What Was Wrong at Kraft Heinz?

Last week the stock of the packaged food giant, Kraft Heinz, took a nosedive. The stock fell by 28% on news of a SEC investigation of the company’s accounting practices but more so the nosedive was due to gigantic losses in the last year.

This provides a huge tax advantage when held for many years. Now the question is what investments to […]
