Recent Buy - Flowers Foods (FLO)

I just wanted to mention my most recent purchase which was Flowers Foods (FLO) earlier this month. This purchase was right on the heels of an earnings miss. I view this as a buying opportunity and a temporary setback for Flowers Foods as the company is still guiding for higher YOY numbers for 2016.

I'm keeping this brief since I just purchased FLO in January. The Broke Dividend Investor also has an article on his site about his recent purchase as well if you want more be sure to check that out.
