KO shuffle

I don't have it on tape but did WEB say that the total cost of the compensation plan was the same? Sounds like they just moved things around.

Re: Web & Becky together again...

They should have Winters on instead. I'd rather hear a critical view of the new plan. Does KO's performance really warrant the payment of Billions of dollars to management? Did KO pre-release the new plan to WEB for his approval? The timing of the [more]

Re: Wintergreen dumps Berkshire?

Winters could end up saving KO Billions and BRK hundreds of Millions. I guess I don't hate him that much. I'd love to see the 3G guys get a hold of KO and show the world what they can do.

Re: Sweetener in Burger King deal

I'm guessing that the warrants were granted at a nominal cost. Somehow the return needs to get up to 12-13% or WEB wouldn't have been interested.

Re: earnings

The former AIG exec's will make up for it. Geico continues to prosper. All in insurance seems very healthy to me.
