    They have been moving closer to the fish. The new fountain logo may be a large gold reel

    Whatever makes your business works it what we all must do. At their profitability I won't be buying any fountain stock I assure you. I wish them much success though.

    For those of you whom used Warren Buffet's name.

    Return on Equity (ttm): 30.77%

    This represents what the owners have in the company. And this is an outstanding return. The average for equities is around 13%.

    In an oversimplified sense, the margins mean nothing.

    And Buffett looks at ROE and ROC (return on capital) not primarily margin.

    If you can only use one indicator, its ROE and 30.77% is OUTSTANDING.

    I don't care about all the other stuff. Reggie has a duty to his shareholders.

    Kinda like all the big name corporate sponsored America's Cup racers...... those guys have been doing it for years. Ellison (Oracle) is probably the best at it and his stock price has taken a HUGE beatin gover the past few years from their hay days.
    If you have a really great day every day....... don't change your dosage.
