The model is that -- favorite I think both companies are poised for for positive revisions yeah in the case of -- delays.
Company's guiding to about a dollar fifty to a dollar 55.
But the balance sheets a little bit sloppy right now because at some excess cash.
And then there's some dis synergies.
That I think they can work through faster than people realize.
So I think there's probably about you know three or 4% easy upside there and then the currency has started to go their way as well I think -- -- set a very low.
Base for themselves so that in that in the event of some positive surprises they could drop some numbers to the bottom.
Line you know and other analysts was telling -- recently that this is one of those rare cases where it was better for both companies to break up do you think that's true.
I think what we're seeing throughout the packaged goods universe is that focus tends to win over -- And Kraft had been trying to emphasize -- -- for many years they combine its snacks company with a a warehouse grocery company in both had very different routes to market they had different.

I think if you're looking for -- three to -- want to hear have to make money that's too easy.
So I didn't particularly for like two to three years out you would pick up -- believes its its its operating in emerging markets 44% of their sales.
It's it's got a great top line momentum behind day.
And I think it's picked -- on a long term basis it grows in the low teens -- but for the next couple years.
You know if you're looking for more safety.
The craft group has have very high dividend yield of four and a half percent I think -- have great visibility into cost savings I think the gross margin can go up.
250 basis points easily because of some low hanging fruit.
I think their earnings it is going to be very strong interest 12% EPS growth for a couple years for them to.
