On the opposite side of the spectrum there is Apple, BMW, Bose, Disney, FedEx, Godiva, Gucci, Lexus, and Nordstrom, all of which command premium prices: a skim pricing strategy.

Ed and Ron will examine them to gain an understanding of which strategy is appropriate given the realities of the marketplace.
