"NEW YORK (AP) -- Wal-Mart, the nation's largest food retailer, is urging its thousands of U.S. suppliers to curb the use of antibiotics in farm animals and improve treatment of them.
That means asking meat producers, eggs suppliers and others to use antibiotics only for disease prevention or treatment, not to fatten their animals, a common industry practice. Experts say Wal-Mart is the first major retailer to take a stance to limit the use of the antibiotics."
Rest of the story can be accessed under WMT quote, and for the time being, on Yahoo Finance home page.
When I saw "Corrected Article" published 5/19 by Accesswire, I presumed Accesswire was correcting:
"In April, the company was featured in the NY Times Sunday Magazine in its feature 'Health Essentials: Cancer Prevention and Treatment'. The article featured the company's CEO and Co-Founder James Nathanielsz's perspective on the new developments with the company's technology and plans to commercialize it."
"the company had a paid advertisement in the NY Times Sunday Magazine...", but I was wrong.
I'm curious to see what kind of pay raises (and other perks) Julie and Ed received relative to the prior year.
I think mom has the best deal; what does she actually do?
Yes, with the exception of mom's modest sales last winter, insider sales have been tame. Gotta keep the family's share above 50% lol.
I was a tad dismayed during my last visit to a local WFM earlier this week when I noticed there were only 5 skus of LWAY's kefir. Frozen kefir and biokefir??? Both have been absent for many months for the former and well over a year for the latter--I was told by the guy stocking dairy that biokefir was not selling. For the past how many? conference calls, Julie has said the same thing: "strong sales of the flagship kefir, frozen kefir and biokefir". Granted one store does not count for much. (biokefir nor frozen kefir never made it into the WFM I frequent in the city (not town) that I live). Over the years, I have witnessed a few competing brands whereas in the past there were none.
Happy Memorial weekend to all and take a moment to consider what this holiday is about.
Or...keep the number of shares outstanding the same and watch the share price (hopefully!) increase by the same PERCENTAGE!
Why do people consider the level of the share price, by itself, as a relevant metric when making an investment decision? A ten dollar stock may be more expensive than another company's stock that is $100.
Rather, they should simply consider how much in dollars they want to invest and then determine how many shares to buy. Isn't that how people approach investing in mutual funds?
All I care about is the VALUE of my holdings. The number of shares I own, by themselves, is not really relevant.
chubbs, I'm confused because the resident "technical analyst", you know the one that stated one's capital gain in a stock is considered "interest", had said several times that the lows had been made and that there would be a rally in "two months" and THEN a "super rally" in a few months more! BTW, what the heck is a "super rally"??? Maybe necropolis should trademark this "term"?
Not sure if she has bought shares recently, but a week or so ago, she stated that she didn't hold any shares, but was here to "support the group" or something like that.
I'll go with what you wrote as being accurate....and yet, vpor chose him do be their CPA???
Bad goes with VERY BAD (vpor)???
And today, the "idiots" announced their deal to by Omnicare; market has responded POSITIVELY.
I do not share your sentiment.
"The customer goes to WFM and TFM because they do not need to read labels. Everything is organic."
I've never been in a TFM, but I can assure you that not "everything" sold at WFM is organic.
I do agree that conventional super markets are putting some pressure on WFM.
"the irrigation used on organic , makes it non-organic "
I don't know a "granny"; please expound on the above statement.
In all fairness to S.A., TODAY'S notice appears to be identical to the 4/9 notice...so S.A. was timely.
I'm not clear why the second notice was made today.
I'm not so sure that any long should be excited about the "conference".
A fairly recent post stated that a few of the past "featured" companies have gone bust.
I just received a Seeking Alpha Breaking News re LWAY email.
Subject: "LWAY: Lifeway Foods receives Nasdaq letter of non-compliance"
Text of S.A. "piece":
"Lifeway Foods (LWAY +0.8%) says it received a letter of non-compliance from the Nasdaq.
The issue concerns the failure of the company to file its annual report on time."
Very timely LOL.
I have no idea; he once was invested in J.C. Penney.
Why not share the NAME of said "penny"???
What was the market cap before Soros invested.
Re vpor, no way any hedge fund has a position.
I'd say more that a "few" given you have been promoting that other stock on this board NUMEROUS times.
And yet, our Twitter Queen (Julie), had 13 tweets or retweets on May 18.
While such an activity may not take much time, isn't it time to be solely focused on more pressing professional demands???
