Guess what was the only stock in the S&P 500 to gain today…
The S&P 500 retreated 106.59 points to 1,106.42, as only one company gained, Campbell Soup Co.

No shit, I bought 4 cans today....It was on sale!
best day ever!
free soup, coffee, and donuts?
can someone explain to me why exactly we DON'T want another great depression?
Anyone check the trading price for Top Ramen yet? I'm gonna' make bank on this!
Colton, the Top Ramen futures market is OTC.
I still have a box of Top Ramen dating to 2003-2004. Perhaps Top Ramen as a commodity is optimized toward hoarders? It doesn't seem to lend itself to to changing hands easily.
Warhol laughs from his grave.
you know why? because Campbell's soup makes REAL PRODUCTS.
bullshit, I was just in the store the other day and every can of Campbell's soup was $2.30+ except for the kids' ones that were marked down to a dollar fifty. That shit's supposed to be a dollar!
If you call gruel a real product...
Was there ever a time when that stuff was real food? It seemed like it was when I was a kid, but maybe I'm misremembering. I bought a can a couple of weeks ago, in lieu of spending $7 on lunch, and it was some sort of dairy-like substance with a few bits of chicken and potato floating in it.
@8: tell that to the people who make washing machines and cars -- indubitably real products -- who are crapping their pants right now.
i get the feeling fnarf is crapping his pants right now too
No, no, I'm good. I took a beating today, but I can cope; I'm comfortable, and I still have a lot of working years left, and if I lose my job, which is unlikely, I'm in pretty good shape to get another like it. Millions of other people are in much more precarious positions.
I just bought a couple of cans of good vegetable soup at the store on sale for 50 cents a piece. Now I'm thinking I should have stocked up.
I'm in a similar situation to Fnarf. This is not great for, but even if I lose my job, I'll probably be able to get another similar one. Probably.
But, I have been making nonstop jokes about the coming Depression, living on the streets, the merits of different cooking preparations in making a meal of our dog, etc... It's making my husband, who doesn't care/know about economics as much as me kind of nervous.
Some of the best movies ever made date back to the 1930's. Maybe the next few years will be a cinematic renaissance.
I had only one stock go up, UNFI, which is a natural foods distributor.
Are there companies that make dog and/or cat food on the S&P? Probably a good depression proof stock.
Julie is my hero
