    There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience. http://dataunion.tistory.com/19561 Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use.

    Alongside those coronavirus prep bags being filled by shoppers with bleach and hand sanitizer may be boxes of long shelf life Twinkies and Ding Dongs.
    “We are seeing that,” Hostess Brands CEO Andy Callahan said on Yahoo Finance’s On the Move, when asked if he is seeing a bump in business as people stock up, should they be trapped at home due to the coronavirus outbreak.
    Added Callahan, “We are benefiting likely in the short-term due to traffic. That’s the great thing about Hostess, we are there to celebrate things. We are there to comfort things. So we are seeing a slight uptick in traffic. It’s too early to tell, a lot of our point of sale data lags.”
    Even without the bump in business, Hostess has been doing just fine.
    Fourth quarter sales rose 6.7% from the prior year to $216.7 million on the back of momentum for breakfast items such as Donettes. Adjusted operating profits increased 6.3% year-over-year to $52.4 million.

    Hostess shares are up 8% over the past year, outperforming the Dow’s slight gain and the S&P’s 500 7.5% gain. Since joining Hostess as CEO in 2018, Callahan has looked to streamline the business, ramp up product innovation. He also pulled the trigger on the $320 million acquisition of cookie maker Voortman.
    “Hostess has been increasingly improving its base for improved go-forward revenue growth — first, with Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo out of bankruptcy; and now, with Andy Callahan as CEO. We’re simply in late stage two of an operational turnaround, which we like,” wrote Jefferies analyst Rob Dickerson in a note to clients.

    Hostess Q1 2020 Earnings call is set for Fri. 5/8/2020 before market opens. I think they will beat expectations with everybody quarantined and binging on delicious sweets.

    Overall I think we will see upside for TWNK in the short-term. Perhaps a pullback next day or so could occur I suppose but are yall also seeing a further leg higher? Do you guys find it difficult to know when to buy or sell something? I prefer to get my stocks from awesom-eSTOCKS.
