  • Well Well & Consequences

    They trade on the NYSE, that’s a huge company, dont seem to be using schemes and scams to rob the local treasury for their own survival, like Mark Maloney, small time bottom feeder.


  • Analogous to the AmBev takeover of BHL. A giant getting a little bigger.


  • The main question is, will Rock Hard still be able to access cement from anywhere in the world,as we were told they had to go from portugal to turkey as supplies were being cut from them.

  • Let us bear in mind that Rock Hard is competing on price therefore freight as an input cost is important.
