Yet some mining companies had their best years EVER for profits in 2010 - iirc one of them made about DOUBLE in profits than the prior term.
So I'm really not surprised that we're seeing this from other sectors as well. I hope Costco kicks ass on the east coast and spreads to all of the capital cities - I'm tired of paying stupidly high prices for basic items and never being able to buy anything in bulk. Honestly, who ever only needs 16 rolls of TP? Give me a 64 pack, a 100 pack, I don't care. I'm not going to stop using it anytime soon.
