About a month ago, at least two threads were based on nuts.
Do a Google search; I searched "drought almonds" and found the following:
"Third-generation farmer Skip Sagouspe of Firebaugh stood in a field of uprooted almond trees last week, having made the decision several months ago to tear out the trees as a water-saving step.He farms in the Westlands Water District, which is expected to receive little to no surface water this year. District officials estimate that 200,000 acres out of 600,000 acres will not be farmed because of the shortage of water.Tom Birmingham, general manager of Westlands, said he hopes the governor's declaration will help mitigate some of the drought's impacts, but it does not address the larger problem of chronic supply shortages.He said the state must invest in new water supply infrastructure, including storage and conveyance, and fix problems in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, where Westlands gets its water supply.Sagouspe said he was left with few options, other than to rip out 160 acres of trees, about 10% of his total acreage. He made the decision after realizing the prospect for water was drying up. He will have to rely on the less desirable water pumped from deep wells. The brackish water is high in salts and other minerals that can be especially hard on almond trees.The last of Sagouspe's uprooted trees were being chipped and shredded last week. "You hate to do something like this, but we had to find ways to save water," Sagouspe said. "Now after realizing we may not get any water, it was the best decision we made. We should have taken more out."Sagouspe is not alone in taking out almonds, one of the fastest growing and lucrative crops on the west side. But without adequate surface water, even almonds, especially older trees, become easy targets for removal.Sagouspe says one of his neighbors removed 1,200 acres of almonds and not far away a 500-acre block was taken out."

DMND WILL BE TRADING OVER 100 IN A FEW MONTHS.
Such a profitable and dividend paying company and market cap only $600mil. Are you kidding me. Get your head out of your you know what and load up this gem. This could be an opportunity of life time to make money."
On 2/1/12, DMND closed at 36.74
Are YOU "tired of eating yoiur own xxxxx?"
There is hope!
We were fortunate to receive this nugget 1/24/14:
"Due to bad weather in the east and drought in the west, prices of nuts have gone up (DMND still pays contracted price) and people are eating more nuts and chips in the east."
I didn't realize the nuts and chips demand varied markedly by geography LOL.
"Not just HEMP. This law is for all MJ stocks!"
Gee, I thought there was a BIG difference between hemp and MJ; my bad.
Your "thinking" doesn't makes sense.
You say "buy for the div", but you are negative on the stock.
Someone who takes your "advice" and buys PG today will get approx. a 3.10% yield. So far so good, but IF the share price declines (and stays depressed for years) what would their TOTAL RETURN be?
Why would someone take your "advice"?
You were lucky to have your PG shares drop into your lap.
Are you ever content?
"...they are waiting for SEC to finish investigation. Offer is ready to be printed and mailed as soon as SEC morons are done."
The above was posted almost TWO YEARS ago! I'm pretty sure the "SEC morons are done", why hasn't the "offer" been "printed and mailed"?
No worries, DMND will be "50 this year. Perhaps after earnings in March."
Perhaps being the operative word.
"500mil market cap for a company with a billion dollar revenues... you got to be kidding me."
Fantastic "analysis!" Here's a four letter word you may want to incorporate into your "analysis""
Since I am LONG DMND, I'd love it if DMND was acquired, or if it traded @ 50 bucks in about six weeks, but I just don't see either happening in the near term. But heck, I felt the same way almost 2 years ago. I've been consistent with my thinking just as this poster has been. Now what was she saying about eating XXXX????
Admittedly my post was not super clear. I'll try again,
Is your plan to hold PG, through thick and thin, and receive / live off the quarterly dividends until you die?
If your estate is valued within the exclusion amount, your estate will not have a federal tax liability (but probably state) Voila! no federal taxes paid!
Sorry guys, always has been always will be a pipe dream
You're referring to your "viral blog" being a pipe dream, right?
Which taxes are you concerned with?
Cap gains? Sometimes paying taxes on a gain is better than watching the gain disappear adm not having to pay taxes.
OR...are you concerned with estate taxes? If your estate is valued at $5.35 (I believe that is the level for 2014) or less, no taxes will be assessed and your beneficiaries' basis will be bumped up to PG's value at date of your death or when your estate taxes are filed. If you are lucky, state estate taxes are be rather onerous, since some states have much lower exclusion amounts.
The bigger question I have is: WHAT exactly is the purpose of your constant rants??
P.S. You are very wrong re "something you will never have to worry about"
I'm just A LOT more humble than you are.
"The well-heeled mothers actually hid their faces with their Nieman-Marcus coats as they ran with their carts to load Wal-Mart groceries into their cars."
Are you published?
Verio, a fun post from three months; you short little devil!!!!

sure lots of shorts here today....
scared of the buyout probably. I will keep this list hand to bump in their faces
List of shorts idiot:
"...check out the free mobile alerts from RisingBulls, just text "RUN" to 25827 and get great info on under reported companies displaying serious potential."
P.S. how much are you paid per post???
You come across as a somewhat naive angel, and then BOOM!!! you launch your SPAM attack.
Did Sesame Street teach you to be so disingenuous?
"I have been saying this for so long ..."
YES YOU HAVE! and yet, even YOU do not take your own advice and sell; what's up with that?
verio, good that DMND doesn't have to pay most of the award in cash, bummer that there will be approx. 15% more shares in the mix! (just another cost of the cost of FRAUD). Sure takes a lot of time for justice (as you know, I'm not part of the class as you are)
My aunt, who lives in Morningside, attempted to drove home when driving was atrocious and dangerous (there was NO warning about the impendiing storm). As she was creeping along, a WFM store appeared and she drove into the lot. The manager told her the store was closed, but that she was welcome to enter to stay safe and warm. She was not alone! The registers were closed, but she was told to help herself to "whatever". This was in the morning. Not sure why it took so long, but around 6:00, wine bottles started to be opened and the party lasted until 3:00 A.M. Come mid morning, a good samaritan drove her home in his Jeep.
I imagine other stores in the area had similar experiences, great that my aunt chose a food store! Thanks Whole Foods for caring. The good will will last forever!
