When you work on the front lines for a company that has been turning itself around from poor management decisions for the past
two years, you tend to keep up with the corporate reporting to see
how your employer is doing financially. AAP just reported the 4th quarter 2018 and full year results, and did well enough to pay the share holders a dividend. Considering the Trump economy and the
number of companies that last year passed on significant raises to
there employees, it is really quite a kick in the teeth when you get your yearly review and they tell you for the second year in a row that there is no money budgeted for raises, but the share holders get a dividend! When the folks on the counters are no longer motivated to sell more because it does not change there paychecks
then before long the balloon loses its ability to levitate, and the profits will dry up and spiral downward. Wake up and take a look
at what the competition is paying before its too late!
