    Campbell soup has been the worst performing stock in the food group over the last 10 years and the future does not look bright

    Mondelez is not looking good, either. In fact, a coup needs to be staged to seize this company from this woman and her band of young groupies.

     

    Investors like myself look for established United States firms with strong presences in third world countries to capture excellent profits from candies, cookies, chips, sodas.

     

    Coca-Cola didn't become number one in the world by just shaking hands- there was always something in that hand. You find the distributors, outlets, merchandisers- and keep them happy.

     

    You let the sugar, caffeine, fat, and salt loose- and everything takes care of itself. There's no reason this stock shouldn't be $45 in 6 months. Just get to work, ladies.
