What is your opinion of Continental?

That looks pretty interesting. I enjoy these original and not so common businesses😁

When I was in high school, I was in a company in Brandýs for an internship. The community is great, it's just that they've struggled to grow properly in recent years. They're making a lot of money, but they were starting to save money back then. The salaries are pretty high, they're not likely to cut those because there are not enough people in the field. I'll avoid investing, but for long term growth the trend may reverse.
