Dean Foods Files for Bankruptcy
Wake Up and smell the Critical Race Theory
Now if you had shorted DF back in May for a $1. and sold your contract @ under a $1.00 You would have made a $1. per sh. While it was going down.
And if you bought that same share for under $1. per sh and then sold it @ $1. plus per sh, you made another dollar per sh. While it went back up.
And this $2, per sh you just made on a 1 dollar investment was made in only 5 months.
It's like taking candy from a baby, when you know how.
“ protection from creditors given to a company in financial difficulties for a limited period to allow it to reorganize.”
If you would like to gamble, I would buy DF @ $ .75 to .85, but it may take a year or 2 to make a decent profit.
Sure, Pawnie, Donald Trump is quite familiar with Chapter 11.
Wake Up and smell the Critical Race Theory
As he, and all other businessmen, should be.
Chapter 11 is just another tool to be used when you are in business.
IMO, buying and taking a business out of chapter 11 can be very profitable if you know what you are doing and how to bargain.
Are you against using chapter 11 ?
To understand the world, first you must understand a place like Mississippi....W. Faulkner.
