Breaking Through as a Challenger Brand in a Dominating Industry with Michael Landa
"Michael say what's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know probably feared asked people my office they would not know was trying to think earlier is one thing that they definitely would not know about me and that is that up until about I'd say probably a couple of years ago I could still do a standing backflip in my office. So Yeah. I kinda grew up as a competitive gymnast when I was in high school and then I was non-american swimmer. So I mean swimming was really my main sport. But I competed a lot on the floor exercises in gymnastics as well, which is something people most people don't know about me. I've just always had this feeling that if I ever tried a standing backflip immediately tear my MC l. that's just a thought that I I don't know why I had that thought that's why I said for years ago try. Not Going to happen. So fire nation as I shared the talking all about teaching an old dog new tricks and my guest today has launched a company called New Loewe, which is a combination of the words nutrition and love. So that Super Cool New Loewe and why Michael I mean, you went to business school why did you decide to start a pet food company before the PETRIE company? Kind of the Genesis of the Food Company was a company I started? Before new I, I'd spent the early part of my corporate career working for big companies. I used to work for is your oxen in General Electric, and then most recently with universal studios in. Two thousand one that I was in L. A. and I was taking a quick break and. I found I. Don't know how many of you have been through the experience of trying to find a pet sitter for your pet. I went through an experience, sperry the detail, but basically led me to leave universal and start what became the nation's largest at home pet sitting dog-walking training business. Is based in Los Angeles and we. I spent about a decade running that company and was it was in and of itself was a really cool business about one, hundred, eighty five. Pet Sitters dog walkers doing roughly eleven thousand a month all over Greater La, and you know the significance of that was I was you know we're on the front lines of feeding a large population of dogs and cats whether parents were traveling and over the course of the decade I really started to see a huge demand for pet sitters who could administer at home insulin shots, and this is for diabetic dogs and cats, and we eventually it started to stress the business where I couldn't hire that tax and and trained my sitters to give shots fast enough and you know one thing I was trained academically as a biomedical engineer. So I I can be annoying and in my ability to kind of. Dig for root causes and that's exactly what I did in this case is you know I started asking myself like what what's happening why are so many pets getting sick why are so many dogs and cats getting diabetes and? I went out and talking to vet schools and scientists around the country and you know what I learned wasn't I'm GonNa say it wasn't really rocket science but it was you know essentially that are pets are living in in their own version of fast food nation we have you know we we have a country where four. A large large conglomerates control over eighty percent of the pet food sales in the United States and you know these are the very companies that make candy, chocolate, Jelly and cereal right. These are these are the four that control eighty percent of our pet food distribution the US. So you know. Really. The majorities are really low in meet their high in carbohydrates, these high glycemic ingredients. They're marketed very well but unfortunately, dogs and cats can't use the food for themselves otherwise, they choose products that are high in meat. That's one of the reasons you know I. Before I even gave it much thought I was leading Los Angeles moving to Austin Texas and I started new Loewe with the objective of creating a food platform. That's more species Pacific for dogs and cats at high in meet low in carbs and look like

And we're working with that blueprint of Anga and that material through the process that I described before us, we felt isolated that that gene. Put it into yeast, and then as we move further in our development process and we start to scale up. she's the one that's basically informing what that protein looks like. And what would it would it, would it? Comprises would constitute so yeah, she's A. Girl, that's the thing talk about a difference in terms of scalable solution between that, because I imagine the the plan is to be able to sell this pet food all over the country, if not the world Sir Yep and one chicken one vial. One vial from one chicken, who still alive rating so it instead of? An at scale with the tonnage that we will be doing one day. Having to have like thousands, if not tens of thousands or millions. Of, chickens to be able to produce the equivalent protein. It's incredible, so this process will Kazaa I've spoken to a number of people now. On the show about these this type of I suppose just give it a blanket term alternative meet quote unquote. So, there are there are people like for example. is with Blue Blue. Luke Cooper House who's making fish and he prefers the term cell based than I spoke and also shock meets out in Singapore Sunday. She also calls it cell based, and then I spoke with the new age meets Bryan Spears, and he calls it cultivated That's his term I'm noticing that you're calling cultured and actually the one of the main differences. That I'm hearing is that no one has spoken about yeast. You're the first one so they're kind of like. Is there one term to that that's going to. describe all of them, or is there a really different terms for different types of methods? Yeah I mean each method is a bit different. I think what you're finding is an industry that so new. You know that people are trying to find the right words to explain it. Because, it's not like. You now five years ago. Any thing like this existed even in its early form in every so everyone's just trying to find a way to talk about it. That would make sense to people and I think. By and large. There's a lot of overlap between. These different processes in the mechanics of how they work Cultured because. In some ways we feel like that best represents our process you know. Were you're taking this culture from chicken putting it into east, and they're using the mechanics of the machinery of the uses across to produce our ultimate check in protein now.

As America Saves Pets, Chewys Sales Leap Up
"House. We have a dog and two cats mostly for the kids. They have names but to me. They're just dog boy cat and girl cat yet. Maybe I'm just not that much of a pet person. Luckily for the seven million plus homeless animals in this country most Americans are since the crisis hit pet. Lovers have been rescuing dogs cats guinea pigs in the like in record numbers. When you're socially isolated at home and new four legged best friend can truly be a lifeline. These eager new pet parents are intern. Lifelines for shelters faced with pandemic closures managers feared they'd be overrun with stray dogs. And cats. Many worried that they'd have to euthanize animals to manage the population according to NBC News. But the opposite happened shelters pivoted to online applications. Drive-by adoptions and even facebook live puppy promotions in response shelters have been overrun with eager adopters. Now there are waiting lists of families searching for a Fido of their own which brings me to the business side of the story. Chewy DOT COM. The big online pet food supplier. That went public.

The Away-From-Home Challenge
"We're GONNA START WITH COCA COLA. First QUARTER AND REVENUE FOR COCA COLA. Came in higher than expected. What stood out to you in this report because what stood out to me was how much Coca Cola. Depends on what they refer to as the away from home channel. Yeah I think in terms of It wants you hear it it. It becomes Kind of what? You might have expected if you had been thinking a lot about the business of coke but the away from home Channel is off. I think fifty percent Since the sort of global lockdowns a stay at home has occurred so the numbers for the the whole quarter. Don't come out really nearly as badly because people stocked up For Coke and water and orange juice and now they're having stocked up not going to be buying as much but This whole away from home. You're talking about theaters. You're talking sporting events you're talking about convenient stores. Picking something up at the gas station All of that Is is way way way off fifty percent? That's for a company. The size of coke. That's pretty impressive. Yeah I mean you throw in restaurants and bars and Yeah it's it's as you said once you start to think about it it makes perfect sense and I'm curious to see how quickly they can bounce back from this and I guess we're going to get at least an additional data point this weekend when the state of Georgia opens for business to a degree that a lot of other states are not open and we see well how many people are going back to these venues. And and what is the activity like because you can wave a magic wand and said we're going to open up all the restaurants and bars. I still think the majority of people are just going to stay right where they are and I think that for Coca Cola. It's good that they've got the distribution network. They have because it seems like the away from home channel is going to be slow to ramp back up so Georgia well. You know you're going and you're you're getting a tattoo or you're getting a massage because those are two of the main things that are being opened in Georgia. Of course you're going to have a coke. So that's gotTa help gymnasiums as well. You know planet fitness. Exactly if you're if you're getting I mean who who's not working out with a couple of folks to be fair they do. They do have dishonesty. their water brand so yes and it is the home of Coq Georgia Atlanta Georgia. So I think that It's it's an restaurants I think are opening up bars in the Georgia border It you know. This is a a a fraction of fraction of their global sales But you know places around the world Slowly opening up As other places in other hemispheres are locking down more. So there's going to be a rolling Improvement in the small locations and geographies while others are Coming down and the result of that is for coke as it is with so many others You know we can't give guidance right now. So that's part of the Hit that the share price took earlier is not that big deal but I think that it's off one or two percent other sort of staples consumer staples Are still able to. In many cases give guidance and coke is is not because of the degree to which it's tied into entertainment You know it's major push for advertisement. This year of course was going to be the Olympics. That's off the table. They'll save some money on the advertising but that was the twenty twenty plan was to organize around the Olympics well and when you talk about consumer staples companies maintaining their gyns. Today we also had jammed smucker come out and the AARP second quarter. Earnings report doesn't come out. I think for another four or five weeks but SMUCKER raised its guidance for rest of the fiscal year. I was a little surprised by that until I remembered that J. M. smucker also has a pet food segment under their brand umbrella and I the pet food segment has to be helping them. As to be a people stocked up one of their brands milk. Bones I know our dogs are getting more milk bones Right now every day than they typically get given them streets. Hopefully my kids are giving them Some milk bones right now to keep them quiet while we record and that's actually a fairly large part of the business. Is The pet brands. Not just milk bounds but nine lives and A number of other things And also people are getting dogs They're S- could news for a pet shelters that the number of people have have gone and Found a pet there and Anyway that that's a little bit marginal for smokers but good news for dogs around the around the country

Should I use a free podcast host
"It's been a few days since my last episode and really glad to be back here this is a topic this really near and. Dear to my heart because I remember what it's like to be s starting podcast or yes it's been six years. Now it's been a while but I remember what that was like and I remember that there were a lot of decisions to make. There were a lot of things to consider and even though when I started, I had somebody kind of guiding my path. If you will one of those decisions that I kinda struggled with was media hosting, how much I was willing to pay for podcast hosting because like many other starting podcasters I was on a budget I had a limited amount of money to spend, and so I was making decisions based on. I perceived to be value for money. So how much upload could I get for? How much I was willing to spend because most of the media host at that time you paid for a certain amount per month of upload or you paid for bandwith repaid for something and so it was kind of doing that math and it was a hard decision. So I'm going to share my thoughts with you today with the your starting podcast or or an experienced podcast I'm. Hoping that there's GonNa be something here for you today for the starting podcast. I'm hoping that this will bring a little bit of clarity to the decision making process and for those of us that have been around for a while maybe some of the way that I think about this will help you as you try to communicate these kinds of things to other people. Now I don't for a minute suppose that I have all of the answers so if you have any. Additional commentary I'd love to hear that you can have that in the comments on this episode I'd love to hear from you as I told you in the Intro I do believe that you should pay for your podcast hosting for your media hosting. Yes I remembered. What's like I? Remember sitting down with a limited amount of money thinking okay. Should I go with Lipson her blueberry? Each one gives me this much and ended up making a call based on one recommendation. and to how much I could get from my money how much upload I could get my money but I think that I was thinking about it a little bit incorrectly because I was kind of viewing it as a commodity kind of the idea that well, all media Sir essentially the same. So just pick the one that you like and on one level. That's that's okay. It is a bit of a commodity however I would also say and I would even argue that. You're media hosting and your RSS feed are the two most important technological aspects of your show that you can own. Yes. The software, the issues to produce matters, your websites, matter your skills as a host and as a producer matter, the the podcast apps that people listened through those matter although you don't actually own those but none of that stuff matters if you don't have a way. To get your show to your audience and that's what the media hosting in the RSS feed are in my mind at work in supply chain for my day job I worked for a large pet food company, and so I I tend to think of things like that. So I'm going to kind of share my thoughts based on how a supply chain works. So if you think about the Process of producing your show. I would think of that lake manufacturing you take all the raw materials you take all of the different ingredients who mix them together you apply some kind of technology in some kind of process and you create your product your show you've got that shiny new show that you want to get out there and you have an audience, you have consumers or customers. Or people out there who are looking for the kind of thing that you do, and so they go to the various places that they can get this. This might be similar to a retailer maybe Amazon or maybe Walmart or Kmart or some of Kmart Mart. Yeah. Some other store out there. So that's what they're going to get the show. It's show up sort of on the shelves if. You will for them in their favorite podcast APP but you still have to get the show that you've made from manufacturing the place that you made it to where the listeners are. GonNa. Get it to where that retailer if you will is going to be and the way that you do, that would be your distribution network you're part of that distribution network and in this model your. Media hosting the place where you actually host the files would be like warehousing. That's where you make sure that your files are available. So when somebody makes that call and they say, I, WANNA listen to this show it's available for them, and then the other thing would be the RSS feed, which is like the distribution network. So the way that you get things out there it's like your. Transportation. So if you have a show that you've made and the files aren't available somewhere for some reason whether it's because the media hosts that you chose has gone out of business or they've had some kind of interruption or something people can't get that. Similarly the RSS feed the thing that makes it available in their favorite podcast APP even if the files are there if there's something. Wrong with that feed, then they're also not going to get your show. So in my mind in terms of technology, the place you keep your files and the way that you get it to people's favorite podcast apps are the most important things that you can have. People can change. APPs they do it all the time. In fact I did it I used to use an APP called downcast. Like overcast I'm trying out Castro in new APPs a lot of the time because I like to check out the new stuff and Kinda stay up on that people can switch that all the time and they can take your show with them. You can change the way that you make your show, but unless you can't produce your show at all, you have the ability to make it available. But if something goes wrong with the way that you're holding the files that are done and the way to get it out to people, your listeners are sunk. They're not going to get it

"It's then a few days since my last episode and I'm really glad to be back here. This is a topic this really near and dear to my heart because I remember what it's like to.

That's that's okay it. It is a bit of a commodity I would also say and I would even argue that your media hosting and your RSS feed are the two most important technological aspects of your show that you can own yes the software that you use to produce matters your websites matter your skills. This is a host and as a producer matter the the podcast apps that people listened through those matter.

You have consumers consumers or customers or people out there who are looking for the kind of thing that you do and so they go to the various places that they can get this. This might be similar to a retailer. Maybe Amazon John or maybe Walmart or Kmart or some of Kmart. Yeah some other store out there. So that's what they're going to get the show. It's GONNA show up sort of on the shelves if you will for them in in their favorite podcast APP but you still have to get the show that you've made from manufacturing the place that you made it to where the listeners. We're GONNA get it to her that retailer if you will is going to be and the way that you do that would be your distribution network. You're part of that distribution network and in this model your media hosting the place where you actually host the files would be like warehousing. That's where you make sure that your files are available so when somebody makes that call and they say I wanNA WANNA listen to this show. It's available for them and then the other thing would be the RSS feed which is like the distribution network. So the way that you get things out there it's like is your transportation so if you have a show that you've made and the files aren't available somewhere for some reason whether it's because the media hosts that you chose has gone out of business or they've had some kind of interruption or something people can't get that similarly the RSS feed the thing that makes it available in their favorite podcast APP up even if the files are there. If there's something wrong with that feed then they're also not going to get your show so in my mind in terms of technology the place you keep your files els and the way that you get it to people's favorite podcast apps are the most important things that you can have. People can change APPs they do it all the time. In fact I did it. I used to use an APP called downcast now I like overcast. I'm trying out Castro in new APPS A lot of the time because I like to check out the new stuff and Kinda stay up on that people can switch that all all the time and they can take your show with them. You can change the way that you make your show but unless you can't produce your show at all you have the ability to make it available global but if something goes wrong with the way that you're holding the files that are done and the way to get it out to people. Your listeners are sunk. They're not going to get it now. Maybe it sounds like turning into a tired old guy. I don't know maybe I am but the thing is in my mind this really matters. I think it's incredibly credibly important. Especially if you view your show as something that's valuable as an asset as something that matters to the people that are listening or that's something that matters to you. If it matters to you I think of it as an asset and I think that the way that you treat it and the way that you make it available for people really matters I really do think that. And so in most instances instances. I think that it's critically important. You've that you pay for your media hosting and for your RSS Feed. However I do think there are some instances when free makes sense so share those with you because ultimately I'm not GonNa make that decision for you? You're the person that has to choose because it's your show so when does free make sense. I think free makes sense. When you're just kicking the tires you just want to give it a whirl you wanna give it a try? I think that free makes sense. When you're making a show that you intend to be disposable a show that you don't intend to have a long run that you don't want to maintain and archive that you don't want to leave it out there? You want it to be a short run show and then you want it to go away. I think in that instance. It probably makes sense. Or if you're just testing something out you're trying it out and you think that maybe it'll turn into something but you don't have a lot of probability in that instance maybe free make sense but if your show matters to you and if your show matters to your audience in your audience matters to you I would suggest that you go with a reputable host with a track record and a service agreement that you're paying for so that you can help. Keep them in business. That's my opinion. That's what I think that you should do. I think that there are instances where free make sense but if your show matters to you and you want it to turn into something. I recommend that you go ahead and find a media hosts that you're paying for that you I believe will do the very best for you and keep your show available without interruption.

The Power of Parsley
"This week? We are talking about the power of Parsley Parsley. Okay yes well. We've we've covered parsley years ago for podcasts. I'm sure there's news wonderful things about personally Being your husband. I know that you put Parsley in a lot of things we eat. I really really appreciate that so what you just explained to all of us this obsession. You may have with Parsley. Well I guess we would call it a small obsession but I just love the taste or guitar. Firstly yeah and then when I learned nutrition I learned a lot about the health benefits of Parsley. And then that it just kind of made it like well. I've gotTa have parsley in anything that I could possibly have it in so I found different ways to add it to my foods and recipes. uh-huh is it because it has some amazing health benefits which I wanted to talk about. Today's do please do so. I think if an herb could be described as humble we'll parsley would fit that bill. I feels right to me. Because it's so underrated. Most people just think of it as a plate garnish right and as the plate garnish. oftentimes people don't even eat it. Leave it there on the plate. Of course we always eat our SPRIG of Parsley. We do. Yeah so one one of the reasons why I I find it to be a very important food is. It's one of the most alkaline forming foods As an herb. It's a food and so- alkaline forming is. That's basically how it balances our body. Chemistry keeps US healthy so In one of the reasons why it is alkaline. Forming is because it has a lot of the minerals. Enrolls that are alkaline forming it has calcium and magnesium and potassium minute which are three really important? alkaline forming minerals uh-huh It also has vitamins a B one. B Three Benign Vitamin C and Vitamin K. Vitamin K is important for for Keeping the blood healthy vitamins. A and C are anti oxidants so they help stop free radical damage from happening in the body body they boost up our immune system so in fact partially is one of the richest sources of vitamin C.. I don't think a lot of people know that I always think of orange juice juice or vitamin C.. Source hersely interesting yes. So by the way calcium magnesium and phosphorus. which is also in Parsley? Are All the minerals that make up our bone so a lot of people think of of milk for strong bones. I think of Parsley Parsley. Okay okay her strong bones so okay now. There are two different types of parsley right You might have noticed there's the curly type And then there's the flat type. The flat type is often called Italian. Parsley so. We've got curly Parsley Italian Parsley nutritionally. There similar okay. There's really not a big difference but in uncooking there's some differences because the flat leaf Parsley tends to withhold itself and and lend a Ni- savory flavor to things that you would cook it in like like a long cook like a broth or soup or or some other you know like a baked good or something whereas the curly parsley is something that you would probably add at the end end of the cooking so you wouldn't put Your big sprigs of curly parsley in a broth. Use the flat parsley for that. And then you might. I want to Add some chopped fresh parsley on top of the the bowl of soup. Once you serve it Is there any sodium. That's more than it should be in in Parsley Parsley well. Most of our plant foods have naturally occur occurring sodium in small quantities the value value of Parsley would be that. It has higher amounts of potassium as opposed to natural sodium. And there's that's really important because the potassium sodium ratio. She Oh in our diet is supposed to have like five times more. Potassium we have of sodium in our diet in the American Diet. It's the complete opposite of that You know we have like more than five times more sodium. Sometimes it's like fifty times more sodium than potassium so parsley can help balance that out too because of if it's potassium content awesome. Yeah so some ways to use it it's really I use it in a variety of ways one. I like to throw a handful of that in my I smooth these Just like any other smoothie if you admit that you would make with fruits and then some Greens usually I'll throw some Greens and they're like either spinach spinach or Romaine lettuce or Kale or something but always a handful of parsley also And you don't taste the parsley so much in those Fruit Green Green smoothies because the fruits usually are what come through in the flavors and the Greens are usually not tasted like like. You don't typically taste spinach in your green in smoothies and the same thing with the Parsley so I like to sprinkle parsley on everything. Pretty much We sprinkle it on even scrambled eggs like to put it in soups that we make I mix it into like meatloaf or Veggie burgers. I just chop it up fresh You can even make a parsley tea. You just take the you know the you know a couple of teaspoons or I'm sorry couple tablespoons of Parsley or just grabbed grabbed few sprigs let it steep and some hot water. And you've got a parsley tea which is really good for your digestion. Oh Yeah and one of the best uses icy for Parsley is is as a breath freshener. Also if you if you eat a meal that has strong flavors in it especially garlic I just did a a little cooking class on garlic and that was one of the things that I shared at the end. was that after. You eat garlic. especially if it's either a fresh garlic recipe or roasted roasted garlic recipe take sprig of Parsley and chew it. The stem part and the leaves chew it. You can chew it enough you can eat it That helps fresh in. Your breath takes away all that garlicky smell on your breath interesting. Yeah you can even. This is kind of interesting because it's really good for the digestion. Can you can chop it up and put it in your pets food because if you notice your pets have a little bit of bad breath write you and maybe they have some awesome digestion stuff going on it will parsley can even like kill worms and little parasites pets so you can just chop it up and mix it into their wet food. We WanNa do that. Yeah Jeff put up a small. Yeah yeah so I mean there's so many benefits of Parsley who doesn't want to go out right now and buy a bunch of Parsley and have it in your fridge throughout the week. That's what I do. I buy buy a fresh one at the beginning of the week and then I just use it up through the week. Yeah I love it. I Love Parsley. I I I'm the beneficiary of all that you know so anything more before we go. I think we have covered most of what we wanted to cover about parsley today. my my hope is that People will start using can get in various ways in their diet.

General Mills Unhealthy Returns
"I'm Matt Greer and joining me is motley, fool, unless wrong gross Ron, it is just you and me in a word. How would you describe how you're feeling right now? So excited I could barely contain myself. Okay. Okay. Always happy to be here with you MAC. Well, good. Well, I'm excited to later. We're gonna talk some net flicks. They're losing the office. If you heard of the office show boy, my kids love them, some office, as do mine, and effective twenty twenty one the office will no longer be on Netflix. We'll talk about that. We're also gonna talk about some FedEx. But let's begin with a rough day for general mills shares down around five percent at the time of our taping on earnings. Ron disappointing revenue weakness in their US snacks business. Now, a lot of us when we think general mills we think cereal and, you know, the cereal cereal sales. In line with last year hanging in there. But they're not just cereal. They've got a number of brands everything from Haagen-Dazs to yo play to pet food, but they are running into this trend of consumers eating healthier, tough go, you got it. You know, it's interesting actually even with today's drop the stock was up twenty five twenty six percent on the year. I would not have guessed that if you'd asked me to, to kind of predict how the stock has done this year. So that was surprising to me, but you nailed it. It's, it's everyone's growing preference for healthier, breakfast and snacking options. It's hit all the companies Kellogg, wand, Elise Kraft Heinz. It doesn't matter who you are certainly general mills is, is not immune to that net sales organic net sales that's important in North America. Fell two percent. That sounds healthy though. That's our Ganic but importantly, because of their attempt to diversify and specifically the blue buffalo pet food company they bought last year. Total sales was actually up seven percent and they saw thirty percent increase in the blue. Buffalo pet business. So diversifying is is working. But obviously they want to grow some of their brands continue with some of their healthier brands a focus on Haagen-Dazs. Interestingly, not so healthy old, El Paso, Mexican their portfolio of natural and organic foods and their snack bars. They're, they're really trying to kind of focus on growing those businesses. So I think the question that everyone wants to know is where does this leave bugles because they I love entry, hopefully, you know, if you love you have you ever had. Carmel bugles. Oh, I don't think so. But when I was a kid, it was one of the most satisfying things to buy the bag of bugles. And then you pretend that they are, in fact, bugles, right? Let alone the child you needed Ave. Clearly. That was just salt and a bag. Why they were so good, crunchy salt and event is true in shockingly, not doing as well today with the health conscious consumer. So let's talk a bit more about the stock because as you mentioned, the stocks had a great last year beating the market. But it's lost to the market over the last five years and shares now trading below where they were five years ago and fun fact still outperforming Kellogg. Yeah. With wolf. Wolf wolf ESO? What's the bull case for general mills? The bull case, I think, is that they're going to continue to diversify through acquisitions, but that's dicey because that, that bull case also has a barriques right around the corner. It's tough to do aquisitions correctly. You wanna make sure you pay the right price. You might make sure you go into the correct areas, I think, part of the strength of general mills over lasts a bunch of months was partly the result of the diversification strategy. Blue buffalo being one the investors seemed to be excited about. But it's tough. I mean, the stocks. Our trading around sixteen times, not just Errol mills. But a lot of these companies, and there's a reason for that. And the reason is, is a lot of uncertainty going forward, and we'll probably still see weakness for some time until they kind of get their product portfolio straightened out. Okay. Ron and as we wrap up here looking back on your cereals, and they don't have to general mills that can be Kellogg, and they can be. But how about some favourite serials by far knock, Chem crabbing crunch is one of my favorites with crunch berries? No without contributes, actually. But foodie, pebbles are just unbelievably yes, love. Overrated. My guy was the Flintstones market. No. It was just the made. The milk fruity fruity ish. You let them get a little soggy of I gotta go. I might have to have them today. Okay. Let me hit you as some of my favorites and tell me how you come down apple jacks, boring. But my wife loves it really is fruit loops. Yeah. Like pretty pebble. Cousin count chocula now to chocolate for me to shot. Are you kidding? Get here is one of my favorites this was a sleeper frosted mini. We have it written down right here on my extra. So I wouldn't forget to mention it if you let them get a little bit Sigy fantastic. And you feel like you're eating wheat. So how bad could it be? Oh my gosh. And one of my truly favorites and I had probably a six to seven year relationship, it was a monogamous relationship here. Think about you needing a hobby, ready ready, golden grams. Oh, they're the Golden Globes are good for sure. I mean harsh their magic. It's a shame that cereal has, has gone, the way of the dodo bird because it's delicious, obviously, it's unhealthy. And that's why but even granola is delicious and milk. Everything is good. The for I'm gonna hit you with three over. Rated cereals. And you tell me if you agree ready? Yeah. Weeds god. Yes. They'll terrible Rice Krispies. They do crack snap, crackle, and pop feeling fun far after that, it's like, okay. And then Cheerios. Yeah. Oh my God. Like eating cardboard. Yeah. Honey nut Cheerios are okay. And then the one and then one more name. I wrote you get this on those other one more one more name. I wrote down and the word or the phrase, I have written by it is. I'm not dead yet. His grape nuts. I always when I was a kid I always associated grape nuts with like being older. And now that I'm older, I still associate with being have to be like, eighty to enjoy the exact. Yes. So I've got a few more years, but I'm looking forward to okay? Let's move on, after that hard hitting analysis. Let's move onto FedEx stock not doing much on earnings. Ceo, Fred Smith said trade disputes, and an economic slowdown have created quote significant uncertainty for FedEx express, Ron. Also facing stiff competition from UPS and Amazon as well. What do you think of FedEx earnings, the earnings are okay, but it's, it's the forward guidance about US China trade tensions, they forecast, a mid single digit percentage, point decline in adjusted earnings for fiscal twenty twenty investors. Don't like to see that, that I can tell you as far as this quarter adjusted revenue up two point eight percent operating income down seven percent though, negatively affected by lower package and freight revenues at FedEx express higher costs at FedEx ground cost associated with their US-based voluntary. Employment played by out the, the are voluntarily retiring, lots of employees there to cut costs. There was some strength though, US volume growth was up increased revenue per shipment at FedEx freight and FedEx ground some, some favorable incentive compensation expense. Decline. So there, there were some offsetting positives. But overall, you know, you don't wanna see a company like FedEx an operating income decline. And let's talk about the competition. Because when you look at FedEx when you look at the stock shares have lost to the market over the last year and they've lost to the market over the last five years, but they're still beating ups, okay? If you want to feel better, if you're go hang out with UPS right, but it seems like increasingly you've got traditional competitors like ups, but you also have the Amazons the Uber's you have anyone with a car who may essentially contract their time and their services out to a bigger company to deliver. How does FedEx compete with that, while you're seeing that it's tough? And you're seeing that in the stock price, they're doing things like making it more convenient for folks to drop off and pick up packages of perfect. Example would be. They just said, they're going going to create drop off and pickup sites at dollar generals, eight thousand stores what that does it puts ninety percent of the US population close to a FedEx full footprint of some kind. So they're trying to make it as convenient as possible their severed ties with Amazon for their express delivery service, the, they're making strategic moves, and sometimes. Difficult move, because as you say, it's very competitive landscape out there in Ron before we get to our next story. I want to say thanks to net suite now we know here at the motley, fool that if you don't know your numbers. You don't know your business, but the problem that growing businesses have the thing that keeps them from knowing their numbers is this Hodge podge of business systems. It's just a mess. You've got a system for accounting. You've got another one for sales. You've got another one for inventory. Yikes. It's so incredibly inefficient takes up a lot of time sucks up way too many resources and Ron, that's where net suite by oracle comes in.

That's right. The Amazon like e Taylor sales doubled every year between twenty fourteen and twenty seventeen and zoomed even higher last year to three point five billion dollars. But it is still.
