Marketline Report for Friday, May 24th
SHELLADY ... "What a day today was. We saw volatility across the board and the ag markets, the livestock and grains markets, were not spared. Every day this goes on and every day we've got a problem with China or some sort of trade war, quote-unquote, with China, we run the risk of losing that customer coming back to us, right, because China's going elsewhere for whatever they need. And, every day that they're shopping elsewhere gives that new purveyor of goods a chance to lock them down as a long-term customer. And, I think that's what the equity markets told us here today. So, keep that in mind. Is the customer going to come back, and that customer being China? That's something the equity markets finally woke up to, so each day that this goes on, makes it more difficult for us to get 100% of it back. We'll get a lot of it back, but we're not going to get 100% of it back."
