I agree, but it's important to remember that there are competitors and a whole world to serve. Those amounts may not be much for a lot of the world but I bet that's a huge amount of money in a lot of countries. Just don't make it so expensive that you lose out on a lot of players from a lot of poor countries. I don't know if it costs more to have a lot mor ...[text shortened]... than 2 or 3 years at $10 more. I LOVE RHP so i'm going to be here until you kick me out!
Low end competitors offering a less than value seldom if ever pose a serious concern relative to pricing. They also tend to beneficially siphon off those segments of demand the market leader may strategically choose not to target. Principle: No well managed company ever wants all of the business... only all of the profitable business. Virtually impossible to be everything to everybody. Wouldn't you agree?
Since July, several buddies have expressed the view that RHP is, in fact, head and shoulders above all of its competition and in a league of its own. Would you concur? Is this true? P.S. How's Zorky doing?
