awful winter all over. Didn't know you had blood problems. Best of luck! Myself, I have high blood pressure, but control it with with meds.
I guess my question would be How long did Pirate's Booty exist as a brand before bought out? How much is Wenner extending it to other parts of the country to develop new customers?
" BGS went from being a regular "inside the grocery store" orphan food brand accumulator...... into a low level player in healthy
Excellent characterization. Wenner seemed to veer away from what he was good at.
Yes, but what you don't want is the customers getting used to promo prices and end up with a JCP model in foods.
Could be. I am just afraid Wenner may have hit a wall. If the low margin stuff is all that really produces, could be a problem. I don't care for the big membership stores, but visit from time to time for the bulk stuff.
Given that you don't have a clue what other people's investment strategies are, of course you don't know.
Quite frankly, I wouldn't trust Cramer as far as I could throw him. He depends on people's short memories to forget the lousy advice he's given over the years. He's an entertainer.
I used to be optimistic about F. Got in at 7.32. Have watched as it doesn't move on tons of good news, and free falls on an ounce of bad news. There is a giant foot squashing it. I thought 22 was possible a long time ago. It's my second largest holding, but I have it now for the div, not because I think it will be growth stock.
As I write this, VGR is up .28. This, along with its run up from the 15s, implies that someone is adding big time. Hedge fund? Tobacco company? Private equity? Any ideas?
Everyone's investment strategy is different, so any thoughts may not apply to you. I am on the verge of retirement, so my portfolio is made up of dividend stocks for the cash. DD fits that priority for me. If you want to take the gains and invest in something else, that would be your priority. At any rate, good luck in whatever you decide.
