  • Verismo is a side show presently-at those prices the gross addition will look good-the long term play on a machine as models are upgraded , is the razor blade theory-I own a Nespresso machine and the cost of the coffee over 3 years is probably 6x my purchase price.

     

    Looking for 65 per share this quarter
