CR is doing very well in the anime streaming business, but do you think they should get into the manga business?

Back in 2010, Crunchyroll did venture into the manga business partnered with another company to bring legal manga to the masses through an online business model. Unfortunately, it has since closed down earlier this year, not citing anything specific as to why it was shut down.

Whether or not this will be revived remains to be seen.
