    Well guys its been nice here listening to all the talk, and talking myself, with our holdings on Flo. I sold mine today at a little lower PPS than I wanted, but was averaged in at just over $16.00 and some change. I had to get the cash for this company's stock. I can't let the stock price in DOW go any higher without buying. It's merger with the iconic DuPont chemical company was approved. This, at least I believe, is going to be huge. And if I wouldn't have bought this last week and the rest today the lows were leaving. Anyway good luck with your holdings of FLO its a good stock for sure, and I have made some very good money on it. Here is today's release on the 130 billion dollar Dow merger with DuPont, just in case anyone would like to read. You might want to consider it. IMHO. See you all later.

    EU regulators to clear Dow and ChemChina deals next week -sources

    BRUSSELS, March 23 (Reuters) - EU antitrust regulators are set to clear the $130 billion Dow Chemical and DuPont merger and ChemChina's $43 billion bid for Syngenta next week, people familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

    The European Commission could announce its approvals for both companies at the same time either on Monday or Tuesday, the people said.

    It is rare for the Commission to announce joint merger decisions but it probably makes sense in this case as both companies are in the agrochemicals sector, the sources said.

    Both mega deals in the agrochemicals industry and another one involving Bayer and Monsanto have triggered fears among regulators and farmers that the merged companies may slow down the pipeline of new herbicides and pesticides.

    Commission spokesman Ricardo Cardoso declined to comment. Dow did not immediately respond to an email for comment. A Syngenta spokesman said the Swiss company and ChemChina were confident of closing the deal in the second quarter of the year.

    The EU antitrust enforcer has set an April 4 deadline for the Dow and DuPont deal, and April 12 for the ChemChina and Syngenta deal.

    U.S. chemical companies Dow and DuPont managed to address EU competition concerns with a revised package of concessions which included asset sales and transfer of research and development activities to a rival, sources told Reuters last month.

    ChemChina, which is making the largest foreign acquisition by a Chinese company, won over regulators with its pledge to divest a couple of national product registrations, including existing products and a few in the pipeline, in more than a dozen EU countries, other sources have told Reuters.

    This is not necessarily a bad thing for the long-term investor however.

    When companies experience (or are perceived to experience) short-term trouble, it can be a great opportunity to pick up shares at a discounted price.

    "The best thing that happens to us is when a great company gets into temporary trouble...We want to buy them when they're on the operating table." - Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)

    We will discuss why Flowers Foods current stock price presents a buying opportunity rather than a reason to be fearful.

    Business overview

    The predecessor of Flowers Foods was founded in 1919 by two brothers in Thomasville, Georgia. The company became known for its high production volumes, state-of-the-art technology and great sanitary standards.

    The company first went public in 1968 as Flowers Industries and introduced its famous Nature's Own bread in 1977. The company was renamed Flowers Foods in 2001 and has gone by that name ever since.

    Flowers Foods is now the second-largest bakery business in the United States. With four product mixes, two distribution networks and three sales channels, it has become a force to be reckoned with in the bread industry.
