Agree completely. To be successful, you need to have a short term memory. If you did miss an opportunity, oh well. Figure out why you missed the opportunity, learn from it, and apply that lesson the next time the situation arises. However, dwelling on the misses and having a knee jerk reaction is a recipe for failure.

Great topic!

Industry Analysis: Grocery Store Stocks
6 months ago

As I mentioned in this article, I gave a pretty high level review using the metrics in our stock screener (Yield, Payout, Dividend Growth Rate). If the company passes that and I decide that I want to consider it further, I will take the time to do a deeper dive and probably provide the analysis you were looking for. However, based on my screener, I determined I was not interested in pursuing further so I left the analysis where it was at. However, I don't think commenting on their concept of 365 stores opening to provided a cheaper option for customers is too positive. It could work out well for them or it could not. But as a consumer, I'm excited about the idea. Hopefully that gives a little more insight as to why I conducted my analysis the way I did. Thanks for the comment!
