Good afternoon. My name's Roger Groh. We're here today to talk about Tyson Foods, the chicken company, their direct stock purchase program. Why do it? Well, if you elect to buy stock in Tyson, there are couple of ways that you can do it. You can go to your stock brokerage firm and buy it through there and pay a commission. Or, you can go directly to the company and buy it directly from them. The advantage is that you simply would not pay a commission at the company. On the other hand it may in fact be less expensive in total to go to a discount broker, pay a commission and buy the stock at a cheaper price. You can set limit orders. You can wait for a bad day, whatever it might be. I think that the key thing in this is to do it consistently. You know, if you begin to acquire positions for the longer term once a month, once a quarter, once a year, and you stick a little bit of money in over the longer term, that's really how you make money long term in businesses. In Tyson, the direct stock purchase plan is simply a way to do that where you have a way to increase your ownership, no commission, yet at a consistent pace. So that's how you go about buying direct from Tyson and you get the benefit of trying some of the best chicken in the world. I'm Roger Groh.
