Vertical Integration

We have the new buzzwords. No longer disintegration, but integration. From the WSJ:

Mr. Ellison is among the executives reviving "vertical integration," a 100-year-old strategy in which a company controls materials, manufacturing and distribution. Others moving recently in this direction include ArcelorMittal, PepsiCo Inc., General Motors Co. and Boeing Co.

The reasons vary. Arcelor, the world's largest steelmaker, wants more control over its raw materials. Pepsi wants more authority over distribution. GM and Boeing are moving by necessity, to assure quantity and quality of vital parts from troubled suppliers. Some are repurchasing businesses they only recently shed.

Vertical integration gets voted up on Wall Street while minarets get voted down in Switzerland!

MYRX is cheap but I like the megacap stocks better--and options on those.

Its just easier to make money on those-and they can't get pushed around
