Q: As with many other subscribers, I will start with expressing my thanks and compliments for your great service.
I have held Boston Pizza for some time. The monthly distribution has offered a good return in the past and it looks even better as a result of the falling price of the stock. Presently it is about 6.9%; do you see any reason why this might be reduced?
After about a year of slipping, do you see any hope for the stock price to improve?
Thanks, Leonard
