You are sweet. Thanks.

I agree. They should have foreseen the consequences. I worked as a wholesaler for a famous brand, long ago, and any of my co-workers could have foreseen this customer exodus. What a shame.

Thank you. God bless us, every one.
Thank you Jeff. Funny, you wrote that at the same time I was about to write, but I needed to go find my password first. :) Pretend that we are talking about food instead of stocks, so that I can make an analogy that's understandable. McDonald's french fries are yummy and popular. Many people eat them every day. I personally LOVE the anticipation of receiving them at the drive-thru window. But just because they're popular and yummy doesn't mean they're healthy; doesn't mean it's WISE to buy them. Same thing with Tesla stock. It's exciting to watch cool new products have stocks that go up. But when there are no underlying, sound financial reasons to own the stock, it is not investing: it is gambling. And for those of us who stake our claims on stock portfolio management, we need to minimize risk (downside) if we're ever going to perform well, let alone outperform the competition. People with real money count on my advice. I will NEVER send them to Las Vegas...or to Tesla stock.
It was more of a disagreement about keeping/divesting K&G stores. Zimmer wanted to keep them; the new CEO wanted to sell them. Based on the very successful operation of the overall company under the new CEO, it appears to me to be an emotional reaction on the part of Zimmer in not wanting to sell one of his "babies". Perfectly normal for a company founder to have that reaction, but not necessarily in the best interest of growth & profit & shareholders. The discord was an ongoing problem, which apparently couldn't be solved between Zimmer and the CEO. So I understand the decision.
