retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday, MNB reported that Publix Super Markets had in its most recent fiscal year annual net earnings of $1.16 million, compared with $1.09 million in 2008.

Not sure if it was because the “M” is located so close to the “B” on the keyboard, or whether it was just that I was writing on east coast time while traveling on the west coast, but clearly this was a goof.

Publix had earnings of $1.6 billion...not $1.6 million.

No excuses. I screwed up. And I apologize to anyone with Publix stock who saw my erroneous number and fainted.
