This is what I was trying to say originally. You don't need to lose money, just stay in the game. Example: go to the local grocery store. Do they sell bulky, heavy bags of potatoes for 2.00 (guessing)? Do they sell filet for 10.00 pound? Yes on both. Why not nix the potatoes? Because the filet won't sell. Think about it.
